We’re snowed in and I’m enjoying the quiet day. My husband already took the girls out to play in the snowfall and now the three of them are watching The Wizard of Oz. I’m tempted to watch White Christmas later; the snow is really coming down! I’m resigning myself to winter today, though, that hasn’t stopped me from contemplating straw hats and gardening gloves. While I patiently wait for another spring day, here are a few links that I’ve enjoyed the past couple of weeks.

It’s been awhile since I attempted the fun art of brewing kombucha. I’ll be keeping this advice in mind next time I do.

I’ve been using the front pocket of my Ergo as a wallet for over a year, but now that my daughter doesn’t spend much time being carried, I’m considering a new purse. My friend, Kate, has one of these beauties and I think I’m going to have to save up.

Breakfast inspiration!

A detailed guide to traveling while pregnant, something I hope to never do again, but maybe you do and maybe these tips will help. + beautiful pictures of Japan.

Practical tips for traveling with children. We’re making plans to get out and about as a family soon and it was heartening to read this.

When I’m in a cooking rut and need to make dinner for my family, I often turn to Jenny at Dinner: A Love Story. This week, I tried this one-pan, three-dish meal. Asparagus, chicken, potatoes. Simple, wholesome food.

Thoughts on including both parents in the conversation about parenthood. This made complete sense to me, when thinking about my personal experience of parenting with my husband.

I recently checked out The Forest Feast for Kids from the library and it is now on my list for my daughter’s birthday. It is such a beautiful cookbook for children, with delicious and doable recipes. I would have loved it as a child.

The article on parenting made a few points that I agree with (my husband didn’t “babysit” – I didn’t hire him to care for our children!) but I’m traditional and fully believe moms should be home with their little ones when at all possible. When my youngest left for college, I assumed I needed to get a job but nobody seemed to appreciate that I hadn’t lost my administrative assistant skills. So, here I am, still at home and loving it. I emotional and logistically support my family and manage to stay busy. No soap operas and bon bons for me!
