Thanksgiving went off with out a hitch - great company + even greater host, full bellies were achieved. I'm a thankful girl who loves her family and friends (+ fresh baguettes).

Let the holidays begin!

Pinch Me

Every morning when I open the door*, it's the same walking into a dream.

Even after being here for a couple months, I wonder around wide-eyed overwhelmed with the beauty of my surroundings... I'm holding on to my Paris moments. It's been a busy couple of weeks but I can't wait to be a better lil' poster - write more / share more...

*This is my street + freshly decorated with christmas lights

L'Atelier de Henri

I had the opportunity to spend a lovely afternoon with my teacher Henri Matchavariani in his Paris studio or Atelier. It's always so interesting to step inside a creative space, it definitely plays an essential role in the artistic process.

It was a real treat to take a closer look at his oodles of work, check out his library, and enjoy some apple tart...Henri's graceful strokes are inspiring and he's truly a great teacher.
