Christine Koh


I'm Christine Koh, a music and brain neuroscientist turned multimedia creative. I'm the founder + editor of Boston Mamas, co-author of Minimalist Parenting, co-host of the Edit Your Life podcast, and creative director at Women Online. Drop me a line; I'd love to chat about how we can work together!

Best of January 2013

g-f-cupcakes.jpgI'm so proud of the wonderful, resourceful, multi-vertical writing that goes on at this site! I used to do monthly newsletters and round up my favorite posts but completely fell off the newsletter wagon once Violet was born. So I've decided to revisit this approach in an easier way: at the end of each month I'll share the most helpful, insightful, favored-by-the-community posts. I'll also try to sprinkle in some other fun finds, such as favorite pins -- like these gluten-free Hostess-like cupcakes that I want to try making for Violet's birthday. I hope you enjoy the roundups, for browsing over your lunch break, at school pickup, or wherever!
