Friday fave :: the perfect serve of Boursin

I’ve been on the go lately as wanderlust has inevitably crept in to my spring and now summer plans. And since the Brit has some time off in between jobs we are looking forward to touring Vietnam and driving through New England over the next few weeks. On the days that we’re both home I’ve been…

Inspired by Paris

A few weeks ago I traded one grand city for another.  Joined by two other freelance friends, Christine & Kathy, we strolled through one arrondissement to the next over five days to take in Paris.  We couldn’t have picked a better week to be free from our day to day distractions and fuel up on our collective creative…
