I’ve started a bad habit that’s going to take some work to kick: dessert for dinner. Or more accurately, dessert that spoils my appetite for dinner. I don’t actually get around to having a square breakfast or lunch (often snacking on sweets then, too) and come 3 or 4 in the afternoon, I reach for [...]
Alyson of Unruly Things asked me to guest post while she’s on maternity leave. (Have you seen her new little man, Wolf? Adorable!) I picked out a cute outfit that would meet my requirements for nursing-friendly wear–but which I’d happily wear anytime. Stop by and check it out! And while on the subject of good [...]
Over dinner last week, an expectant friend and I were lamenting that we would be setting aside the pleasure of sipping beer on hot days this summer. So for the sake of summer barbecues and pregnant women, Aron and I did our best to judge some commonly found non-alcoholic beers. The contenders: Kaliber (Ireland, from [...]

Ever since Sweet Paul’s special For Kids Issue came out, I’ve been thinking about trying out the recipe for Mint Chocolate Chip frozen yogurt. Making ice cream (or frozen yogurt) is super simple with the right [...]
Aron and I started Hither and Thither, a travel and lifestyle blog about our lives in New York (and elsewhere) a few years ago.
