Grazie, Sicilia

“Sicilia was so good to us. We wanted to get a feel for the island through the landscape, architecture, monuments, cuisine, and the people and I think we did just that during our 5-day trip.”

Remembrance of Things Past

“As soon as I tasted the crispy dough and sweet ricotta cream, I had a Proustian moment and was transported to the island of Sicily, which we visited as a family in 2017.”

In Sickness and in Health

“It seems like yesterday that Jonas and I were gazing lovingly into each other’s eyes and saying ‘I do’ in front of family and friends in Sonoma. This past weekend, we celebrated our 17-year anniversary with a bike ride on the banks of the Seine, along with our two sweet and delightfully mischievous children.”

A Jelly Belly Easter

“This Easter, while in confinement, I felt like I wanted to do something special for RhĂ´ne and Rocky – something that might take our minds off the fact that we are in our small Paris apartment 23 hours a day instead of outside smelling flowers, running free and soaking up the sunshine on a warm spring day.”

The Impossible Goodbye

“We agreed that when it was time for me to leave, we’d say our final goodbyes. I could tell she was worried about me. I said, ‘It’s okay, Mom. I’ve prepared myself for this.’”

Life as we Know it

“When my body won’t hold me anymore
And it finally
Lets me free
Will I be ready?”

Birthday Voyage

“I called my brother and sister to get their take on the situation and we all agreed it was a good idea to gather and support our parents ASAP. I booked a plane ticket and 36 hours later, I was on my way to the motherland.”

The Perfect Storm

“Our last trip to the US was cra-zay. I barely even have the energy to tell the story.”

Showcase Showdown

“For as long as I can remember, my sister and I have been fans of over-the-top photos. Our Glamour Shot from 1991 is proof of that.”

Greenpeace

“Before heading to my parents’ house, Hilary and I drove to Oakland to hit up a marijuana dispensary, as you do. Mom was out of CBD oil and her appetite was almost non-existent, so we hoped to find something to remedy that.”
