momfilter did a lovely interview with us that's on their site today. Stop by and read it if you have a chance. It's a little bit different than what you usually see about us, because it's focused more on an overview of our life - something I tend to skip over in my attempt to chase Q around with a camera!
Momfilter is a new discovery for me, and I have been a little bit obsessed with it for the past week or so. Between the food column with its easy and elegant meals for busy families, the very addictive "mom uniform" column featuring the favorite styles of people like Loeffler Randall's Jessie Randall, fashion photographer Mei Tao, and editor/stylist Lucy Sykes, and its stories on travel and parenting (from both mom's and dad's perspective), I just can't stop reading.
I was introduced to Yolanda by my good friend Jane D'Haene (of Anais & I, you will have seen her clothes on Q quite frequently), and when I took my first look at momfilter, I couldn't believe I hadn't yet discovered it. The fact is, I don't read parenting sites or magazines as much as I read mommy blogs. But momfilter has that perfect alchemical combination of fascinating elements and ineffable style that make it irresistible to someone like me. And it's really no surprise, since momfilter creators Yolanda Edwards and Pilar Guzman were the team behind the late and much lamented Cookie magazine. Do you remember Cookie? Cookie was a touchstone for me when I was first contemplating parenthood, and I was a subscriber right up to the end. So it just feels right to have discovered momfilter now, in the thick of motherhood.
Oh, and if you watch closely, you might see a favorite family recipe from my husband pop up in the momfilter food section one of these days! I don't often talk about our meals at home, but my husband was for many years the culinary director at Sato (The Vail Valley's favorite sushi and Asian fusion restaurant) and sous chef for Denver's Opera House restaurant before he gave up the restaurant business in favor of parenting, and he is a superb cook! Lucky us ;)
