Favorite Posts

After nearly 10 years of blogging, it’s difficult to pick favorites. But if you’re new here, a few to begin, in each category…


The archives are full of travelogues. I made a best-of destination list in this post.

My favorite activities to entertain kids on the road.

What to do with a summer week in Lake Tahoe (and a link to our cabin on AirBnB)

And for fun, my first time in a mud bath. Think: Hans Solo.

Home & Design

I love looking back at the “Our home tour” posts: Living RoomBedrooms, and Backyard.

This round up of the best Ikea Hacks for Built-ins is one of the most popular posts of all time.

I get nostalgic when coming across posts featuring our New York Studio or Hudson’s mini crib.

And I’m partial to this post about Julia Child, introducing the Work We Do series, as it talks a bit about my career path.


I’m partial to the most personal posts, like all of the birthday updates (like Hudson at one year), the looks back on our holidays, or thoughts on having two kids, two months in.

Advice for traveling with kids.

I actually still use my own Kiddo gift guides for birthday ideas.

“Weigh This: What are you most proud of?” is one of my favorite conversations.

As is the one that took place just after the 2016 election.

Food & Drink

These perfect soft-cooked eggs changed my life forever!

French yogurt cake is something kids can make on their own (with printable recipe cards), and it’s so good.

Everyone loves a really good cheese board.

This take on the Yule Log Cake is officially one of our holiday traditions now (and was featured in Sunset Magazine!)

This post on Meal-train etiquette (and starting a meal train) remains one of my most popular.


I wear joggers on just about every trip!

Hearing everyone’s “good for you, not for me” fashion item was really interesting!

Finding a signature look.

A recipe for good skin. 

Many of my favorite posts in this category are actually the brand collaborations. For example, it’s how I came to love Elizabeth Suzann and Mollusk!
