A Year Ago

A year ago tonight I went into labor. Luciana turns one on Sunday. Every day as I hold her I marvel that this can be so. I get teary a lot because my baby is not, in fact, a tiny baby anymore. She is actually incredibly tall and incredibly stable, and her body is so […]


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 […]

Next Week

My friends! I’m missing you. Luciana and I are heading to Taos tomorrow and I’m unplugging in a big way. Would you promise to visit me here next week? I’ve been jotting down notes on a post I’m really excited to write. Have a beautiful week; drink in the long days; may you feel enormous […]

In Time

Dear Luciana, We were grounded today since my car died two days ago and Daddy and I are sharing his for the moment. It was perfect–we couldn’t do any errands or even any outings that require a car, so we took 2 walks, played in the yard both morning and afternoon, had a visit from […]

Get Curious

OMG people. I’m taking a detour today from mama musings because I can’t not share the adorableness that is Tiny Curiosity. Created by one of my besties Carmen‘s cousin Julia, it is honestly some of the most darling baby clothes, nursery decor, and little accessories that I’ve ever seen. Seriously! Don’t stop reading if you’re […]

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 […]

We Love Now….

A couple of things I am really enjoying with Miss Thing over here: First, the Kissy Kissy long-sleeve onesie. Someone gave me one of these before Luciana was born (I think that person was hedging a bet I was having a girl—the onesie had lace trim and everything) and after one wear I immediately went […]

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 […]

The Post I Forgot to Title

I meant it when I said I have 14 posts in my head. Now that I’m sitting here it’s boggling trying to decide what to write. The past 2 months were really big–wonderful and so challenging and all new. The short version is I never felt I made the wrong decision in deciding to work […]
