Pumpkin Time

Pumpkin Time

Happy fall! There is a chill in the air, the days are slowly getting shorter, and I have switched my cold brew for hot lattes (decaf with almond milk of course). If you are like me around this time every year you start to get a hankering for pumpkin spice anything. Muffins, granola, muffins, pie… nothing says fall more than pumpkin. Unfortunately most pumpkin flavored treats are huge sugar and calorie bombs. Most…but not all!

This fall Daily Harvest is excited to introduce our very first seasonal flavor…Pumpkin Pie! Sweet, creamy and yet still good for you this blend packed with Vitamins and antioxidants will get you right into the fall spirit! To order your Pumpkin Pie smoothie today,click here.

Hermione’s Quilt

Hermione’s Quilt

I will be the first to admit that I love shopping for Hermione. Is there anything cuter than tiny little girl’s clothes? Ok, maybe the tiny little girls that inhabit said clothes! Before Hermione was born I had her closet well stocked with many, many summer dresses, rompers and outfits.  We spent her first summer in East Hampton and I has so much fun dressing her up for all of our adventures. Even though she was very much an infant I made sure she was well outfitted for every walk to town, trip to the beach, sunset at our favorite vineyard and family BBQ. Read more

How is it August? This summer is flying by way too fast. Hermione, Doug, Maddy and I have been having a wonderful time in East Hampton with lots of beach trips, swims in the pool, backyard play and farm stand visits.  Read more

Cold Brew Season

Cold Brew Season

I grew up in a coffee drinking household. My dad spent most of his career in the coffee, sugar and cocoa industry so there were always pounds and pounds of coffee around. In college my coffee drinking habit got a little out of control ( it was theater school after all) and I found myself consuming multiple fancy coffee drinks a day. Knowing that all that caffeine (not to mention the milk that went with it…yuck!) was not so good for me I quit cold turkey a few years after I graduated.  Read more

#stopcensoringmotherhood

Since Hermione’s arrival 14 (gasp!) months ago my Instagram feed has been mostly images of her and all of the amazing (walking!) and adorable (toothy smiles!) things she does every day. Being Hermione’s mama is truly the best thing I have ever done in my life and I am proud to share her pictures with my social media followers.

Daily Harvest

Daily Harvest

Friends have often told me they wish I would come to their house and make them one of my smoothies every day. I get it. Smoothie making can get frustrating for even me. Keeping our fridge and freezer stocked with ample ingredients can be difficult and more often than not produce goes bad before it all gets used.

Celebrating Hermione’s First Year

I love birthday parties. From Alice in Wonderland teas as a child, to bars full of friends as a twenty something, to lovely intimate dinners with girlfriends I have had some very wonderful birthday celebrations. However, none of my own birthday celebrations could ever top the feeling of my baby girl turing 1! I woke up giddy with excitement on April 27th and snatched Hermione from her nursery so we could start playing!

The Hardest Month- A Nursing Story

The four weeks immediately following Hermione’s birth were some of the most physically and emotionally draining I have ever been through. This is a story I have wanted to tell and now, a year later I finally feel ready to revisit what was an incredibly difficult time for me.

Food Rut

Food Rut

I am embarrassed to admit this. I ordered take out last night. In fact, we have ordered takeout or picked up dinner to go the majority of nights the past few weeks. To say I have been in a cooking rut is the understatement of the year. The past few months have been so busy between Hermione, several large work projects (stay tuned for details) and some major apartment redesigning that cooking has fallen by the wayside. By the time I put Hermione to bed at night I am so exhausted I can’t even begin to think about making dinner. Add to this my beloved Sun In Bloom opening a takeout spot down the street and you can see why I have not been cooking as much as I would like.

The Most Magical Year

April 28, 2014

Yesterday Hermione turned 1! I can hardly believe it. The past year has been nothing short of magical. Watching her grow and change every second of every day has been an amazing gift. I love this little girl so much that even thinking about her makes my heart swell and tears well in my eyes. I can barely remember life without her. She brings so much love and joy to each and every day. Doug and I are incredibly blessed to be her parents.
