Paris? Mais, Oui!

With the craziness of holidays, baby, work
combined with me being an air-head,
I almost forgot to say it here:

We are headed (back) to Paris for the spring!

This February, we are headed back
to the City of Lights
for another springtime of 
crepes, chambray, picnics along the river, Degas,
pastries, Monoprix sales, steak-frites, freezing in the Paris weather,
and making memories that will stay with us forever.

It's not exactly uprooting your life
to go somewhere else for 3 months,
but what great things in life
come without a bit of hard work & trade-off?

Instead of feeling interrupted or burdened
I feel thankful for my boss + job
and grateful for a husband 
who is supportive and 
who can, for the most part, work anywhere.

... and, I'm excited to dress Viola in French baby clothes.

To take a peek at our previous life in Paris,
take a wander through here.


  1. How lovely! I love how you take such a positive approach to something that could seem somewhat like a burden (especially when you have a little one!). I can't wait to see how adorable Viola is in all those clothes - like she could be any more adorable!?

  2. How exciting! Can't wait to read about your new Paris adventures.

  3. Wow, how exciting! Paris is one of my favorite cities in the world. How lucky you are to be able to live there for 3 months!

  4. Awesome! You should put your London flat up on One Fine Stay while you're away! We used them when we visited London and stayed in Notting Hill - i'm sure yours would be a hit! They are an amazing company!

  5. Can I come with you??? What a great adventure :)

  11. Has it really been almost 2 years since HIP??? Have so much fun, eat too many steak frites and hog your own pot of mustard for old times sake. Plus, I have a feeling Viola is going to thrive in Paris. Perhaps she can find her own French lover browsing the racks at Baby Dior?

  12. What an exciting adventure Lauren! Oh how I wish I could live in Paris for a few months every year...what a sweet life you live my dear. Hope you have fun! And I can't wait to see Viola in all the lovely French clothes :) xoxo

  13. how exciting! and I am excited to see Viola in French baby clothes :).

  14. Does that mean miss Viola will be celebrating her 1st birthday anniversary in Paris?
    That sounds tres Super!
    I have friends in Paris I should send your family around to their flat so you can show them they too can have a cute french baby. We need an excuse to visit.
