Children often see the world in cool ways, and I love hearing their pearls of wisdom. So! At bedtime last night, I asked my own kids — Toby, 11, and Anton, 8 — to reveal their pro tips… 1. What’s a good breakfast?Toby: Toast with butter is always satisfying.Anton: Frosted Mini Wheats plus Kashi Cinnamon Harvest.

You’ve probably heard the phrase “Grief is love with nowhere to go.” One minute, our person is here, and the next they’re just…gone. But the love, passion, anger, sadness, and everything else that make a relationship dynamic still exist. Know that the relationship changes but lives on. If you’re in the early days of grief,

What clothes do your kids (or the kids you love) knock around in all summer? Over the years, we’ve found some great mix-and-match basics for wearing everywhere and while traveling, and I’m curious to hear yours… What run-around clothes do you swear by? It’s funny because I see my kids wearing the clothes above in

On date nights, I usually throw on a sweater and lipstick. But the other day, my friend Gemma texted me this photo of her look, as she headed out to dinner with her husband. How gorgeous is she? And how fun does it sound, after these intense couple years, to smudge on eyeliner and spritz

I’ve always been an obsessive, stay-up-too-late, crush-on-favorite-characters type of reader. When I was little, I believed in Peter Pan. I knew — really knew — that he would come to my window. Throughout elementary school, at bedtime, I even made my parents call me “Wendy” (and my poor twin sister “John”). Books made magic almost

After years of documenting my design projects on the internet for the world to watch, criticize, and hopefully enjoy, in 2018 I found myself once again crying in the shower. We are renovating an old farmhouse in Oregon, and I was extremely frustrated with our renovation process. I was so sick of feeling dumb, being

If I had a recipe hall of fame, this one would be the first inductee… I first wrote about smashed peas with mint, a classic spring pairing, in 2010, after my friend Todd served it to me in dip form alongside a bowl of pita chips. I have since deconstructed the dip — lightly fork-mashing

How have you been sleeping lately? We just switched from our cozy winter sheets to our crisp summer sheets, and it feels so good. (Nothing better than climbing into clean sheets, especially after shaving your legs.) Brooklinen, the wonderful bedding brand that we’ve loved and used in our home for almost a decade, is currently
