I revel in any opportunity to make a gift guide – especially when it involves dreaming up what the amazing women in my life might like to receive around the holidays. We work hard – really hard – and generally expend all our energy taking care of others and making sure...

After Daisy was born, I struggled to try to produce breastmilk. Given that she was eight weeks early and delivered by C-section, my body wasn’t prepared - and I was exclusively pumping. I worked at it for four months - pumping several times a day only to produce an oun...

It may seem un-patriotic to post this the day after the Fourth of July, but it's because I really do love so much about this country that I feel compelled to share my thoughts on our parental leave policies. This is one of the world's greatest nations but we should be...

The Bachelor (ABC)

Yes, I do watch the Bachelor. (Okay, and the Bachelorette... and Bachelor in Paradise - don't judge me). I watch them because they give me time to quiet my brain and disengage from intellectual stimulation. These shows entertain me...

When I was pregnant with Daisy, I hardly experienced any morning sickness. It was pure bliss until the last trimester with her. This pregnancy has been the complete opposite in every way: I have been nauseous every second of the day since the very beginning. Like so na...

When I was pregnant, I often wrote letters to Daisy. I have shared some of them here on this blog. After she was born, I continued to write letters to her and I now email them to a GMail account I opened in her name just before she came into the world. I love writing l...

I wrote this post a while ago and decided to let myself cool down before posting it. Sure enough, I feel just as passionately now as I did after Daisy’s birthday party, so, I’ve decided to share it.

After a weekend spent with family celebrating Daisy’s first birthday at...
