Mother's Day

Finding a gift for my mom tends to be really difficult. She's inordinately picky about what she wears (not that I can fault her), she's firm on what gadgets she actually wants in her kitchen (no Nespresso — crazy, right?!), and now that we've all migrated to Kindle e-readers...books are out. And frankly, the woman does NOT want...
Spring in general & Mother's Day specifically calls for flowers. Ordered, delivered, arranged....for self, as a gift, at home or as a subscription...our ideas inside.
March is a mood. We're feeling it. It's natural to crave spring cleaning and spirit brightening right now, and we've found both, in the simple pleasures that are fresh flowers + beautiful vases. Flowers On Order: Arrangements, Delivery, Vases & More We've fallen in local love with Snapdragon Flowers in Philly. We also have eyes and hearts on Roots and...
Mother's Day 2020: At home. In quarantine. Here's our wishlist of what us moms actually want: acts of service, pretty gifts, time, space & more.
When we brought up Mother's Day at a team meeting a few weeks ago, it was met with groans. Surprisingly, the groans weren't just mine. Mother's Day — even in a pre-COVID world — is often a day of un-met expectations, and, given the state of the world, we were inclined to just ignore it. What We Actually...

What do you want for Mother's Day this year? To get together with your girlfriends you haven't seen in weeks, drink some wine and go dancing? (Just me?)

Over the years, my husband has developed a...formula, if you will, for celebrating Mother's Day that knocks my socks off. It's meaningful, affordable, and starts the day off with the rosiest of glows so that it really doesn't matter what else we do. We tend to do this instead of traditional gifts, per se. (If we did gifts, then...

Nurses need our applause from the balconies, but presents are appreciated now too. We've rounded up the best gifts for nurses, who need our thank yous now.
To say nurses and other healthcare workers are heroes, especially right now, is an understatement. They're risking their lives daily to save patients, working over 12 hours a day...and missing their friends and families to take care of our friends and families. 'Selfless' doesn't begin to cover it. There was a discussion on our Facebook insiders group page...

Almost six years ago to the day, I was awaiting a little bundle to arrive. My due date was Mother's Day, so sweet. My little bundle had other ideas though and decided to wait OVER A WEEK LONGER to make her arrival. Sounds about right, now that I know this little bundle as a little human. But that Mother's Day,...
So, "don't put all your eggs in one basket" is about to be deconstructed and reconstructed beautifully into "put all your eggs in the frittata" and "put all your towels in the basket." Stay with me :-). Brunch is just the best! I personally love to pick at little bits of food early in the morning; just a coffee and...
Have you heard of Amazon Handmade?  It's a special section of Amazon.com dedicated to individual artisans who have all sorts of handcrafted gorgeousness to offer.  It's also a realllllly good place to get lost - where you start browsing at 10PM and suddenly look up to find it's somehow 1AM.  One of those truly addicting spaces. As you might imagine, Amazon...
