I knew early in my pregnancy that I wanted both grandmas to be present at Judge’s birth. He’s the first grandchild on both sides, and there’s just something about having so much maternal wisdom around–I knew it would be a special time. Read the rest of this entry »
About a year and a half ago I leveled up my the San Francisco hipster game and bought a record player. Turns out, it was a great decision. Read the rest of this entry »
Spring is here! Ok, so spring arrived in San Francisco months ago–or never left–but spring styles are here! And that deserves a little excitement.
This week hubs is away on business, so it’s my first week alone with our little guy. We are having so much fun.

Everywhere I go, I have a little partner in crime, and I’m loving it. Read the rest of this entry »
