Photo Monday – Coney Island

Saturday was sunny and cold and I’ve always wanted to check out Coney Island when it’s deserted. So I went. E came with me. We went toward the end of the afternoon, hoping to catch the end of day light.

Photo Monday – Carl Schurz Park

The good thing about cloudy days is that I don’t feel bad for not catching the sunrise on my camera. The girls and I went to the western side of Manhattan a lot this Summer, walking along the Hudson. I’ve

Photo Monday – Provence Part 3

We had a few slower days during our trip. One spot I wanted to visit was the Forêt des cèdres. It isn’t a must see but being in a wooded area on a hot day is lovely. We walked one

Photo Monday : Ballerina

Souricette 1 had her ballet recital on Sunday.   I love her dance school’s recitals.  They’re short (under an hour!) and all classical ballet.  The owner gives very specific instructions for hair and makeup.  In fact, makeup is optional.  If
