Lots of Travel!

The travel just continues! After a great weekend in Martha's Vineyard with my PlatinumGrad2 Mastermind team, I was back in CT for what seemed like the first weekend in months at home! We had a great time being together and heading to the circus - the kids loved it! We went apple picking and just enjoyed spending time at home with family and friends.

Hope you enjoy the photos and big hugs to you!

What a Week in Miami!

We had an amazing 8 days in Miami. As many of you know, I was there for my Inner Game of Abundance Mindset Retreat ( and it was a huge success. Derek and I spent the rest of the week with the kids and other participants of the retreat lounging by the pool, swimming at the beach, and going to some really nice restaurants in South Beach. Here are some photos from the week.

Hope you enjoy the photos and big hugs to you!

Busy, Busy for Me!

We've had a few busy last couple of weeks here. Getting ready for the Mindset Retreat in Miami, a Glazer/Kennedy event in Baltimore for 3 days, and spending time with Derek and the kids during some not-so-great weather on the weekends. We had to keep ourselves busy with some really nice lobster dinner and a ice-cream social for Claire's kindergarten school. What fun!

Hope you enjoy the photos and big hugs to you!

Claire goes to Kindergarten

Today Claire had her first day of kindergarten. It was such an exciting day for all of us. We had Luc and Derek with Claire and I as we watched her board the bus with the rest of the kids in our neighborhood and head off to school. We're so proud of our little girl as she starts this important part of her life!
Hope you enjoy the photos and big hugs to you!

My Birthday!

Last week we celebrated my birthday here in Stamford, CT. We had Derek's Mom visit us for a few days from Newport and spent some "chill" time down at the beach and having a really nice lobster dinner at home. No big parties for me this year, but it was nice to spend a relaxing couple of birthday days with family and friends. Derek surprised me with a nice dinner out on Thursday night and a "special" gift that I've wanted ever since I was a child growing up in Paris. So sweet!

Enjoy the photos and big hugs to you!

Week in Las Vegas

The whole family and I spent last week in Las Vegas for David Neagle's ERS. It was a great time and we really enjoyed being able to spend time both with Derek and the kids and some of my closest colleagues/friends. The weather was *so* hot and dry, not like the weather we usually have back here on the east coast. We spent almost every day at the pool, either for lunch with the kids or on the days off from the event. You can check out more photos and videos on my Facebook link.

Talk to you soon and big hugs to you!

Boating in Newport, RI

We spent last weekend with my extended family in Newport, RI. We had glorious weather for both days and really enjoyed spending time with Derek's family (Mom, Dad and sister plus kids.) It's great that my in-laws have a *really* nice boat for us to relax on and watch the kids go swimming in the harbor. Oh, and who can forget the lobsters and steamers!

Talk to you soon and big hugs to you!

4th of July

We had a wonderful 4th of July in Stamford, CT. Our close friends joined us for the weekend from NYC. The fireworks display on Thursday night was great. Although the weather didn't cooperate with us being able to spend time down at our neighborhood beach, we still had a magnificent time enjoying our company in the backyard with bbq, cool drinks and lots of fun!

Talk to you soon and big hugs to you!



Enjoy the photos!

Here we are all ready for the neighborhood parade for the 4th of July.

Luc sure does look patriotic! Got to love the red super cape, too!

Claire did a great job with the streamers on her bike. We couldn't find her bike helmet so the winter ski helmet did the trick.
