Paris might be our favorite place to travel to as a family–we’ve been going there since our daughter Clara was a toddler–and are lucky enough to have work bring us there regularly. So last year when the mapmakers at Herb Lester asked me to make a map for families, I was so pleased to have […]


I had the good fortune to be in Paris over New Years, and I found myself in the unlikely position of hosting a meal for thirteen people in our rental apartment. Ok, six adults and seven kids, but still! It proved to be the perfect opportunity to sample the food secret all French women already […]
