Île de Ré was a fun surprise.  We expected it to be beachy and quaint, but we did not expect it to be so very quiet, which was just what we needed the night we arrived.

I recently read the 2023 New Yorker article The Case Against Travel.  The article almost made me wonder if I'm deluding myself about the importance of travel in my life.

Our Guide to Our Long Lost Love, Paris

On our most recent shopping trip for Elsie Green, we detoured to one of our favorite European cities and had a 72 hour reunion with our long lost love, Paris. It felt so good to explore a city that feels simultaneously familiar and veiled with a bit of mystery.
