Our friend Hannah was wearing this wide sailor bracelet a couple of weeks ago, and we (Pilar and I) decided that we wanted to get the same ones, joking that it would be our “friendship bracelet”. Now all of our friends (and my daughter) want the same one. I think the reason why it really […]

For my birthday my husband took me on a long overdue romantic weekend sans our daughter. We toured Sullivan County staying at small B&B’s, namely Ecce, in Barrysville, which is perched on top of a mountain with a stunning view of the Delaware River where it’s almost guaranteed you see a bald eagle, and we […]

Yesterday we ran into Ilana Anger, the designer of the sweet kids line called Little Lief, at a trade show called Playtime here in NYC. She had on this fantastic shawl meets coat that we were crazy about. Turns out, she actually designed it and had it made, and is selling it under her kids […]

I know, it’s the time of year you’re thinking about a different kind of tree than one that bears apples, but come on, how sweet is this apple tree kit, called “An Apple Tree to Be Kit“. It includes everything you need to grow an apple tree, except for patience, which you will need to […]

Let’s be honest here: The past two years of back-to-back pregnancies have done no wonders for my girlish figure. And as my second maternity leave—three months of basically sporting the same combination of nursing top, yoga pants, and Birkenstock Gizeh sandals—was winding down recently, I found myself 1) still unable to fit into most of […]

Our friend Julia Leach, whose line, Chance, we have featured in the past, just debuted her new collection at Barney’s. While the classic boatneck shirts from the the original collection are our go-to favorites (I’ve washed them a thousand times and they still look perfect), we are equally excited by the new colors and stripe […]


mothersday_breakfast

Last year a few days before Mother’s Day, I was talking with a few moms about their plans for that day when everyone (a.k.a. spouse) is supposed to do everything perfectly. One mom, rather conspiratorially, admitted that she hated breakfast in bed. One by one, the others chimed in. The complaints ranged from the maple […]
