Highly specific food recommendations, rainy day toddler distractions, and one great kale salad

Hi there, Happy November! I’m just as shocked as you are 🙂 Finn just hit two months (and celebrated his first Halloween as the snuggly hippo sidekick to Lilly’s Cookie Monster) and time is moving at a scary pace. I know that the year will be over before I can blink. I’ve been coping by using my 5-minute … Continue reading Highly specific food recommendations, rainy day toddler distractions, and one great kale salad

New addition + back to school essentials, newborn nap MVPs, and the first muffin I’ve loved

Hello world! Meet Finn! He arrived on August 31st and we’ve spent the last month getting to know each other. It’s been an interesting, challenging, joyful, and exhausting experience transitioning to being a family of four. But on the whole, things feel wonderfully, magically complete. Four feels right for us.  And so, this is my attempt … Continue reading New addition + back to school essentials, newborn nap MVPs, and the first muffin I’ve loved

Toddler swim essentials, inexpensive foot fixers, and a summer salad to make on repeat

Hi there, Happy post-Fourth of July! We were up in Maine with my parents and sister and it was, as my mom says, #thewaylifeshouldbe. Lilly couldn’t stay out of the water even though it was still goosebumpy cold, and we ate all our meals on the porch. Now we’re back in Brooklyn and I’m starting the … Continue reading Toddler swim essentials, inexpensive foot fixers, and a summer salad to make on repeat

I’d never heard of them until my friend and travel guru Brandon raved about his trip there, describing them as “Portugal Hawaii, but with cooler weather.” They’ve also been compared to Iceland because of … Continue reading Your next island vacation, ultra-refreshing summer drinks, and the easiest brow fixer

Type-A time off, big kid birthday celebrations, and non-terrible maternity swim

Hi there, Some news! As I shared last week, I’ve decided to leave Hungryroot. It was an amazing experience building the brand and working with the team and now I’m excited to reset before figuring out what I want to tackle next. I know how lucky I am to be able to take time in between things, especially with … Continue reading Type-A time off, big kid birthday celebrations, and non-terrible maternity swim

Important nut butter intel, belly-friendly leggings, and my favorite strawberry cake

Hi all, We’re on our way to Maine for the long weekend and intend to do very, very little. I’m packing not one, but two books (ambitious but have to take advantage of eager grandparents when you can) and am planning on logging as much porch time as possible.  Here are a handful of things to … Continue reading Important nut butter intel, belly-friendly leggings, and my favorite strawberry cake

Springtime cooking (finally!), better thank-you notes, and a handful of Mother’s Day ideas

Hi there, It’s gloriously sunny today, which is extra welcome after a very gloomy Sunday. I used to love rainy weekends because they were a great excuse to stay inside and get things done…but with a toddler it’s more of a toy/book/art/screen marathon—anything to keep her occupied. Needless to say, yesterday afternoon we made giant … Continue reading Springtime cooking (finally!), better thank-you notes, and a handful of Mother’s Day ideas
