Pretty in Pink Day in Geneva with Jasper!

Hello everyone!

Today was the last of our lazy days as Dragan goes back to work tomorrow. We didn’t want to do much, so after Almond Croissants, I made myself go for a run with my friend Miriana and then we decided to head into Geneva. We wanted Starbucks and today was a lovely day for it, with temperatures in the high 50’s and the sun shining overhead! ( Read more

A new Step

This weekend was rather exciting for us as we drove Sunday 4 hours into the middle of France to…………!

Meet and reserve our new puppy! For those who know me, know that I lost my girl Bailey July 29th and that broke my heart. I posted a letter to her in my blog that I went back and read this morning before I could write this.  I wanted to wait until I felt more ready, but as I still can’t work here, we decided it was time. Not wanting to have another small dog, as Bailey needs to have that place in my heart, we decided we wanted a Golden Retriever. We went to the breeders’ house and the puppies are only 13 days, so we have reserved a boy, but will pick him out when he’s just a bit older. As I’m going to the US for over a month, this is perfect, as we will get him at the beginning of December. I’m very excited, and although a part of me feels a sense of sadness for moving ahead, I believe it is the right thing to do! I will continue posting on this new adventure and I look forward to sharing our little boy. We were told we have to name our dog with the letter J. Isn’t that bizarre? Something about French law and tradition as it coincides with the year 2014, and although my natural tendency is to rebel against anyone telling me what to do, I think we will try to respect that in honor of our time living here in France. Here are the babies. We did not get to meet the mother as she is with her pups, but here is a pic of the papa! Do you have a Golden? Would love to hear!

For the weekend, I wanted to show 2 different ways to wear a summer maxi skirt in Fall. I love both looks.

Recipe for Meatball Tortellini Soup

I made a delicious soup the other night, if I do say so myself, and several people asked me to post the recipe, so I’ve decided to post it here as it’s easier to add images, etc.

So, here it is! ( Read more
