PETIT PARIS

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.

Bonton

Bonton is one of my favorite stores for children in Paris. where I can spend hours mining treasures, literally throwing myself into vintage little cars, whimsical toys and giant books.

wandering through the jardin du Luxembourg, playing ball and eating crêpes among the fallen leaves. then taking a beautiful walk up the boulevard Saint-Michel.

hope

this morning I sat with Sean and Will and explained to them that the United States of America had elected a new president. that he's African-American. that his name is Barack Obama. and that he's bringing hope.

never, ever had I imagined that I would live to see this day.

l'Oisive Thé

this weekend I took Sean and Will to l'Oisive Thé, a beautiful tea house owned by my good friend Aimee. books, dominos, delicious chocolate cake, Mr. Potato head toys and soft music playing in the background. there was something about the light, about my friend's care and kindness that spread a sense of contentment and warmth into our lives. we had a most lovely time.
