What I have been up to? Well I have been collaborating with one of the best pattern designers out there, to recreate a dress that I had bought Olivia last Easter. If you guessed that it was Dawn from Olabelhe then you were right. Just click on the picture and visit her site. Isn’t this dress just amazing? What is even more amazing is that this dress is undoubtedly the cutest and yet most elegant dress pattern I have seen in a long time. It is the perfect blend of a peasant and fitted bodice. Perfect. I am afraid that we will have to wait a little while to get our hands on this one, but “good things come to those who wait”. I am so thrilled that Dawn took this challenge, and I was able to see this idea come to fruition. She is amazing and very talented indeed. I am just all jumpy inside like a little child wanting to get my hands on this one. 🙂


Too cute for words. Just had to post it.

This site is full of nutrious delicious recipes…..YUM.

Why French Parents Are Superior by Pamela Druckerman


My mother called me this morning after reading this article. She read the entire article to me over the phone. It was more then just a relief for me to hear this, even though I do not consider myself “perfect” by any means. However, it was good to hear that maybe I did do a few things right with Nicolas, and he wasn’t “just born that way”. It also made me realize that I have a little bit of work to do on Olivia.
In either case, Ms. Druckerman made some very good points about how Educating a child – no matter what age or temperament – is something we all should be doing. We are the parents, right?
