We’re heading out of town to Paris tomorrow.

It sounds sexy, but I promise to vomit on the plane and to have an affair with Gerard Depardieu who will give me the Clap because I don’t want you to be jealous of me in the way that I’m jealous of that f-ing jet-setting Gwyneth Paltrow.

Hmm. What if Gerard and Gwynnie had an affair??

Gwyneth? Are you mad? Absolument pas! I hate zee skinny bitches!


Gerard, you must clean the brie out of your neck before you touch my pristine lady bits!









Wish me a safe flight and no cheese allergies. And my family wishes yours a safe yet adventuresome Happy New Year 2014. xo S

mom and me

Here I am with my second mom at my niece’s baptism yesterday. I was doubly blessed in the mom category.

Here are almost all of the people I love best. My sister, brother, parents and their families. My niece Laina is in white. We came together for her baptism.

Getting a real smile on camera from Clare is as rare as a rainbow-hued unicorn. But the kid can make me laugh.

Bridget’s freckles make me happy.

    That sounds like one hell of a way to bring in the New Year! Meanwhile, in Minnesota it’s a breezy -3. Our celebrations will be inside only. Enjoy Paris!
