I’m a big fan of Famille Summerbelle’s paper-cut prints and wallpapers, and was so excited to see one of their designs, Un Dimanche à Paris, gracing the cover of a new guidebook, The Little Bookroom Guide to Paris with Children.
As it turns out, we’re heading to Paris with Hudson in a few weeks (hooray!), so I immediately ordered a copy. I love its small size, especially because I’ll no doubt be carrying a lot more around than on past visits, when Aron and I visited sans child. And on first skim, it looks incredibly promising!
Have you been to Paris with a toddler? We have reserved a beautiful apartment on the Left Bank with Haven in Paris and I can’t wait!

Our poor baby boy got sick over the weekend and it was a doozy! That nasty stomach bug sent him to the ER on Monday for some IV fluids, which thank goodness brought him back to his usual happy self. It’s horrible seeing your little one in a hospital, but today you’d never know he’d been sick, and we can look back at it all with some laughter.
Some of the best strawberries can be found, freshly picked, just 4 miles from downtown Davis. It sort of blows my mind sometimes, driving just a few minutes beyond the restaurants and homes and the University, and finding myself surrounded by fields.
P.S. Nearby walnut groves and blossoming Almond trees. And a day-trip to go Strawberry picking on Long Island, NY.
A few weeks back, Aron and I walked toward downtown and into a local grocery co-op’s cooking school. I’ve always found taking a lesson in something together to make for a fun date and I’ve since gone back for a class with my sister-in-law and signed Aron and I up for Paneer-making lessons.
Our first time, we learned a few vegetarian Indian dishes–and got to sample delicious results. The last time we did this, we tried our hand at Thai… in Thailand… on our honeymoon.
Hudson and I tagged along with Aron a couple of Sundays ago, when he took off to Oakland for a conference. The city is only an hour away, but I’m always game for any sort of getaway. Here’s a little look at the ups and downs of our 24 hours on the bright side of the Bay–which I think you will agree, I could have better planned.
