April 27th, 2012

Of all the careers I’ve had in my life (and there have been MANY), I wish more than anything that I could have been a graphic designer. I’m completely passionate about the appearance, design and packaging of – well, everything – and admire those who do it well. Seriously, I watch documentaries about fonts, people. Alas, […]

about face, part two: foundation

April 25th, 2012

Foundation seems to be one of the biggest make-up challenges for women – so I’m devoting an entire post to the stuff. First things first: You need foundation. Yes, I’m talking to you. Foundation evens out your skin tone, provides a base for the rest of your make-up and offers protection from the elements (sun, pollutants, etc.). Today’s foundations […]

My weekly outing with Noah was less “let’s do something fun that Noah will love”, and more “Chelsea’s home for spring break and I really want to go here. And Noah will get a cookie out of the deal”.

Last month I received an e-mail from the wonderful Sarah Bryden Brown, inviting me to the very first “Blogstar Sunday Supper”.

One of the nicest surprises about raising Noah now (versus when Chelsea and Conor were little), is the vastly improved design of most things baby-related. There are so many more options for beautifully designed, well-made furnishings, toys, books and equipment to choose from – especially in the area of contemporary design. So imagine my delight in discovering the […]
