2/25: Thoughts from the week


-The Jewel lullaby CD is AMAZING. It was a gift to Livi from her nana, and we made it part of the bedtime ritual. Meal time, bath, lotion, brush her hair, read a story, then put Jewel on to sway, bounce or rock her to sleep. By the yodel song (which I think is #6?) […]

Tie Fail


So many fun adventures today! A world beat class (which was amaaaaaazzing) hike at Sabino Canyon and dinner with an intimate party of 17. I was SO excited to take world beat this morning. As I mentioned before, there’s no recorded music, only live drummers, and we dance to international rhythms including African, Latin and […]

“Everywhere you look”

Things that go “smack” in the night

Postpartum eats

There wasn’t a difference between night and day, and […]

Slow cooker chicken coconut curry


Last time I made Thai food, I almost burned our faces off with the spiciness factor. This is coming from a girl who eats jalapenos straight-up. It was borderline too much for me too handle, and way too spicy for the Pilot, who likes spicy foods, but not the same way I do. This time, […]
