Love this Winter Flower Story! Foraged from the yard, this Renaissance painting worthy display of berries, kumquats, amaryllis blooms and Alba Plena Camellia would bring depth and drama to the winter tablescape.

Great Shopping: Orchard Mile

A good friend from my city days, has recently moved into our hood. Not he, himself literally, but a brand he is intimately involved with called Orchard Mile. From now through mid-January, Orchard Mile has a pop-up shop at 371 Greenwich Avenue, next door to Le Tarte. And let me tell you, every item in the shop… read more

Two Great Reads

I am 4 books into a “great read chain”, having just finished two really different but both excellent books. I first read Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less, by Greg McKeown, after a chaotic month of September where I felt like I was a whirling dervish, trying to get too many things done at once…. read more

Favorite Place: Christ Church Books and Gifts

Tucked away under the main building at Christ Church on the Post Road is Christ Church Books and Gifts. I stumbled upon it one day, and to say that it was more than I expected is an understatement. Becky Ford, who has run the store for the last four years, is spectacular. Knowledgable, charming, and pure… read more

Great Resource: Special Education Legal Fund

Do you flow?

The Return of the Fanny Pack

Gucci Marmont Belt Bag I’m just gonna say it. I am completely digging the resurgence of the fanny pack. I’ll admit it’s an acquired taste, but I just can’t imagine anything easier than having your hands free while running errands, watching soccer games, or hanging at a concert.

Why We All Need to Recycle

I am proud to say that thanks to a few close friends and a large bunch of their supporters, plastic bags were recently banned in our town. You can read more about that movement here. I stumbled upon this Now This video about what happens to items when they are a part of single stream… read more

Great Kitchen Investment: Stainless Steel Pots and Pans

I am going to come clean, which I haven’t done on the blog enough recently, but I was a terrible chef for myself, my kids, and my husband last year. I’m not proud to say there were many nights when I left my husband fending for himself and whipping up some very creative leftovers (read… read more

Parent Talk with Cristina Young – Thriving During Back to School

I’m thrilled to welcome Cristina Young back to the blog just in time for ‘”back to school”. I always find her commentary (previously here and here) to be useful and on point as I navigate the ever-changing landscape of parenthood. If you are anything like me, you stumble into September feeling unprepared for a faster… read more
