Farewell, friends

by Ashley on November 28, 2011

Or, rather, see you soon! I’ve decided it’s time to say goodbye to Baby Mine and bring some of its family-focus over to Hither & Thither. Now that Hudson is here, exploring the city and beyond with us, it’s hard to know which personal stories belong where. And then, let’s be honest, there’s the matter […]

Packing List

by Ashley on October 7, 2011

We’re packing up for a family road trip. We leave tomorrow morning for the Berkshires; we’ll be staying in Lenox. Hudson has been able to fall asleep on our last two car rides, so I’m crossing my fingers for some peaceful drives through displays of colorful leaves. I’ve been composing and editing a packing list […]

First flight

by Ashley on September 16, 2011

Today is a big day… today we head to the airport and board a flight to California. It will be the first of many flights for Hudson and I’m glad we’re starting early, but I’d be lying if I said we weren’t nervous. The fear of nonstop crying (unlikely) and being the object of fellow […]

Crewcuts Vacation Shop

by Ashley on September 13, 2011

I spotted these starry luggage pieces–a rolling overnight case and a boxy train case–on Fifth Avenue in the JCrew kids’ department.  I want them for myself! (And maybe this and this, too.)

Baby wear

by Ashley on August 19, 2011

I’ve been spending a lot of time wearing Hudson in his Sakura Bloom ring sling. He loves it! Provided he’s not hungry or sporting a heavy diaper, he will grow calm or fall asleep almost the instant I put him in it. I often still push his stroller along with me–having not quite mastered the […]

Last hurrah

by Ashley on June 14, 2011

We’re headed off today for our very last getaway before the baby arrives and “just-us-two” becomes “just-us-three!” (Although I think the real “babymoon” will come after he arrives–I can’t imagine anything more worthy of celebrating!) A friend’s mom has lent us her cottage in Cape Cod as a congratulatory gift and we are both beyond […]

Traveling while pregnant

by Ashley on April 27, 2011

Those who know Aron and I from Hither and Thither know that we love to travel. We’ve actually been incredibly lucky to have taken three trips since the start of my pregnancy, and there’s one more to come. But I can’t say that choosing good destinations when you’re expecting is easy. Even as I write […]

Welcome to baby mine!

by Ashley on March 28, 2011

Aron and I started Hither and Thither, a travel and lifestyle blog about our lives in New York (and elsewhere) a few years ago. Now, as we anticipate our first baby,  I decided I wanted a separate space for baby and kiddo-related things: to share thoughts on pregnancy and parenting, indulge shopping and design interests, […]
