Hither & Thither is a lifestyle and travel blog I write from my home in California. Since it was created, nearly six years ago, Hither & Thither has grown to feature family, food, design, style, New York and California and everything (and everywhere) in between. I hope you’ll stay and look around—and join the conversation!
My husband Aron and I met as undergraduates at UC Davis, and pursued our graduate and professional studies together in Los Angeles; five years later, weeks after our wedding, we moved across the country to Manhattan. There, while Aron completed his Urologic Surgery residency at NYU and I worked as a book editor at a publishing house, we wrote Hither & Thither together about our adventures (that often felt as exotic as any) in a city we had come to love. In July of 2011, we welcomed our son Hudson into our 500-square-foot studio.
The following year, we flew literally around the world (stopping to stay in Bali for one month) before relocating to Northern California, to the very same university town of Davis where we first met and fell in love. Aron is a practicing Urologist and I am a freelance writer, blogger, and stay-at-home parent. And we’re both learning to appreciate our new home with fresh eyes.
Hudson (and our very affectionate cocker spaniel, Sawyer) will be joined by a baby sister this winter! We’re expecting her to arrive in February.
So glad you stopped by!
