an afternoon at the museum // touring musée d’orsay with @parismusetours

While lazy baby seemingly hits a new milestone every day, last month, I hit a few of my own — and fittingly, they happened in Paris! Margot and I survived our first solo travel day together AND our first night away just the two of us… which also happened to be our first solo night ever. I feel like I need this on a t-shirt. To be totally fair, it wasn’t as adventurous as it sounds. Jeff took us to St. Pancras on his quick lunch break, where we caught the Eurostar, and my sister met us at a sweet little apartment in St. Germain first thing the next morning, fresh off her flight from…

le château de la napoule // a photo tour

After our incredible stay at Le Majestic, my body physically rejected leaving — seriously. Somewhere along the way, probably at one of the beachfront restaurants, both the hubs and I contracted food poisoning. This meant I spent the first official day of my 30s cooped up in a hotel room that did not even sort of compare to the one we just left, taking care of an 8-week-old while the hubs spent the day bouncing between meetings… on YACHTS. Listen, I don’t even know who had this one worse, and I’m being serious. Breastfeeding an infant when you can’t keep anything in your stomach is no picnic, but I don’t think you could have paid…

#lazybaby on the go with @LittlePeanutOTG

Like all first-time parents, I spent the week leading up to our first trip with Margot wondering how the hell we were going to function in France without every single thing we’ve gotten used to having on hand for her at home. I’d wake in the middle of the night in a cold sweat, shaking over what we would do without our changing table and nappy bin and bassinet and boppy and THIS SERENITY STAR?! I kid. Mostly. That Serenity Star is awesome. Luckily, Le Majestic made our lives generally easier, but unfortunately, once the hubs’s conference started, we relocated halfway through the week to a hotel that did pretty much the complete opposite. That’s…

because we cannes // lazy baby at le majestic

We made it! We took our 8 week old on a plane, flew to another country, spent a week on the French Riviera, and here we are: back on the other side. Older, wiser, and a little more confident as parents. I have plenty to share about the logistics of our first trip as a family of three, but first! I must sing the praises of the Hôtel Barrière Le Majestic. [ photo via barrière hotels ] Despite getting out the door a bit later than we’d planned, Margot was a dream from the start of our travel day to the moment we touched down in Nice. She slept the entire flight, and I learned…

travel announcement! #lazybaby’s first adventure…

I realized yesterday that I haven’t been on a plane since the end of November, and I haven’t left London since the first week of December. Parenting DOES change you, it turns out. This is the longest stretch of time I haven’t traveled since… I don’t even know! Luckily, as of Saturday, that is all about to change. We’re getting out of our little London bubble, and heading off to celebrate two big birthdays next week: Margot’s 2nd month, and my 360th. In case your mom-math isn’t so great… 30, here I come! Cannes you guess where we’re heading?! OUI, Margot’s first visit to the continent will, appropriately, take her to France, and more specifically,…
