Moulin Roty toy company

Here’s what it looks like these days: Luciana naps for 25-45 minutes at a time a few times a day. During said naps, mama either 1)gets a little exercise and /or takes a shower and/or throws some laundry in 2) frets that the house is a mess and tries to clean then remembers that it […]

Tane Organics

Am I way behind all hip mamas in that I am just now finding out about Tane Organics? I saw some of their stuff when I was in one of my most favorite baby stores and I am head-over-heels. Want to wrap Luciana up in everything they make. And who are the babies on their […]

I’m Dreaming of a White……

It’s early to start thinking of winter, especially when here in SoCal we’re having another Indian summer and it’s almost 90 degrees on the westside. Growing up in South Carolina and now living in LA I can’t say I’m a pro at winter. Real winter. I love to romanticize it, imagine myself in muffs and […]

Smock Paper

I think I’ve been admiring Smock Paper for a while. But not until this weekend, when I picked up a box of Thank You cards at Kellygreen did I realize it. (those are the ones I got–how lovely?!) Now I think I might only buy theirs. Smock is the first bamboo print shop in the […]

The Holgasnake

Carmen and I were thrown together as college roommates our freshman year. What a happy twist of fate that was: we’ve been best friends ever since. Remember my frolic in the poppies? That’s Carm, who’s also an insanely gifted and wildly creative artist and photographer. She came over last week and we had Luciana photo […]

Ramona Trent family photos

I have insanely talented friends–just feel blessed that way. One of them, the lovely Ramona Trent (equally lovely name) takes exquisite photos of mamas, babies, and families. If you’re in the SoCal area you might give yourself a gift of a session with her. Let’s travel back in time a couple months… Recognize that person? […]

TIlted and Shifted

I’ve been taking a lot of walks lately. That’s what they tell pregnant women to do, and it does feel really good. I usually opt not to drag my camera, but I do often carry my phone because OMG HOW CAN I BE SEPARATED FROM IT?! No, really it’s because sometimes I listen to music […]

If I Were a Flower…..

I do realize I posted peony pictures last week. However, those passed and I bought more. At any other time of year I put off going to Trader Joe’s as long as possible because of their parking lots. At peony time it’s worth organizing an afternoon around. This new bunch became so spectacular that they […]

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 […]

The Great Outdoors

As we continue to make progress on the inside of the house, it’s getting rather gorgeous outside so we’ve been taking some action around outdoor furniture. I have fantasies of nursing the baby on a big chaise lounge in this half of the front yard which as you can see is screaming to be occupied […]
