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.”

“Tonight (Nov. 9th) our family’s episode of House Hunters International will air at 10:30 p.m. PST on HGTV.”

“We got in one of those tiny elevators together and it seemed like the longest ride ever to the third floor. I fought my American instinct to break the silence and just stared at my clasped hands instead.”

Moving To Paris – Part Deux

“I can’t even remember if I cried as we pulled out of the driveway but I’m crying now as I think about all that we left. Not the stuff; the amazing people, the neighborhood and the experiences.”

Moving to Paris – Part 1

“I ended up taking lots of photos of sentimental items like my favorite Red Hot Chili Peppers t-shirt, hilarious poems about my love for whales, my diary from when I was 10 years old, a series of Rick Astley sketches and my dad’s Dolfin shorts.”
