THIS IS MY HOSPITAL BAG

Months before Finn was born, I had my labor plan written and my hospital bag packed. I was taking birthing classes and listening to hypnobirthing CDs. I bought anything that anyone suggested and ignored anyone […]

I have a not-so-secret desire to live in a Scandi country. When I reviewed foreign films, my favorites were from Denmark, Norway, and Sweden. I dig the way those people live (and raise their kids).

SMOKED BLUEFISH PÂTÉ

New England residents are spoiled by an abundance of fresh seafood, so it’s no surprise that some of the best seafood restaurants are located here. The Straight Wharf Restaurant on Nantucket is one such restaurant. […]
