elodie, 2 months - palm springs, california

we just went out to the new ace hotel in palm springs for a photo shoot with elodie. we spent 4 peaceful nights under the stars listening to gram parsons echoing off the mountains. i have a feeling we are going to be spending a lot of time at our new home away from home. it just doesn't feel so bad to be up with the rising sun (thanks to the newborn) when you are out in the desert and able to take a dip to get rid of your sleep deprivation. oh and they have stumptown coffee. also necessary for this weary mama. i will never forget these sweet first weeks as a family.

and so it begins...

i started a blog back in 2006 while I was working at coach in nyc.  it quickly collected dust as i prepared for my wedding, traveled the world, moved across country and had a beautiful baby. several days and thousands of miles later here i am in sunny los angeles looking out the window at my beautiful backyard. what is my intention? to share with those who care to stop a second a brief moment of respite, some reflections on my journey as a mama, wife, friend, sister, daughter, designer/working mom, community member and all around citizen of the world. so pull up a chair!  you are welcome here.
