    When we were lucky enough to get to stay at a friend’s cabin in Cape Cod, she introduced us to the most marvelous breakfast item called “French breakfast muffins” at Chatham Cookware. When we stayed there again the next year, for a...
  • The Best Sources for Modern Lighting on Etsyby Anna Smith of Annabode + Co. While most people collect objects, I collect…Etsy shops!  If you’re not familiar with the site, drop whatever you’re doing and prepare to go down the interior design rabbit hole.  Etsy is my go-to n...
  • How to Style a Trench Coat
    on Feb 24, 2016 in Style
    I’ve had a long love affair with trench coats. I only wish there was a longer season to wear one here! I’m happy to say that they seem to be having a particular moment again this spring—sometimes looking very classic (à la Kramer v Kr...
  • Meal Plans and a delivery service
    on Feb 23, 2016 in Food & Drink
    I’m more of a baker than a cook. I like to follow instructions and make the kind of messes where everyone clamors to lick the bowl. Aron is actually the better cook: A dash of this, a measure of that: he can wing it—and fast. I like directio...
  • Prep before the Oscars
    on Feb 22, 2016 in Hither & Thither
    Will you be watching the Oscars next weekend? Whenever award season comes around, it’s a reminder of how few movies I’ve seen in theatres. I guess I’ve got a week to catch up. What were your top picks of this year’s nominees?
  • Thank you, Harper Lee (& Friday Links)
    on Feb 19, 2016 in Hither & Thither
    “The one thing that doesn’t abide by majority rule is a person’s conscience.” Harper Lee passed away today. With a story as relevant today as ever, she no doubt has played a significant part of so many of our lives, and in g...
  • Almond Trees in Bloom
    on Feb 19, 2016 in Family
    The trees are filled with flowers right now! It feels early, but looking back over our recent years in California, the timing is fairly consistent. We visited a grove of Almond trees the other night just before the rain started to fall. Can you imag...
  • Reading After Kids & The Art of Auto-Fiction
    on Feb 18, 2016 in Hither & Thither
    Hannah and I have been online friends for years now. We both contributed an interview to a series called Boarding Pass on Anne Ditmeyer’s blog, Prêt à Voyager, and I’ve been following her since—often to see what how she’s styl...
  • Thinking About: Girl Engrossed in Cellphone
    on Feb 17, 2016 in Hither & Thither Guest post
    There was an article in The New Yorker recently, “The Useless Agony of Going Offline,” about a man who started the year off with a three-day tech break—inspired by his reading about how a selfie can turn tragic. “Guy Looking at...
  • Scenes from the (Valentine) Weekend
    on Feb 16, 2016 in Family
    It was a funny mish-mash of seasons over the weekend: signs of spring seemed to burst forth from every tree as we drove up into the mountains on Sunday to play in the snow. Our activities were equally all over the place, which made for a full, fun, h...

    You know about Taco Tuesdays? I think we need to instate Fromage Fridays. Are you with me? We are thinking of driving up to the snow on Saturday—a quick visit to Lake Tahoe. On Sunday, we’re going to pay a visit to a local Hops farm with fri...
  • Whale Song
    on Jan 29, 2016 in Uncategorized
    I saw an incredible clip of a paddle boarder and two whales (in Australia) this week, and it made me recall the underwater photography of Anuar Patjane. His photograph—below—of a humpback whale and her newborn calf around Roca Partida Island i...
