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 ...

Holly Morrow’s Babymoon in Sedona, Arizona! Delightful desert decadence.

By |August 21st, 2013|UNCATEGORIZED|

In trying to pick somewhere to go for our “babymoon” I had to think hard about a place where booze wouldn’t tempt me. Wine country – out.
