it was a wonderful week in the adirondacks. i hope you don’t mind me sharing some more photos from our time there last week. i feel really fortunate that at times we get to take special trips “for work,” especially when they often don’t ever really feel like work at all and we just get to have an incredible time together....Read more
a major highlight for all five of us this week was getting to spend time with these gorgeous horses up at a ranch in the adirondacks. especially when the kids got to wear tiny cowboy hats that look straight out of the movie toy story! eleanor has actually worn hers pretty much all day every day since!...Read more
one of our favorite days in bermuda was the one where we got to go to the bermuda aquarium, museum and zoo where we had the very best experience the year before learning all about the different animals and fish and sea creatures that live in bermuda. we also love seeing the way the aquarium helps to rescue so many animals who are hurt or suffering and help them get back to full health before returning them to their homes, like the sea turtle you see in these photos above and below!...Read more
i know i shared some photos from our day at the beach and our day boating around bermuda, but here are a bajillion more from the rest of our week on the island! believe it or not, i wasn’t able to fit in all the photos from our time at the aquarium (which is seriously one of our favorite things about bermuda), so there will be another post coming!...Read more
during our first morning in bermuda, we took a boat out just like we did last year. it was a highlight of our trip last time around, and one of the things we were most looking forward to on this return trip!
tom, our tour guide, is seriously the nicest guy. he is the owner of the boat touring company called jet ski bermuda and he was the one who took us out on the water last year as well. he kindly spent several hours past our timeframe this trip with us on the water because he is so nice and we were having so much fun we lost track of how long we’d been out!...Read more
we have been in bermuda the past few days and can’t get enough of these gorgeous beaches and insane water colors! ever since our trip here last summer, this place climbed the list of our favorite places so quickly and we started talking about our return trip and how much we had to come back the minute we got back last summer!...Read more
this week as i finished putting together this little video from our time in england, my heart just felt so heavy and i wasn’t sure if i should even go through with sharing the video on here at all. it’s footage of our favorite and happiest moments as a family experiencing and enjoying a city that is going through a lot of hurt and heartbreak right now....Read more
it’s no secret that we love to travel and explore and have adventures together as a family. we definitely don’t have all the answers when it comes to how to travel smoothly with little ones, but i have rounded up a lot of answers to some of our most frequently asked questions when it comes to traveling with kids (especially abroad) below!...Read more
i know i have already recapped our trip to england, but i didn’t share any photos yet from our day in warwick england because i wanted to make this video to share along with the photos! josh and i were finally able to sit down and put it together last night. one of our favorite adventures together for sure!...Read more
sharing more today from our trip to london last week! here’s the first post from our trip, if you missed it! in this post, there are photos from a few of our favorite spots we ate together, getting to see old friends from our DC days who moved to london shortly after we moved back to new york, an epic morning at the science museum (that museum was so so good!) and lots of random moments and photos from all over the area (i think we played at every playground london has to offer!...Read more
so excited to share photos from the last part of our spring break trip, our time in london, england! that city was such a fun one for our family, we felt like there were endless things to do with the kids, and none of us has stopped talking about it since we’ve returned home to nyc....Read more
spending time at this trout farm was probably one of our favorite experiences of our trip! the farm was of course just beautiful, and we ended up hanging out and being there much longer than we originally anticipated since the grounds were so pretty and they had a fun little playground as well that the kids just loved....Read more
probably my favorite part of exploring the cotswolds was our afternoon visiting the slaughters. i was so confused as we began our planning and josh kept talking about the slaughters. i was like, what even is a place with a name like that?! but apparently, the village gets its name from the old english term for “muddy” or “wet land” which is “slothre,” thus, the slaughters....Read more
i’m sharing some photos today from our time in the english countryside, specifically when we passed through turville and oxford. it’s a photo overload, because everywhere we looked was so picturesque, it felt like we were walking into a fairy tale. i love how everyone uses great detail in keeping their gardens and homes in beautiful shape, which of course just adds to the charm....Read more
we had such a wonderful easter holiday yesterday here in london! i had a few minutes this morning to get a bunch of our easter pictures from the day ready for the blog, so here they are! we went to church, ate a lot of good food, a lot of yummy treats (#maitrechoux for the win!) and were able to see some old dear friends as well....Read more
after our time spent at the mosque in casablanca, we had one of our favorite meals ever at a place josh found called la sqala. i think half the credit of calling it our favorite meal goes to the delicious food and also the great service, and the other reason why it was a favorite was because we had such a fun time around the table together before, during and after our meal....Read more
our family spent 24 hours in casablanca, morocco, to start off our spring break trip! originally, when we first bought our tickets for this trip, we had planned to spend a much longer time exploring more cities and areas of morocco, but we switched up our itinerary a few weeks back to have more time in the country side of england....Read more
if you missed the first part of our 48 hours girls trip to paris, you can find that post here. today i am sharing the rest of the photos i snapped and other things we saw and did and ate, if you’re interested!
