I'm off to Paris kids. I'm packing up the family and switching houses with complete strangers! Mid-trip, we will take a train to Amsterdam to meet up with Matt and his lovely family for the weekend. Once back in Paris, I've been instructed by my daughter that we must find the very best playground in town. I'm excited to introduce her to Chausson aux Pommes and fresh markets. We are looking forward to a playdate with Marie, checking out the Louvre's special section as recommended by Andy, and doing some shopping at Balouga.
So as you can imagine, I will not be in front of my computer for the next 14 days. While we are gone, we are missing some pretty special events and birthdays. So Natasha, Michele, and Ella Joy (turns 2) - may this next year bring you much joy, success and happiness. Tonight we will miss our are friends Lauren and Pascal perform at Joe's Pub as well as Olafur Eliasson's preview at PS1 and the Cherry Blossoms in full bloom. And I think the Pope is here so I'm glad to miss the cluster mess in the city!
If anyone has recommendations for family fun in Paris or Amsterdam, let me know. Otherwise, stroll through the sites I like on the right or in the archives to the left. I'll be back in May with a fresh smile and plenty to share.
