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 […]

I’ve been wanting to do a post on Paris for ever. It’s my hometown after all, and although I have not lived there in almost 20 years (20!!), I know it inside out because I love it. And I hate it. Isn’t it always like this when we’re in love? Paris est tout petit pour […]

I love the metallic accordion balls they had hanging down in one window this year, and the snowflake window they did two years ago. You can buy the metallic balls for $13 a dozen, although […]

Dana Gallagher writes a blog The Stuff to Remember, and recently wrote about a trip to Paris with her 4-year-old daughter, which didn’t turn out exactly as she had anticipated. Her post about it, below, is incredibly honest, and a good reminder about how much unnecessary pressure on ourselves when we travel, and how we […]
