Gabriel Adores Olivia

A happy little family. Gabriel adores Olivia.   When Gabriel started to consume solids I would say, "Mmm, mmm, mmm, yummy for the tummy." Gabriel started to say this too, especially when something was extra delicious. He refers to being hungry, or wanting something to eat as, "Yum". When Gabriel first saw his mother he let out a giggle, nearly leaping out of his father's arms to get to his mother and his sister. He was very aware that a baby was coming referring to her as Papilotte. After he ...

Cordoue Incredible Find

  I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this flawless fragment of Cordoue Wrought Leather. Standing there starring at it, as if to say, "How did that land at a fleamarket?"   "Leather wallpaper is a type of wallpaper used in various styles for wall covering. It is often referred to as wrought leather. It is often gilded, painted, and decorated. With the advent of wallpaper use from about 1650-1750, leather was used to cover and decorate sections of walls in the habitations of wealthy persons. L...

Five Seconds with Gabriel at the Park

  Climbs up the wooden playground structure.       Takes it in.     In that sponge-like brain, he soaks it in Sound, color, elements, people's expressions, he feels the energy, processes, absorbs. Because every second is a learning moment and play is important.       Content. Safe.       Check.   Turns around and goes down. Then we went and ate a crepe.                 Related Stories The Pied PiperFlying a KiteOn Your Mark…  [Author: French la Vie]

Chelsea and Company

  Any day now someone will be with us. p.s. Gabriel is not resting on her belly- I have asked Chelsea how she can hold him in such a way and she reassured me that she is holding him up. I can barely lift Gabriel. Chelsea holds Gabriel often saying soon my baby won’t look so little when a tiny baby comes, “I am cherishing these days where he is my little one.”                  [Author: French la Vie]

Au Bain Marie in Paris

  As I am in Paris counting down the days before the baby arrives with Chelsea and Co. I am rediscovering old haunts and new wonders. Au Bain Marie (A bain-marie, a type of heated bath, is a piece of equipment used in science, industry, and cooking to heat materials gently or to keep materials warm over a period of time. A bain-marie is also used to melt ingredients for cooking) I stumbled upon while walking back and forth from our apartment to Chelsea and Co.'s apartment (five miles) Au Bain ...

Trailblazer of Love

Today is my mother’s birthday. She baked two cakes, « in case anyone comes over », my mother is thoughtful of others, even on her birthday. Birthdays highlight the time that has passed between one year to the next. There is a tradition in Provence to remove one of the lite candles from their birthday cake, put it aside, then watch it slowly burn down. While the candle slowly burns those gather reflect about the year that has passed. When I think of the year that has passed by for my mom my h...

Even This is Different in France

    Colors are the same, Money is in Euros, Rules and format the same, Names of properties French streets and train stations. Yann and I have been playing after dinner it takes less than an hour for one of us to win. We are tied. Luck still has plenty to do with it. When is the last time you played a board game?                  [Author: French la Vie]

Brocanting With Me

    ....waiting to go to the Brocante. This morning while typing this post for my blog I am waiting for a blogging friend to come by. I do not know her other than messages online. Nevertheless she reads my blog which means she knows more about me than I  know about her. Though what I do know about Mary is this: She loves the brocante. Do I need to know more? In a few seconds she will ring my phone (that is what I told her to do when she got to my street) and I will run out and jump in her car a...

Road Map Madonna

Walking along in Paris I spotted this mix media portrait in a gallery window. I dubbed it Road Map Madonna though most likely it is another take on Frida Kahlo. Oh the roads our lives travel on weaving us to each other.                  [Author: French la Vie]

Today He Said My Name

During dinner this evening Gabriel called me Vavie. He has been calling me O. E. Though this evening he called me the name I called my Grandmothers and that my children call my mom. Today the tradition continues. He was so cute after he said Vavie  he whispered O. E. a few times  and then he smiled.                       [Author: French la Vie]

One of the Best Friday Nights in Paris

Dinner around a coffee table with a two year old who learned the classic French childhood expression  »Caca Boudin » … Giggling when mastering a bottle squirter in the bathtub  while more water is out of the tub than inside the tub. …. Six stories some read twice Three retelling of Goldilocks Fifteen times answering  »Where is momma and daddy? » … Pretending to be asleep in a boat while someone else is experiencing their shadow on the bedroom wall. … Having my closed eye lids poked, while someo...
