Parisian Dream

After seeing this flat in Paris designed by Gilles & Boissier, I think a move to Paris might be at the top of my New Year's resolution list now. It's perfect in every way especially those herringbone floors and boiseries and gilt mirrors get the idea. 

Bon weekend!

Friday marks three weeks since my father had his triple bypass operation.  He won't be running a marathon any time soon but we are confident that he will be feeling better than ever within a few months.  I want to thank all of you who sent messages and emails regarding his health.  We appreciate all of your suggestions, stories, and prayers.  It was especially helpful to hear about all of your friends and relatives who are leading full lives since their own surgery.  One was on a cruise and a few others lived into their 90's so that was very encouraging.

Here's to a happy and healthy New Year for everyone!

Let It Snow

I was away at book signings both times it snowed in New York last month but it looks like I won't be missing the big snow storm that's hitting much of the country this week.  Here's to a white Christmas and a winter wonderland. 

Bon Weekend!
