THURSDAY THOUGHTS
Do you let your kids walk to school?
Here in Paris not many families own a car, so driving our kids to our local school is not really an option, especially as the traffic is so very bad. We mostly walk, and kids start walking on their own to school from about 8 or 9. My eldest daughter Coco started at 8 as ...

Stay and Bird, organic sweatshirts with sweet illustrations
As I'm writing this, I hear the wind howling outside and the rain is coming down in buckets from the sky. It seems that autumn is upon us here in Amsterdam! Even though I love summer (I find it by far the easiest season), I also like the specific characteristics of the other seasons. (Even ...

Summer Dotty Dungarees
I love dungarees on little children! They just look so sweet in them, trotting around with their little bellies sticking out in that bubbly outfit. Plus -- I like the convenience. They don't sag and one can get a lot of wear out of them thanks to the adjustable shoulder straps. OK, after potty training ...

My favourite dress (and it's pregnancy and breastfeeding friendly!)
A couple years ago, at the start of our family travels, I discovered the newly opened Christy Dawn shop in Venice, California.
