My blog was hacked.

    My dear readers,

    My blog has been hacked, and someone is still messing with the blog coding. I wanted to let you know that I didn't write the "happy new year" post (which I've now deleted). If you see any posts over the next couple days that don't sound like me, they probably weren't written by me.

    I'm figuring things out as quickly as I can; please hang in there with me!

    Love, Joanna
    P.S. Meanwhile, Toby and I traveled for 14+ hours today, including a scary emergency airplane landing in New Orleans. Acks, what a day!!

    Update: Things seem to be back on track, whew! Thanks for your sweet comments!Source URL:

    Because of the crazy east coast snowstorms, our flight to New York yesterday was cancelled, so we're in L.A. for three more days. Hope everyone with travel plans is doing OK! What chaos! xoxo

Merry Christmas!

    Wishing you a very Merry Christmas from (sunny!) Palm Springs. I can't wait to catch up next week, and I wanted to say a big thank-you for everything this year. It has been a pleasure having you here, and I feel so grateful and lucky to have such wonderful readers. Hope you have a fabulous holiday. Love, Joanna (and Alex and Toby) P.S. Where are you spending Christmas this year? It's so funny to have a warm California Christmas after growing up in Michigan!Source URL:

Chopping onions

    Here's a little trick for when you're cooking dinner this holiday: To keep your eyes from stinging while you're chopping onions, put a piece of bread in your mouth and let it hang out. Apparently, it really works! Who would have thought?

Hello from California

    Hope you had great weekend! We're now in California, and the trip out here was a million times easier than I had expected. Toby was super mellow on the plane and slept in our arms most of the way. He only freaked out at the very end, during the drive from the airport to the hotel. Whew! The weather here is grey and rainy (just an observation:), but we l-o-v-e our hotel, which is cozy and comfy, and it's just nice to have time to chill. Here's a photo of Toby hanging with us in a cheesy-but-fun Mexican restaurant at the end of the Santa Monica pier. Kisses to you all, and thanks for your sweet encouragement about the flight! xoxoxoSource URL:

Have a fun weekend!

    My darlings, what are your plans for the weekend? Alex, Toby and I are heading to California tonight! (It will be Toby's first plane ride, eeps! Wish us luck!) We'll be staying in L.A. for a few days, just the three of us. Then we're meeting Alex's family in Palm Springs, where his brother is getting married! They're having a Buddhist ceremony, which I'm excited to see. What are your plans for the holidays? Are you heading home or elsewhere? Have a wonderful weekend, and meanwhile, here are a few fun posts from around the web... xoxo

    LOVE this vintage wool bag.

    Salad + pizza = salad pizza. YUM.

    No way! Patrick Dempsey was on the cover of a J. Crew catalog!

    Beautiful tie-the-knot engagement ring.

    How adorable that she wore her glasses.

    Crikey. I will never, ever do this.

    Winter street style.

    Isn't this dress pretty? It looks like it's painted.

    Cool business cards.

    The Hovey sisters just went to Paris! Here are their fab photos.

    Surprisingly touching.

    Don't you secretly want to try this sip n' swirl straw yourself? :)

    And for your last-minute holiday gifts...

Baby and kids editor

    My sweets, I'm excited to share a little side project: I'm the new baby & kids editor at Beso, a fabulous product discovery site. Every month, I'll be doing round-ups of my favorite children's clothes, toys and products. So far, I've scouted winter gear and holiday gifts, and next up is cute maternity wear. Hopefully it will be helpful to fellow mamas out there! xoxoSource URL:

A little challenge

    Last week, the lovely Chelsea said she "made a pact not to complain for a week." Inspired, I decided to do the same. It has been surprisingly awesome. When I get the urge to mention to Alex how sleepy I am or how our upstairs neighbors seem to be dropping bowling balls on the floor (seriously:), I just keep my mouth shut, and we end up having much more sparkling conversations instead (which we might not have had otherwise). And a funny note: When you don't complain about something, you weirdly forget about it two seconds later! It has been surprisingly liberating and has made me feel light and cheery.

    So, thank you, Chelsea! Great idea!

    Do you guys want to join in the pact? :)
