#MummyMondays: My favourite ornament

This is my favourite Christmas ornament, made just before last Christmas when Little Miss was only 3 months old by Helen of Made With Love, It’s the ornament I put on last and the one that I can’t wait to see on the tree. Little Miss’ foot is still small but she’s grown so much already. […]

#MommyMondays: Jingle Bells are ringing!

Christmas is my favourite time of year, so I’m overjoyed to see the lights and decorations up everywhere! This is the window at Ladurée at the place de la Madeleine, which has just recently re-opened after a few weeks of renovations. This week I’m hoping to get Little Miss’ picture done with Santa as well […]

Mommy Mondays: Here comes the… Turkey!

Let’s sweep the bad weather away

It’s been another fun family weekend and yesterday was a blast, celebrating DH’s first Father’s Day!

But today when we woke up […]

We spent the weekend alone

DH was back in Paris at the end of last week so Little Miss and I spent the last few days alone in the countryside. I’m always a bit nervous and needlessly paranoid that if anything should happen to me Little Miss would be completely alone and obviously unable to fend for herself. Despite all […]
