In two and a half weeks, I am moving to California. That’s not a joke or an exaggeration (although it is temporary; I’ll explain), and to say I’m feeling overwhelmed – because this is something we decided only a few days ago – would be the understatement of the century. Here’s what’s happening: Kendrick was offered a summer internship in San Jose (just south of ... Read More »

Introducing: Ramshackle Glam for Allure Insiders


So here it is – a quick intro to a little project I’ve had in the works for the past couple of months. Did I say “little”? I think what I mean is… ALLURE. !!!!

Three screenings of Planes (for real; I think someone was excited about flying), one waffle, one banana, one cup of blueberries, one cup of pasta, one cup of cereal, one cup of dried green beans, two applesauces, three crackers, one yogurt parfait, and one McDonald’s egg-and-cheese biscuit later (what can I say? the child can eat), and we’re in San Francisco!

When Is The Right Time, Part Deux


A few days ago, shortly after I made our announcement, I got an email from someone who said that I was “crazy” for having another baby now, with a husband who’s in business school in another state.
