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 […]

Happy New Year 2014!!

Winter Solstice 2013

This past weekend was Liv’s school’s annual Winter Solstice. It was raining like crazy and must have been one of the coldest days we’ve had here in Los Angeles. My wardrobe doesn’t accommodate for anything lower than 60°. As I was leaving the house the sun peeked through the clouds so I put away my […]

Since Antz is mellow by nature and doesn’t like […]