my friend mary martha took this jumping picture of me in front of the arc de triomphe and she timed it so well with the traffic to make sure no cars were behind me....Read more
i am still on such a high from getting to spend the weekend with girlfriends in paris! you might have caught a lot of the trip through my videos on instagram stories, but now that i am home, i have a billion photos and stories i want to share as well! we were able to pack in so much in just 48 hours, but it never felt rushed or crammed, as we just wandered around and got lost on the most beautiful streets or inside the most incredible shops. ...Read more
no matter how much we love new york city, sometimes it just feels really good to get out of the city. we woke up on saturday morning and were like, “let’s get out of here” and i literally started throwing an extra pair of clothes for everyone into a duffle bag while josh ran around the corner and rented a car....Read more
we just returned home from a quick few days in palm springs california! we flew straight there after our time in utah since eleanor was still on winter break from school and sunshine is never a bad idea (although looks like nyc was crazy warm in our absence with a cold front coming in as we return....Read more
sometimes i forget that all of us have the same coat in different colors until a stranger points it out on the street and is all, “did you know you’re matching?!” haha! i am part embarrassed, part proud when this happens. ;) we ventured into park city yesterday to ride the alpine coaster (and did so JUST before the rain/hail/snow storm hit!...Read more
we’ve been in utah over the weekend spending time with family and also getting the kids (and me!) more comfortable on the mountain with their snowboards! i’m not sure if you follow along on my instagram, but i shared a few videos over there on my insta stories of the kids in action!
this was conrad’s first time on the slopes, and he loved it!...Read more
i have so many photos to share from our trip to boston! we had a wonderful time, and i’m so glad we finally went. i had never been before, despite all these years of living on the east coast and always hearing the best things about the place. but everything aligned last weekend with a few days off from school for eleanor and with old friends now living in boston, so we decided it was the perfect time to go, especially with all the fall foliage basically at its peak right now (the drive alone was insane, it’s so colorful out right now.)
we drove up on saturday and hit a big rain storm, which didn’t stop pouring until the early hours of monday morning!...Read more
if you’ve been following along on my twitter or my instagram, you saw that i got to spend some time at the white house kitchen garden yesterday and that today i have the honor of chatting with the first lady, michelle obama, all about her let’s move initiative! it’s been tricky containing my excitement and i’m so excited to share more about today once it ends. ...Read more
hi everyone! we drove down to DC yesterday to spend the next couple of days together since there is no school for the kids right now and something exciting is taking place here. i can’t wait to share more with you all soon!
after several hours in the car from the drive down, we stopped by the lincoln memorial (it’s my absolute favorite) to stretch our legs (more like get all the wiggles out!) and “try” to talk the kids about the significance of the monument and area in general before heading to meet friends....Read more
before our time in victoria, we spent a quick weekend in whistler, british columbia, canada. and the entire time, we were like, wow this place is crazy beautiful. i’m so glad we detoured there for a couple days to see it! i actually didn’t take the camera out too much during our weekend, and we kept it pretty low key as we adjusted to the time change, but i did bring it with us when we visited alta lake one day and i’m glad i did because i love these photos (and the video too) a lot. we spent most of the day right beside the water, and the kids couldn’t get enough of the little fish swimming around and tried to catch a few in their buckets and give them names before releasing them again into the water....Read more
i’m really excited to share some photos and a video we made from our time in victoria canada a few weeks ago! we have absolutely loved the chance we’ve gotten to explore some of the most beautiful places this past year as we’ve partnered with fairmont hotels and resorts. traveling with little ones is not the easiest, but i wouldn’t trade the memories and experiences we’ve been able to create together while doing so for anything....Read more
wanted to share some photos from portovenere, which is the port town we stayed in near cinque terre. first, we had my favorite gelato this trip here at a place called bar lamia. i don’t know how josh stayed strong and didn’t partake in any gelato this trip but you guys don’t have to worry, i definitely made up for him not having any by pretty much having two a day....Read more
well, it took a minute, but i finally have (way too many!) photos to share with you from the final portion of our time in europe last month, when we were in portofino and also portovenre, italy.
this batch of photos is from our time in portofino! i also have a lot of video footage that i need to finish editing, so it should make its way to my youtube channel later this week so be on the look out over there!...Read more
