Elephant bean bag

How cute would this Italian elephant bean bag look in a child's room or reading nook? It has such a sweet face!

What are you up to this weekend? New York has been snowy and grey this week. (This song is on my mind.) But the good news is that daylight savings is this Sunday, March 10th. We can make it! Also, thanks for being so sweet about the new baby. It’s such a pleasure to share everything with you. Hope you have a great weekend, and here are a few fun posts from around the web...

I had lunch this week with Gretchen Rubin, the author of The Happiness Project. She's just as awesome in person!

A woman woke up in the hospital with short-term memory loss. Her best friend wrote this letter to help her out.

Spite houses are bizarre!

Blood orange margaritas.

These shoes are officially on my wishlist.

Pippa Middleton wrote a book! Will you read it?

How to be alone together.

Food pairings.

It's the time of year for this beauty treatment, don't you agree?

Lovely bookshelves.

A San Francisco bridge gets a makeover.

Cute jacket for spring.

Leo Babauta's beautiful advice to his children.

I posted about goats yelling like humans, but what about humans yelling like goats yelling like humans? Can't stop laughing...

New Yorkers, tickets are on sale for this awesome grilled cheese competition.

If you're pinching pennies, my friend just launched a coupon website: Robot Oatmeal.

Have a good one. xoxo

Brilliant speech

Ash Beckham recently spoke in Boulder about not using the word "gay" pejoratively (as in, "This homework assignment is so gay"). The video is fantastic and definitely worth watching.

(Thanks, Lucy!)

On this dreary winter day, imagine: You're getting on a plane tonight for a week in northern Italy, hiking along the steep cliffs and rocky beaches. You'll have crisp white wine and fried fish for dinner. Here's a daydreamy outfit to pack...


1. Red cardigan for a pop of color.
2. Easy linen dress for wearing to the beach and dinner.
3. Buttery soft tote.
4. Large watch for that tomboyish look.
5. Trusty umbrella.
6. Sexy sandals (or this more comfortable pair).
7. Polka-dot bikini.
8. Rolled jean shorts for showing off tanned legs.

What do you pack for vacations? Where would you go, if you could go anywhere today? Winter is getting old!!!

P.S. A genius honeymoon trick, and Parisian wedges.

This week the New York Times ran a brave and beautiful remembrance of Nora Ephron by her son Jacob Bernstein. It must have been really hard to write. One wonderful passage–of many—was...Read More >

Since last summer, we've been trying our best to move from the West Village to Brooklyn, but the market is getting craaazy. There are so few Brooklyn apartments available that people are going nuts for them. (At a recent open house that our friends attended, 375 people had lined up around the block!) As you'd expect, prices have skyrocketed as a result. After much discussion, Alex and I have decided that we might stay in our tiny apartment for another year and see what happens after that.

Nevertheless, I can't stop daydreaming about creating a real, long-term home for our family. Right now, we feel a little bit in limbo, and it will be nice to be in a place where we can feel settled (and hopefully won't have as many mice).

One cool decorating idea that has caught my eye recently is having a low bed. Have you ever slept in one? The last time we rented an apartment on vacation, the bedroom had a low bed, and for some reason it was incredibly cozy and comfortable to be so close to the floor.

Here are 11 inspiration photos...
