Worth the wait

Tuesday, May 21st, 2013

First of all, thank you, dear friends, for all your comments on my last post. Somehow life’s ginormous changes aren’t quite as scary with you next to me. Reading your kind words of congratulations and encouragement gave me my first tiny burst of confidence — a feeling of I can DO this! (instead of: we are […]

Carte postale: Fifty shades of grey

Friday, January 11th, 2013

I love Paris any time of the year, but lately the weather has been gloomy gumdrops: dark, grey, wet, cold — in other words, the perfect conditions for holing up inside and revising a manuscript. That’s where I am for the next few weeks, mes amis, and I apologize in advance for the paucity of […]

Carte postale: Here and there

Happy new year! We have gone from this: To this: Bonne année, bonne santé, plein de bonnes choses pour 2013! xoxo

Carte postale: NYC

Thursday, December 6th, 2012

Greetings from New York City! The skies are so blue, the sun so bright, the food so delicious, the reunions with old friends so sweet. Yesterday morning I found myself on the L train at rush hour, squeezed into a car with all the commuting Williamsburg hipsters. There was so much vintage clothing, it smelled […]

Carte postale: Happy Halloween

Wednesday, October 31st, 2012

I was supposed to leave California yesterday, but the storm has extended my visit for a few more days. The photos of the East Coast are horrible and my heart goes out to those facing damaged property, power cuts, floods and worse. Meanwhile, I’m guiltily basking in the California sunshine, carving pumpkins with my family […]

Carte postale: L’automne arrive

Tuesday, September 18th, 2012

Good news: We have moved to a new apartment! Bad news: Our kitchen is still in boxes, the boxes are piled waist-high, and last week I managed to set my laptop in a puddle of water where it rested for over 24 hours. As if I don’t have enough going on, I’m also on deadline […]

Carte postale: Farm fresh

Tuesday, September 11th, 2012

Greetings from Washington, DC! We’re still in furnished housing while we find a place to live. For now, I’m reveling in the things you can’t find in France, like sweet corn from the Farmer’s Market, so fresh its juices ran down my chin.

Carte postale: Hong Kong

Tuesday, August 21st, 2012

Greetings from Hong Kong! I’m here for work, which means I’m eating at least five meals a day, all in the name of research. I think I might be food drunk.

Carte postale: Lobster à table

Wednesday, July 4th, 2012

Greetings from Cape Cod! Last night, as we ripped the shells apart with our bare hands and dipped the meat into melted butter, my in-laws asked how they eat lobster in France. Not like this.

Carte postale: Among the pintxos

Friday, May 25th, 2012

A zurrita is a tiny glass of beer and there’s none more satisfying than one sipped while standing at a pintxos bar. I just got home from San Sebastiàn, Spain and the Pays Basque and am still sorting through 146 photos from my trip. I’ll be back again soon with a full report of all […]
