  We spent a week in NYC last month - the whole fam.  Mike had a conference to attend, so myself and the boys tagged along. It was no hardship.     // JavaScript is currently disabled in this browser. Reactivate it to view this content. We rented an apartment near a park, and spent our days exploring, just the three of us.  I had...
  A few weeks ago, we headed down to Kelly drive to go for a little family walk.  And were greeted by this sight:    Oh.  Oh.  It was the Manyunk Bike Race, which is, apparentely, a big deal.  There was music, and beer, and a kiddie carnival.  They had some sort of zip-line thing for kids that dare-devil Raines was ALL...
Our move from Denver to Philadelphia was pretty heart-breaking.  I mean YES, it was our (Mike's) decision, nobody was forcing us (Mike)* to move, but still. We left so many good friends behind.  But I'll never forget our first foray into Philly.  We took the train and somehow ended up in Chinatown.  It was agonizingly hot, so humid you...
We had a seriously amazing weekend.  I had booked us for a family workshop at The Clay Studio after spotting their bumper sticker on the back of a car.  When I eventually looked them up, I couldn't believe the find.  The Clay Studio started as affordable studio space for students just out of art school...but has since expanded into...
We had the most amazing Saturday.  It was our long-anticipated day date (aka my Christmas and Valentine's Day present).  And while I had visions of waltzing around the city in something wildly glamorous...Saturday was a mushpot of snow, sleet, and freezing rain.  So instead, I wore this:   We started at the Art Museum, where we - get this - wandered...

Local Love: Lulu’s Casita

Thanks to Vivi Gonzalez and Jessica Robles Worch, Mainline mamas have a new place to hang:  Lulu's Casita.   Lulu's Casita is a kid-friendly cafe and play space where "kids can play and parents can stay".  And at Lulu's Casita, they are serious about play.  For example, there are runways and dress up and giant blocks....   ...and an insane attention to...
We spent a sun-and-fun soaked weekend in Cape May a few weeks ago, and it was one of those rare occasions that I managed to pack perfectly.  I brought just a few things, but felt chic and comfortable in every situation we encountered.  Here's what I brought...and how I plan to extend it for our beach week(s) in Michigan.   Weekend...
Gang, I (mostly) stay at home while my husband works.  And we live far, far from family.  This may not be a forever arrangement (both the staying at home or living far from family...) so I'm taking advantage of it while I can.  So Raines and I?  We flew.  Lots. And now that Pax is here...we three fly.  Lots. In...
Mamas, you know those hiking backpacks?  The big ones? Hi, Dad. Yeah.  They are heavy.  I bought this one (after trying on, like 10 others), simply because it was the only backpack I found that didn't make me feel like I was going to fall backwards, turtle-like (It's MEC, btw. WOOT WOOT Canada). Notice, however, the date. Raines is juuuust over one....
October in Italy, like anywhere in the northern hemisphere, can be tricky. One may start the month in shorts and end it in a turtleneck, depending on your luck and where in Italy you're going. . . but the key to dressing in tricky weather is layering pieces with sophisticated flare over basics.
