Chit Chat

We’re home, friends! While we had a wonderful time up in the big (BIG!) city, as we flew over the lush, green Appalachian mountains yesterday afternoon on our descent back into Asheville, I felt my shoulders begin to loosen up, my breathing relax, and my heart soar. There truly is no place like home.

That said, we had a fabulous trip. Along with some family time spent in N.J. (Homemade sourdough bread! Pancakes and coffee and grouchy waitresses at an old school diner! A visit to a pumpkin & apple orchard! Hay rides! Babar toys and books from an aunt for Huxley!), we also had a great (albeit brief) time in Brooklyn.

On Monday, we piled into a cab and took a jaunt out to Roberta’s (AMAZING pizza, and this little delicata squash salad that is truly to die for!) to meet up with Grace from Design Sponge. She was hosting her After the Jump radio show (which I truly, truly love) on Heritage Radio and had invited Hubs, Huxley and I to sit down with her for a chat. You can listen to our talk for free (which was so much fun!) here and here.

Thanks, Grace, for having us, and thanks to Heritage Radio for making such a wonderful resource available!

I’ve also got a post up on Verve this month. I’m chatting about letting go and surrendering, especially when it comes to birth, babies, and beyond!
