But it’s probably just because I’ve been out to the desert a zillion times, love it, and have […]

I’m going to tell you straight up. It’s when you have seven-month-old twins, and you’re getting on a plane for a getaway without them for the first time since they were born.

Looking and feeling hot and sexy as a new mom would make for a few less things to worry about during that emotional, exhausted, insane first few weeks. And I want that for you. […]

Here’s the Best Baby Carrier for Travel (From a Twin Babywearing Skeptic) http://homebodyinmotion.com/best-baby-carrier-for-travel/ http://homebodyinmotion.com/best-baby-carrier-for-travel/#comments Sat, 24 Jan 2015 22:01:25 +0000 http://homebodyinmotion.com/?p=1820 Of all the variances between expectation and reality so far in motherhood, babywearing twins has to top the list. I am literally laughing at myself (not with myself) when I recall the visions I had about how this would go: I’d just “pop” one baby on the front and one baby on the back and […]

At Long Last! The Hollywood Sign Trail Reopens http://homebodyinmotion.com/hollywood-sign-trail-reopens/ http://homebodyinmotion.com/hollywood-sign-trail-reopens/#comments Thu, 08 Jan 2015 22:48:42 +0000 http://homebodyinmotion.com/?p=1813 My very favorite hike in Los Angeles is the Hollywood Sign trail. It’s a little jewel box of an outing in so many ways: It’s got epic views (obvi) with appeal for locals and out-of-towners alike. It strikes the right balance between challenging and still chat-friendly in terms of difficulty. And it’s right in the […]

We’re just back from a couple of nights in the desert that felt entirely new, although we have been there so many dozens of times, […]

Happy Hanukkah! (And the Gifts I’m Getting for the Twins Slash Myself) http://homebodyinmotion.com/hanukkah-gifts/ http://homebodyinmotion.com/hanukkah-gifts/#comments Thu, 18 Dec 2014 22:05:10 +0000 http://homebodyinmotion.com/?p=1777 It’s babies’ first Hanukkah around here this week, and I’m feeling very jolly. First of all, it’s been a week of nonstop holiday parties, both of the family-friendly and heavy-boozing varieties.
