Life in Paris: Month Deux

Bonjour mes amis, It has already been two months since our arrival in Paris! I cannot tell you how fast this time has flown by. We exchanged our house in LA with a sweet French couple in Nation (12th arrondissement) for the first two months so we could have time to apartment hunt. I am… Continue reading Life in Paris: Month Deux

Road Trip to Brussels, Belgium

It feels like we have been traveling non-stop! My plan was to hit up Amsterdam for the weekend to see the tulip festival but the weather wasn’t cooperating so I drove to Brussels for Belgium chocolate and seeing the little pissing boy. It’s only a two hour drive so we got there easy peasy. We… Continue reading Road Trip to Brussels, Belgium

Pâques aux jardins de Claude Monet

This was the first year since Liv was born that we didn’t spend Easter Sunday with our dear friends Stephen & Leslie at their annual Easter Party. We tried to FaceTime with them but the connection was terrible. We spent Easter Sunday driving through Normandie to Giverny, France to visit the Claude Monet gardens. To… Continue reading Pâques aux jardins de Claude Monet

As of 2009, the island… Continue reading Magical Mont Saint-Michel

We didn’t get out of the apartment until after 3 pm! Whoopsie, I always forget how tired… Continue reading Road Trips: Chantilly & Rouen

This is no Dream… This is Really Happening!

Nous sommes arrivés à Paris! I can’t believe we have been here three whole days. Of course time is flying by in this beautiful city. Our flight was seamless which is shocking considering how much grief our fourteen pieces of luggage plus our huge iMac computer was giving Antz and me. Thank goodness my Mom… Continue reading This is no Dream… This is Really Happening!

Our House Tour on Apartment Therapy

During the last few years we have done quite a lot of work to our house. I tried to photograph how beautiful everything turned out but I couldn’t capture it the way a professional could. I visited my friend Samantha’s lovely house and she told me her friend Marisa Vitale was a photographer and I… Continue reading Our House Tour on Apartment Therapy

Infinity Mirrors by Yayoi Kusama at The Broad

On New Year’s day we started 2018 in the most colorful way possible. Yayoi Kusama is one of my favorite artists because she has a wig made of yarn. She is also a brilliant and weird  lady that I adore. I’ve previously tried four times to get into her Infinity Mirrors exhibit unsuccessfully but finally,… Continue reading Infinity Mirrors by Yayoi Kusama at The Broad
