They’re calling us “The New Guard.” A little group of Parisiennes who have been around just a year or two, and who met through our mutual love of blogging, food, photography, and this beautiful city we get to call home.
I was flattered to be interviewed by Amy Thomas, author of Paris, My Sweet, and all-around lovely person, as part of a series of interviews with this group of girls (who happen to be some of my favorite people in Paris). Take a look here to get to know me a bit better! It’s not every day that someone calls me sassy, after all.
Additionally, Amy is kindly offering a copy of her delicious book to a lucky reader. Her memoir of her time in Paris has guided me to some of my favorite spots, and her words can’t fail to whisk you off to the best patisseries and chocolateries the city has to offer. When I move back to the States, I know I’ll pick up Paris, My Sweet again and again to live vicariously through past-Amy.

Are you tired of my raptures over Parisian spring yet, dear reader?
Well too bad, because I’m still in love with it. Even more so after this Sunday, during which I attended a most charming picnic arranged by the amazing Lauren, who was a perfect hostess, providing themed serviettes, straws, decorations, and being generally welcoming and lovely.
Carin was kind enough to invite me to this féte celebrating the “opening of the grass,” when the parks of Paris begin to welcome people to step onto, roll around on, and scamper through the lawns.
The sky was a blessed blue and the grass of Parc Monceau was green and it was so sunny that I actually got a small sunburn on my shoulders. An honest-to-goodness sunburn!
O brought his dorkiest guitar and I brought my ukulele. He spent a lot of time playing well and I spent some time serenading badly.

A few weeks ago, I received one of those no-brainer invitations. The gist was: “hey, want to get together with a bunch of awesome bloggers and eat eclairs for a few hours?”
Obvious answer, right?
Carin from Paris in Four Months invited me, Milsters from Little Pieces of Light, Grace from Will She Love Paris? Edna from Expat Edna, Melanie from Feed Your Awesome Machine and Sugared & Spiced to taste a sampling of eclairs L’Eclair de Genie and L’Atelier de l’Eclair for an article on the HiP Paris blog. Go check it out for details and Carin’s amazing photography!
