Happy Endings

Today was going to be the end of the world. Or so I heard.  A friend told me when she was in Macchu Piccu the descendants of the Mayans there were planning on throwing a huge party today. That this wasn’t the end as in we’re all goners, but an end as in a time […]

A Girl’s Guide to Lifting the Clouds

This was kind of an epic weekend for Luciana. Saturday morning we went to a pumpkin patch with her cousins after which Mama took her to a playground where she continued her mastery of the slide.   And wore herself out.   (For those of you following me on Instagram I know you’ve kinda seen these. I […]

The Me I’m Not

I haven’t known what to write lately, and hence, if you’ve noticed, haven’t written in a while. I could of course go on and on about Luciana-every day she does something that blows my mind, even if often by the end of the day when I go to write in her journal I can’t remember […]

The Good Old Days

Hi friends. We’ve been up to all sorts of mischief over here, including touring the Getty museum where Luciana walked downhill for the first time. That was priceless.   Some heavy things have gone down too. A woman I barely know lost her 21-month-old daughter. Though I didn’t know her well at all I sobbed […]

Baby Belly

Welcome to the new site! I have been dreaming of having a website for literally years, and after seeing Jora’s re-designed blog and learning that the beautiful Desi had designed it, I sent her an email asking if she’d be up to creating a site for me. It’s one of those things I was never […]


A couple of mornings ago, Luciana woke up at 6:15. I woke up at 6:06 and upon checking the clock, immediately panicked. My daughter has slept past 6am exactly 3 times in the past 6 months, so 6:15 seemed like justifiable cause for alarm. Then I remembered: oh yes. Me and worry. We’re old friends […]


We were here last week. 5 square miles in the Caribbean Ocean and, including us, there were 8 people on the resort. We had Time as a family Time as a couple (oops no couple pics) Time individually with Luciana Time alone It was such a happy week–we haven’t had that much time together the […]

Am I Still Here….?

I just put Luciana to bed. Her new favorite thing is to cruise over to the baby monitor which up until now has perched on the edge of her crib. I see her on the monitor see it, head for it, and I’m whispering to her in the hopes of telepathically communicating to her, “Don’t […]

8 Months

Luciana is 8 months today. Or yesterday. I’m writing this on Thursday but it’ll post on Friday so….ok. She’s 8 months or 8 months and a day. I’ve been really emotional this week and though it doesn’t feel specifically about her having a mini-birthday, I think in some ways it is. I already feel her […]

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 […]
