How has your week been so far? We’ve finally cracked and bought a new car. Looking back, it's pretty amazing that we've managed all these years with a toddler in our two-door convertible! It's been fun for Rosie to grow up with the wind in her hair, and this mammoth road-trip was once-in-a-lifetime-unforgettable, but now we're graduating to a seven-seat SUV...
The awesome and unexpected twist in this acquisition is that our new (second-hand) car is in Nice, and we are not. So we’ve decided to fly there as a family, collect the car, and drive it home along the French Riviera. Justin looked at cars for sale all over Europe in the hope of finding us a good deal. Of all the places he could have ended up finding the right car, this has worked out pretty darn great :-)
This will be our first time visiting Cannes, Saint-Tropez, Marseilles, and Montpelier. Please let me know if you have any tips in the comments below. We have had zero minutes to plan this little adventure, so any suggestions are extra appreciated. XO

Have you seen The Disaster Artist? Directed by, and starring, James Franco, this tragicomic had us hooked. I love a true story, and this one is so bonkers it's brilliant.
I've been on a major reading binge recently, and really enjoyed this book. It's the story of six remarkable women (Eleanor Roosevelt, Helen Gurley Brown, and Eva Braun, to name three) from the perspective of their relationship with food. It's intimate, insightful, and novel.
There's lots of news about domestic robots but, in case you hadn't heard, the world now also has artificially intelligent plants. Introducing bons-AI.
We had family staying this past week and really enjoyed this burrata and melon salad. It's perfect for lunch now that the weather is warming up a bit!
