We took Baby Ever away for our first family trip over Labor Day weekend!!  We spent two nights in the most charming cottage right on a river in the Santa Ynez Valley surrounded by vines, wide open fields and wildlife.  It was lovely.  We brought the little guy to his first wine tasting at Demetria ...


Best Ob/Gyn in LA: Dr. Sara Klevens!

By |September 9th, 2013|UNCATEGORIZED|

We have known our Ob/Gyn for years-- we went to Princeton with Dr. Sara Klevens, or Klevens, as we affectionately call her.  Some people think that's weird to have your friend be the doctor in charge of your nethers, but it is actually the best-- we speak incredibly frankly and there is no question too ...

By |August 28th, 2013|UNCATEGORIZED|

The little man is actually 5 whole weeks old as of yesterday!!  But these pictures were taken last week on his one month birthday.  His favorite activities include eating and sleeping.  And although he is tiny, he is mighty-- those little legs pack quite a punch and those mini hands can pull some serious hair.  ...

Soaking up the San Ysidro Ranch!  I'm wearing a Susana Monaco dress and Jean Michel Cazabat wedges.

By |July 1st, 2013|UNCATEGORIZED|

Paiche is a Peruvian meets Japanese delight that just popped up in Marina del Rey, an area desperately in need of some new and inspired restaurants.  And Paiche gets high marks not just for filling the void, but the small plates are delicious and frankly our favorite way of eating-- getting to sample lots of different ...
