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 […]

Tasting Menu or How Luciana was Born

I started preparing for Luciana’s birth many months ago. Over Thanksgiving, when I was about 7 weeks pregnant, I read Your Best Birth, watched The Business of Being Born, and hired my wonderful doula, Ilona. By the end of the year, I’d read Ina Mae’s Guide to Childbirth, interviewed several midwives, and scouted childbirth classes. […]

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 […]

She’s Here

I didn’t run off to Zanzibar. WE HAD OUR BABY It’s true what they say: sometimes I don’t make it to the shower and suddenly it’s 8:00 at night. All I can say is that I’m that person who stares at her child while the child sleeps. And somehow the day flies by. Birth was…..bigger […]

Belly on Blue

You all know I have the most rad sister-in-law in the world. Amazing designer, crafty person, party planner, blogger, MAMA, and yes, photographer. She popped over yesterday with my nephew and snapped a few quick end-of-the-road belly shots. I LOVE them. The turquoise wall is the accent wall of our nursery–I promise I’ll post pics […]

Birth Plan and Why We’re Having the Baby in a Hospital

Friday already! Love a short holiday week, though I am on a fairly permanent weekend schedule til the hummingbird arrives. Thought I’d share my birth plan today. I found it so helpful when I was writing mine to read other women’s, and I definitely borrowed from them as well as got help from my midwife […]

4th of July Weekend

I made and wrote a bunch of Thank You notes all you need is colorful inexpensive cards from Paper Source, along with a Thank You stamp and an ink pad. the state of my desk on Sunday morning. I kinda like the chaos for once. There’s that ink pad. Sky and I went away for […]

Now there’s not much to do but wait. I had my second shower this weekend, this one co-ed and hosted by the lovely and amazing Kristina and her husband/Sky’s brother Brock. (Some women who take my yoga class threw me a beautiful one earlier this month.) I do love a coed shower. I knew it […]

First June Weekend

I can’t take credit for these photos—that goes to Kristina when she, Brock and Dashiell stayed here while their house had some painting done on the inside. But I will take credit for landing at Trader Joe’s where it is indeed peony time, and landing there at the perfect moment to snatch some of the […]

A Salad That’s Almost a Sandwich

Have you noticed I declare blogging schedules and then am incapable of following them? My 3x a week posting plan has gone…..I don’t know where. To the land of prenatal yoga which I seem to be doing on those mornings I envisioned myself here. Ah well. To catch you up on Mamaland: reading A LOT […]
