Summer Vacay 2016

Hey There, I have returned to the blogosphere! I really wanted to blog about our summer but I have been so dang busy. Cough, lame excuse! I just renewed my WordPress premium account because guess who ran out of photo storage space again?

Liv’s Lemonade Stand

Hello There, I finally have a moment to catch up after a busy last few weeks. Liv has been requesting to have a lemonade stand for months but we wanted to wait until it was closer to summer.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Olivia’s school follows the French school calendar so her Spring break was last week. I love that it’s later in April after Los Angeles public schools because less crowds! We had a busy week and the highlight was Antz taking a day off so we could go to Universal Studios. Unsuspecting Liv received a Hogwarts… Continue reading The Wizarding World of Harry Potter

I was so… Continue reading Cirque du Soleil Kurios

2015: Our Year in Pictures

It’s been a long year for me. 2015 had it’s highs and lows but when I look back at all the photos I took this year, I must say it wasn’t as bad as I remembered. I wish we travelled outside the country more but I can’t complain since I was able to visit my… Continue reading 2015: Our Year in Pictures

Dîner en Blanc Los Angeles 2015

Last year we waited and waited to hear the announcement for Los Angeles Dîner en Blanc but never heard anything. Lucky for us, we were able to attend the DEB in Paris. This year I figured they would email us some time during the summer but we didn’t hear anything by August. So, I planned on not… Continue reading Dîner en Blanc Los Angeles 2015
