Waiting for rain

It started to rain while we were walking home from a tea party...

Random Obsessions

This kitchen.  Especially that walnut countertop!

Etienne Daho.  Especially every song on this 1984 La Notte La Notte album!

Pre-fab homes (yes, still!).  Especially Connect Homes, which can be shipped anywhere in the world!

Happy Birthday Gracie!

Grace with my mom at her 2nd Birthday Party
I could be better rested,
my house could be so much cleaner,
be less late for work in the morning,
read interesting books more often,
catch up on my favorite TV shows,
take naps on the weekends,
ride my bike around the neighborhood more often,
try on clothes when I go shopping,
eat at fancier restaurants,
watch movies with your daddy,
take my time enjoying meals,
flip through magazines,
referee fewer fights,
put away fewer toys,
wipe up fewer messes,
wash chocolate milk from the sofa slipcovers less often,
spend more time and money on myself....

....but you are sooooooooooooo worth it, Gracie!

Happy 2nd Birthday, my little baby!  When you read this one day, I hope you know how much I love you.

Phamily Reunion - Cancun 2012

I just came back from an amazing family reunion in Cancun!  The beach and weather were beautiful, but my favorite part was being with my family!  We did what we do best--ate buffets, swam en masse in the ocean and the pool, slept on the beach, and clubbed (yes, clubbed!!).  I haven't been clubbing in about 15 years, but my nice hubby watched the kids while I joined all my cousins at Mandala and The City.  I expected to feel wayyyy old, but you know what--it was really fun just being with them!  I love these guys....Best. Reunion. Ever!!

Two of my favorite people: Jenny (who organized the reunion), and my sister Michou.

Remy (2), Colin (6), Bodhi (4), Grace (almost 2), Sophie (4.5)

Guess who got some air on the right??  

My family.  Thank you, Darren, for being such a great sport on this trip!

"dos hijas"

My female cousins.  We are really tight!  Love you all.
