when you wish upon a...

summer fridays at my work are officially beginning. i'm wishing upon a seahorse (i couldn't find a really great image of a star, sue me) that i can find a way to work from home and not have to long for summer fridays. *wish* *wish* *wish* that should do it!

our first family portrait in travel + leisure?!

when we were called by our friend kelly to come be 'the family' in the ace hotel palm springs travel + leisure photo spread, i gotta admit, i was a bit unnerved. i just had a baby 2 months prior and wasn't feeling remotely photogenic. but thanks to some smokes and mirrors (and a big caftan!) we ended up with a lovely family portrait. i have to share - look at baby elodie's pointy head!!

water, sunshine, summer

a cool pond surrounded by pines, an old stone pool in buck's county on a hot summer day, salty air and sun reflecting off crashing waves in cardiff-by-the sea. i am going to do everything possible to stay under water until fall arrives.

meet me at the chateau...

today i had a lovely 3 hour lunch with elodie, my friend ulrika and her gorgeous 6 month old boy kasper at the chateau marmont. michael took this picture right before we left for our mama date. honestly, the best thing about having an infant is that you can take them ANYWHERE! all they care about is that they are near you! we just laid them out on the floor on their blankets with a few little teething toys and they were happy as clams. 

i know people have written a thousand times about the aden + anais muslin blankets but really, they are that great so I'm gonna say it as well! i use them to swaddle her, burp her, as a regular lightweight blanket and a cover while breastfeeding. i also like the new muslin dream blankets that they have come out with. this is definitely my new baby shower gift!!
