We made it to another Friday! This weekend my parents are in town babysitting so my husband and I can go to a fancy lunch and wine pairing at Arista Winery with our friends. I can’t remember the last time we had a whole day away from the kids, so we’re both looking forward to […]
Being a mom is an emotional rollercoaster. Here’s what #momlife is really like, as told by the most expressive stock photo model I have ever seen.
It’s Friday the 13th! Are you superstitious? I’m typically not, but this day always gives me the creeps, probably because I hate horror movies, and it makes me think of the Freddy Kruger movies I was forced to watch at sleepovers when I was a kid.

Happy Passover and Happy Easter! We’re hosting Easter this year for fourteen adults and ten kids, so it’s been a busy week getting ready for that on top of the week’s usual routine and attending a fun private shopping party Thursday night at Ambiance hosted by San Francisco Moms Blog! For Easter, we’re actually cheating […]
It was a good week for my family as we learned our daughter got assigned to our first choice of public kindergartens in San Francisco! If you’re not familiar with the process, it’s overwhelming, so we’re grateful and relieved to have it behind us. I’m hoping you’ve heard good news, too, if you’re in a similar […]
