@modernkids Sarah Hebenstreit  inspired by the magical ✨ world of kids • mama to Willa 💛 @joeheb • country girl in San Francisco

what a beautiful experience learning about a wonderful female owner (mother & grandmother) and her magical 🐝 products @sweetbeemagic thank you @katiehintzzambrano @mothermag mothermag @sweetbeemagic @costco #medicinemama #sweetbeemagic #costco @marigold_sf

we made a pine cone bird feeder this morning inspired by the #ForestSchoolAdventure book - more details in stories 🐦

winter citrus 🍋 should I make a lemon curd and meringue tartlet or an Italian lemon olive oil cake? #potrerohill #sanfrancisco

Willa made a scrap wood house with her dad yesterday. She designed it all by herself and just needed a little help glueing it together. Today she was very excited about painting it. What a fun rainy/snowy day project. All you need is some scrap wood/cardboard, glue, and a child’s imagination. ✨

happy Saturday to you / it’s cold and rainy here in San Francisco which feels like perfect baking weather / I made these cute mini pound cakes and they were good but maybe a little too sweet (and a braided Christmas stollen recipe from @joeheb ‘s great grandma in the second video which was extra sweet but a good balance) / anyone have a favorite pound cake recipe? Next time I may try the olive oil, rosemary, lemon recipe linked in my stories 🍋

“And now we welcome the new year. Full of things that have never been.” -Rainer Maria Rilke #happynewyear

Tell my little girl she’s creative in her choice of clothes, tell her it’s nice to meet her, ask her her name or the title of her favorite book, tell her she looks fast in those shoes but please stopping telling her she’s beautiful/pretty/cute or call her a princess.
It’s really nice of you and you mean well I know because I’ve also said it to many little girls but I’m trying to stop. A few weeks before Christmas I photographed some very sick kids. One was an absolutely stunning 17 year old with severe anorexia. She was skin and bones literally but still incredibly beautiful. We were instructed not to mention anything about her looks. I could barely make it through a 20 minute shoot without commenting on her beauty. Seeing this very sick child I reflected back on how often I’ve commented on a girl’s looks instead of asking her questions about her life. Let’s stop demonstrating to little girls that their looks are tantamount to everything else. If you don’t have anything to say just smile and say “Hi, it’s nice to meet you on this beautiful day.”

happy holidays to you & yours from our Pennsylvania farm on this winter day (+ a few months ago, same view)

wishing you a peaceful evening full of light🕯and loved ones on the longest night of the year #wintersolstice #midwinter #happyholidays

a week ago with sweet friends, celebrating thanksgiving & much needed rain that brought a break to terrible air, and eating lots of cake and pie - I could use a piece of your cake @aleliap @tarazdees 🎂

the best part of the holiday season is finding small ways to help others / tomorrow I’m stopping by the kick-off event for the @mytrove Winter Donation Drive co-hosted by @lonnymag & @apartment34 to support three incredible organizations @onewarmcoat @sfmfoodbank @lacasadelasmadres supporting women and families.
From tomorrow through Dec. 4th you can donate clothes, bedroom furniture, toys, gently used and/or brand new coats, and canned food by simply driving up to the entrance of @mytrove (1200 17th Street in Potrero Hill). @mytrove is also generously matching any monetary donations. I hope to see you tomorrow! (a link with more info in my stories)

Happy Monday to you! Have you ever candied citrus peel? We candied some yesterday (finishing up today) and it was a fun, easy and a satisfying thing to make with a child.
I used the simple candied peel recipe from the lovely #fannyatchezpanisse by @alicelouisewaters published in 1992 and still so wonderful and relevant. I love how easy the recipe was. We used two oranges and a grapefruit we had in the fridge. Leaving the pot overnight was fun too so we could anticipate finishing them up today.

Willa had her first bite and they were still a little warm and she said “wow these are delicious so yummy and gooey and lemony like candy.” Well, it is a ton of sugar but still it was a cute response. I think we’ll make another batch for some holiday and teacher gifts. #candiedpeel #bakingwithkids #candiedlemon
