“When you know better, you do better.” ~ Maya Angelou I had planned on waiting to get through the holidays before posting about this. But it’s too important and I sense that what I’ve experienced over the past six weeks might help some of you as we head into the season of sugar cookies and champagne (two of my favorite things, by the by).

Best Matcha Smoothie

It’s equal parts fresh lemon juice, grated ginger root and mint, Read More →

Catching up

Emerson in Malibu Golden Hour

Happy Monday, Friends! So much to catch up on and I’m just not sure where to start. I’m writing for All Parenting these days. Here’s a selection of some recent stories you might want to check out. Why I’m raising an only child (I’m owning this one. One kid is awesome and in the interest in keeping it real, it’s the most I could possibly handle.) Rookie guide to starting kindergarten (It’s true, Emerson is in big kid school and we are all adjusting. This experience really deserves its own post.
