Our fifth Dîner en Blanc was extra special because it was the 30th anniversary and Olivia joined us this year! I was fortunate to have Antz craft these gorgeous crepe paper peonies for my headpiece. We found his Venetian mask for less than €7 at an art supply store near our apartment. I bought a… Continue reading Le Dîner en Blanc Paris 2018
Every year I am aghast by how fast our kid is growing up. This is her eighth year and she is lovely, polite, smart, kind, funny, clever, creative, sometimes annoying but overall rad. I can’t believe she is so big now. Liv wears size 10/12 in clothes and size 4 in shoes. I bought her… Continue reading Joyeux Anniversaire Olivia!
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.

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
The time has come for my bebe to graduate from a nursery to a kid’s room. It was weird to see her giant body cram into her toddler bed every night so we figured it was time to makeover her room. Plus her Yo Gabba Gabba toys were taking up too much space on the tiny bed. Let… Continue reading Olivia’s Big Kid Bedroom Makeover
I was so excited to hear that the Rain Room exhibit is coming to Los Angeles. I was so bummed I missed out on seeing it at MOMA in New York a few years ago. I bought tickets for the earliest date which was a month in advance. Olivia always gets excited to visit LACMA so she… Continue reading LACMA Rain Room

As soon as we made the long, long fifteen hour drive back home from Portland, we had the busiest week of our year. Olivia went back to school and boy, Kindergarten is so much different than Pre-K. We used to have priority parking in the school lot but now it’s a struggle to find parking.… Continue reading First day of Kindergarten!!
