Active Tar Pits in the middle of the city
The La Brea Tar Pits are located in the heart of the Miracle Mile district in Los Angeles, right next to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Pavilion for Japanese Art. Long before this time, 11,000 years ago precisely, Los Angeles was bustling with wildlife instead of cars and people. Many of ...

Wave Hill -- a public garden and cultural center
We're lucky in New York to have a number of lovely botanical gardens to visit. We often stop by one of our favorites, Brooklyn Botanic Garden, as it's closest to our home, but this past weekend we decided to do something a bit different and traveled to the Riverdale neighborhood of the Bronx to visit ...

Hua Mei Bird Garden
Our weekend mornings often start earlier than we, as the parents of the household, would like, but we try to make the most of them by getting outside. We frequently head on foot or by subway to nearby Chinatown and the Lower East Side, where we can watch the quieted city wake and start its day. Typically, we stop by a ...

NEW YORK CITY GUIDE
Fort Tryon Park and The Met Cloisters
By the time you travel to the far reaches of Upper Manhattan you've left the frenetic pace of most of the city behind. Here the topography changes, and you find yourself high above the Hudson River, with room to spread out and views for miles. It's here that you'll find beautiful Fort Tryon Park, and tucked inside ...

Jardin des Plantes
Paris can get pretty wet and cold in the winter and sometimes it is nice to be able to seek refuge inside. One of our favourite city adventures in the winter time is a visit to the Jardin des Plantes. It is one of Paris' largest parks (which does not mean a lot ;)) and also ...

Brooklyn Botanic Garden
Spring in New York always feels like a small miracle, and watching the city shrug off the monotone grays of winter as it assumes the riotous colors of spring never gets old. Most any park or tree-lined street will do for soaking up the beauty of the budding season, but for a full immersion a ...

Community Gardens
Tucked into vacant lots and unused corners of the city, New York's Community Gardens can feel like a real discovery when you happen upon them. Two months ago we exited the subway at 2nd Avenue on our way to brunch and came face-to-face with the Liz Christy Community Garden. How I've missed it all these ...

Gardening time!
This weekend we had such a treat: one day without rain and even (yes!) a few rays of sunshine!! Hurray for May! Seriously, the weather has been so lousy here in Amsterdam, we're in much need of sun. Anyway, we decided it was time to spend a day in our little garden to plant all ...

Nasturtiums -- a gardeners dream!
In Dutch we call them 'East Indian Cress' -- my favourite plant in our garden! I love the pretty round leaves of the nasturtiums, I love how wild and crazy (and easy!) they grow, and I love the beautiful, tissue-paper-like flowers, with their bright, happy colours. Both the leaves and the flowers of the nasturtium ...

Yesterday we finally decorated them, and it was easy and such fun! My creative daughter insisted on adding a ...

How sometimes a seemingly small transition can make an enormous emotional input... Is your family complete? Shannon is ‘very nearly certain’ her family is complete with two children, and was surprisingly weepy when she moved her 2 year old baby from his crib to a cot bed this weekend. Her baby not a baby anymore — such a bittersweet moment! Sounds familiar? Have there been little changes or transitions that surprised you with their emotional intensity? Please share! @slcorlis #babyccinokids #babyccinoparenting

What is ‘normal’ in your society? Read more thoughts from @laralovesparis on the topic (she is pregnant with a little boy, and decided to keep the name a secret!) #babyccinokids

The story of the beautiful brand @wunderlang is such a wonderful one. Founder Andrea Lang is SO mindful and SO respectful towards everything life has to offer: ‘I made it my mission to source garments made from natural fibers, which were no longer wearable due to tears or flaws. I set about deconstructing them and making them into children’s clothes. Effectively saving them from the landfill.’ Head over to our blog to read Andrea’s humbling answers to our 5 questions, and get inspired! #reuse #consciousfashion #wunderlang #babyccinokids #babyccinoboutiques #babyccinointerviews
