Paris with Children Official Release Date is…Today! April 16, 2013!
I’m excited that Paris With Children is finally out! And I saw it priced at $12.01 on amazon.com–which is a deal! I stopped into La Grande Orange, a trendy specialty store here in Phoenix, and saw the book on the shelf–always an exciting moment to see it somewhere outside of your own house! I can’t […]

Hot Chocolate in Paris
Charlotte, my 3-year-old, savoring a cup of hot chocolate in Paris, last December. Again I was reminded I should dress the girls in dark colors when we’re out and about. We were compelled by heavy rain to pop into the nearest café, but I’d recommend avoiding the tourist-laden cafés on Ave. de la Bourdonnais near […]

Travel Necessity: Envirosax Bags

Jardin du Luxembourg in December
We spent a lot of time in the parks around Paris, as always, this past December. Jardin du Luxembourg is probably my favorite in the city. It’s quintessential Paris with children; generations of families have strolled, played, and picnicked in this storied park. It’s the kind of place that tempts parents to consider relocating to […]
Chocolate Chip Scones
I should be writing about our trip to Paris, which by the way was brilliant, but instead I’m baking scones. I’ll post about the trip in the coming weeks. We are still recovering from jet lag. I’m trying to figure out how to update my website and blog efficiently, playing with new camera lenses and […]

This packing list by Doug Dyment, comprehensive yet efficient, has forever been my favorite. If you’re traveling with specialized equipment […]
