Welcome to the Royal Baby

France being a republic, it’s strange and amusing to see how much attention the arrival of the Royal Baby has garnered. We were in Brittany with DH’s family and interrupted dinner to watch Prince George’s release from the hospital live on TF1 (the most important television station in France). I thought I would add fire […]

La canicule

There’s finally a canicule in France — the dreaded, elusive heatwave! I love it since I thrive on hot, humid weather in the summertime but DH and Little Miss are having a much harder time. DH doesn’t support humidity very well and Little Miss is just a baby, so obviously she’s miserable (even though she […]

Deadlines

This exhibition has been travelling the globe, and after stops in Shanghai, Beijing and Moscow, it’s now come […]
