Paris 2013, Part 1


Last month we traveled to Paris to visit our friends Rubi and Stanton and enjoy the city.  Each time I visit, I am stunned by the beauty that seems to permeate every part of Paris.  My last trip to Paris was in 2010 with my dear friend Naomi, and prior to that, 2003 with a group of fellow Art History students.    I'm glad that Dan and I were finally able to wander (and bike!) the streets of Paris together.

The Jardin du Luxembourg - one of my favorite places to spend time in Paris.  





Parisians and their Shadows



On our first evening, we rode bikes to Rue Mouffetard, where Stanton introduced us to the most delicious crepes at Au P'tit Grec.  We are still thinking about those crepes.

Sunday Evening With the Family

 Me and my siblings

Photos from a perfect Sunday evening in late April with my family.  Delicious food, birthdays celebrated, laughter, backyard shenanigans... I think the pictures speak for themselves.

An April Family Wedding



Last month, Dan's little brother Nathan married the lovely Alexis in the Salt Lake City Temple.  We loved spending the day with family - and the weather and flowers could not have been more perfect.  One of my favorite details of the day: Nathan's real bow tie.  The night before the wedding, Dan and his younger brother Seth watched YouTube videos with the groom to try and figure out how to tie the thing.  They succeeded, but only as a team.  Dan learned how to tie the first part, while Seth learned how to finish the bow.  Et voilà, the perfect brothers' bow tie!

On Our Second Date of Christmas


On our second date of Christmas we said hello to Christopher Columbus at the "Discovering Columbus" exhibit by Tatzu Nishi.  I had no idea what was in store.  Nishi designed temporary scaffolding and a viewing platform so viewers could get an up-close look at the Columbus memorial statue at Columbus Circle.  Little did we know that the viewing platform was actually a fully furnished living room in which to hang out with the statue.  Loved it.



Crazy about the wallpaper.




Afterwards, we walked across the street to have some Waffles and Dinges and watch the light show in the Time Warner building.
