Birthday Cake

I’ve been stalling on this one because this recipe is just so dang long to write out! But we’re leaving town in less than a week and I can’t put this off til we get back. That would be wrong. I BAKED recently. It’s not something that happens all that often around here because I’m […]

My Stanislavski

Here are a few pics from Taos–we had a gorgeous time, all 4 generations of us. Luciana is now obsessed with dogs (or “dah” as she says whenever we see one) thanks to Sam and Lucy, who she spent lots of floor time with. The newness of what she does every day continues. Today was […]

Weekend for Three

As I said we were, we went away last weekend. It was….so lovely. Sky and I had amazing time with Luciana together—that was most of the weekend and that was wonderful. She looked back and forth to us with what seemed like big delight and a bit of fascination—we were really light on the family […]

Off We Go

We’re going away this weekend. Just the 2 of you, everyone asks? Mais non. I just got my fulltime mom life back–I’m not giving my baby up for a night. However, while this is a family trip, Sky and I are super excited about this weekend for us as a couple. Can we talk for […]


Sky and I went to a wedding of a dear friend last weekend. Luciana came with us to the ceremony as that part was at 2 in the afternoon, and she got to wear her first party dress, which was courtesy of a wonderful friend in the fashion world of New York. It ended up […]

What She Is…..

Somewhere in Luciana’s first weeks of life I started talking to her about her Little Body and Big Soul. I think it first came out when I was comforting her—it struck me, and still strikes me daily— how much feeling and spirit is in her currently 14-lb, 26-inch physical body. Every day it seemed we’d […]

First Thanksgiving and Four Months

Hope you all have had a beautiful couple of weeks! We spent Thanksgiving in Taos with my dad, stepmom, grandmother, 2 sisters, and brother-in-law. ‘Twas a merry crew. Luciana’s adventures included meeting her great-grandmother (who doesn’t want pics of herself online), seeing her first snow wearing her first mittens (thanks, Karianne!) and helping Mama catch […]

Raised Corn Pancakes, or how to Lull Your Baby to Sleep

Of course everything now has to come back to the baby in some way, shape, or form. I did, in fact, cook this weekend! It seems like the family thing to do to make delicious brunch food. I’m not, after all, racing off the farmers market (too crowded for the babe at this age) or […]

Peaches and the Great Indoors

It was so incredible to read your comments on my birth story. Thank you so much for all the love and support. To all of you who hopped over from Lovely Morning over the last couple of weeks, it’s a treat to have you! Stop by anytime. And to the mamas who shared your experiences […]

Luciana 12 days

I’m working on my birth story. It’s taking me a while. In the meantime, I have nothing to tell you about my life that doesn’t involve my daughter. No new recipes, no outings, just cocooned in the baby bubble. So here she is in her first week at home. She’s 12 days old now. Adventures […]
