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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Olive Part II

As promised, the story of Olive…. She’d started hanging around the house in early June and seemed to want to adopt me. Then I had the fiasco with the cat carrier I could not wrangle her into (did I post about that? I forget. It didn’t go well) and in the process ticked her off […]

Plums and Olive

My landlady recently had a juicy harvest of plums. When she texted me to ask if I had any good plum recipes, I sent her this one and let her know that if she had too many and wanted me to make jam I’d give her some of the bounty when it was finished. She […]

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 […]

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 […]

Long Weekend!

from the ever-beautiful We may or may not head out of town. You? Hoping the weather stays warm so I can do a long hike with the man. I’ll follow the blogging trend of leaving you weekend tidbits, and wish you rest, play, and only good memories this Memorial. You can imagine how silly I […]
