In The Shadow Of The Moon

Hey, did you know there was a solar eclipse yesterday?! Obviously I’m kidding, because if you live in America it was virtually impossible to miss the mad coverage the “Great American Eclipse” garnered. No matter where I turned, it was ECLIPSE GLASSES and DON’T LOOK AT THE SUN and TOTALITY and blah blah blah. Eclipse…

It’s the last weekend of summer for Annabel! We’re both excited for her to go back to school, while also being sad her break is over. Last week, my mom took her clothes shopping, I bought her some shoes, and she got her back-to-school haircut. I told the hairdresser to keep the tiniest bit of…

This Is Not Okay

I spent the last four days squeezing out the last bit of summer with my kids. Annie and I went on a fun road trip to San Francisco, and then when we came back we met up with my mom and James and spent a day at Disneyland. The rest of our summer (only a…

Oh my goodness, this week has been a whirlwind! The book release on Tuesday and all the interviews, etc, around it were a total trip. I’m really glad I get to share all the craziness with Mike! Last night was our release party, so I’m actually writing this one in advance because I know I’m…

Our Happiest Trip

I love going to Disneyland (if that wasn’t already obvious) and we’re lucky that we live close and can go often. I had a blast when I took James to Disneyland for his birthday – he was so daring and wanted to go on every ride. Annabel, on the other hand, errs on the side…

So You Wanna Be A Pop Super Star

I totally dropped the ball when it came to enrolling the kids in summer activities. Normally I have them in at least six weeks of classes or lessons, but life was so hectic around sign up time that I missed out on the majority of options. Luckily, I managed to get them into one activity…
