bonjour! this is where I document my life with my family, things we like to do, places we like to go and random things that inspire and make me happy.

the city has commissioned contemporary artist JR (a long time favorite of mine) to create a participatory work inspired by his Inside Out project during the restoration of the Pantheon. thousands of faces that have been collected last spring through a photobooth truck cover the dome, the cupola and the floor of the monument. of course I couldn't think of a better way to spend our Sunday afternoon.
more info and photos about the installation here.

visiting the Arènes de Nîmes in preparation of an upcoming event for non-profit Secours Populaire Français later this month. thinking Oliver would have been 8 months old today. and loving that he's sending me at the south end of France so that I don't spend the day curled up in bed.
thank you baby monkey. I love you.
a delightful Sunday afternnon at La Fête à Neu-Neu, an annual fair that takes place in Paris near the Bois de Boulogne, where we rode bumper cars, threw hoops, ate a dozen churros and splashed down on the Log Flume.
after only 110 days on earth, Oliver Noah Yu-An Nam, beautiful baby of Irene and Yoon-Seok Nam, has been called home to become an angel in Heaven. Oliver passed away suddenly on Tuesday, May 20th 2014.
Oliver was a precious gift who filled his family's home with love and joy. he will forever remain in the hearts of his adoring parents and his beloved brothers, Sean and Will.
may the sudden passing of this sweet baby boy remind us all that our lives, and the lives of those we love, are precious and far too short. may his legacy be that we learn to love our families and friends more fully, and treasure every moment we share.
