Happy Weekend

Happy weekend everyone. We’ve been busy this week tying up loose ends and fitting in last visits to our favorite cafes and bakeries. I know I am going to miss Paris like crazy when we get back but I am actually looking forward to getting through all of the stress of closing our accounts here and finding an apartment in San Francisco. Everything feels so unsettled right now. We are still trying to appreciate the little moments. It rained today but the skies cleared this afternoon for a little bit and we were sitting on our sofa with the kids talking. The sun was out and the window was open and a crisp spring breeze was coming in the room. We just sat there for a few minutes watching all the busy people on the street below meeting their kids after school or picking up a baguette from the boulanger for dinner. I tried to make a mental note of everything because I don’t want to forget . These are the kinds of things I will miss the most. Next week I’m going to be sharing some pictures of our apartment and some very special Paris content I’ve been working on! I hope you have a happy happy weekend wherever you are.

These tall cake plates with cake domes from Martha Stewart are awesome!
Todd Oldham for Target, totally genius.

Happy Weekend

Happy weekend! Everything is starting to feel so surreal here. We only have a couple weeks left and I get sort of weepy every time I eat a croissant or look at the Seine. I took the boys to the park and they both just randomly stopped and sat down together so I snapped this photo. I wonder if they (or mostly Moses) will remember any of this. Sigh… What are you doing this weekend? Anything fun?

I want every single one of these.
These are super cool. Do they hurt your eyes?
The new Bando Collection is out and it is amazing.
This awesome dress up doll. (BTW: My mom wouldn’t buy me a Barbie so I had to save up for one. Did you have a Barbie?)
Wooden tops from Etsy.

 

 

Happy Weekend

Happy Friday! My sister and her family are coming down to Paris today for a big Easter Egg hunt in front of the Eiffel Tower. I’m excited. We’ve been starting to pack up some things in our apartment this week. We actually found a perfect apartment in San Francisco but I’m still waiting to hear if we got it or not. Fingers crossed! I hope you have a happy weekend where you are!

Happy (Early) Weekend!

It is such a busy time right now! I got back from traveling three weeks ago and we’ve had (awesome) houseguests the last two weeks so I still feel like I’m playing catch up. This week we’ve been trying to close up accounts and sell furniture and make sure everything is all ready for the move. It’s stressful and I’m feeling a little drained. This weekend I’m going to do a “practice pack” which means I’m going to make sure everything we’re taking fits and isn’t overweight in our suitcases. We aren’t moving for another month but I’m trying to get the “work” out of the way so the last few weeks we can enjoy the city and spend time with our friends. I am signing off early this week so I can get stuff checked off my list and I just plain need some time away from the computer! I hope you have a wonderful weekend! (ps: Plus my sister Design Mom is coming up to spend a kids-free day in Paris with me tomorrow–I can’t wait!)

One more thing–we are still looking for an apartment in San Francisco beginning in May. If you know of any 2 bedroom apartments that get great light and are in Cole Valley, Hayes Valley, or Mission Dolores that are $2500ish/month please let me know!! (We are a little flexible on price and location.)

I love this skirt but am guessing it won’t be doing my hips any favors. Heading to try it on this week.

Happy Weekend

Happy Weekend! All the trees in front of the Eiffel tower are pink in blossoms and we came upon this field of daffodils this week at Parc Floral. Spring is here! I especially love this time of year because everyone is outside.  We’re no exception, we had four picnics this week! The parks and the banks of the river seem more crowded now than midsummer. I hope you had a wonderful weekend.
