Beautiful Norwegian Sweaters

Keep warm this winter with a beautiful Norwegian knit sweater.  I love all the little details.  These pictures remind me of Victoria magazine with a dash of Anthropologie.  Found here.

Back from Vacation

I'm glad to be back!  Back to my own comfy bed, a kitchen where I can cook my own food, my pitiful little garden, a washer and dryer, etc, etc.  Yes, I mentioned a washer and dryer because we were only able to locate a laundromat halfway through the trip and do laundry once (we went back the next night and sadly found it wasn't open 24 hours).  When we got to Italy we filled the up the bathtub and hand-washed a few more things.  I told my sister some people take a bucket and plunger and do laundry that way while on the road.

We spent the first few days in London, then went by train to Paris, caught a plane to Italy and then flew back home from London.  I tagged along with my sister and her family and traveling with a toddler is always quite an adventure!

I bought my first macaron at McDonald's in Paris.  Then we went to La Duree and got several more.  I finally understand why bloggers can go on and on about these yummy macarons!

French Style

I'm headed for Europe tomorrow so that means lots of last minute packing (and re-packing after I think up some more genius outfit ideas).

It is always tricky trying to predict the weather.  I keep checking the 10 day weather forecast and hopefully it will stay in the 60s.

Isn't this lady darling?  Trench found here.   

My travel wardrobe has quite a few striped shirts.  What can I say...I love striped shirts - especially if they look even remotely French.  From here.
