    What a great idea to combine your Paris and USA trips. Plus, we get to see the kids growing up. Izzy gets lovelier every year. But what a hair raiser with those storms. Glad everyone is ok, as well as their house.
    Do keep posting every so often, when it suits you. I enjoy seeing your “old friends” in other settings.

    Lovely pictures. And my friends also are not making trips to Paris this summer. everyone is staying away, too many people!
    Actually I love it in Paris in December and January. One year when I was in school there, it snowed. I mean I as a NYer wouldnt call it snow, it was about 2 inches at most!! That to me was not snow, but to my flatmates it was drifts! They didnt want to walk in it. People were slipping all over the place. So I had to go out to get food! And of. course I didnt have boots!

    A great thing about January is that is when the sales start. All over, every store. Including Hermes. So many things on sale!

    Enjoy your summer, enjoy your trip in December! I’ll bet you will be surprised that you will love it there then!

    Izzy is getting prettier each year. How old is she now. Glad you had a good time.

      Please, please send me an email for a time to have lunch. Terry Lewis and I were discussing how much we miss you yesterday at lunch!

    Love these, and especially remember this beautiful young girl, who looks quite at home in Paris. What a lovely family!

    As for your weekend, so very grateful that you all survived the weather. Now that’s another memory for the books.

    Loving your blog.
