Hello, I'm Elizabeth.

I am a Francophile who enjoys traveling, balloons, Björk, peonies, Paris, creepy turn-of-the-Century photographs and doughnuts. I am happily married to a handsome, talented artist who loves Thundercats, ice cold milk, air conditioning, Radiohead and wants a baby donkey. We bought our 1923 California bungalow in hipster Highland Park. We are restoring our home into it’s former beauty. I began blogging out of boredom to rant about my life. Then I became pregnant with our daughter and the ranting turned into raving. I am unapologetic about the millions of photos I take of our lovely, rad kid. She is obsessed with Michael Jackson, painting, dancing, dressing up like a princess, riding her scooter, eating chocolate croissants and watching Adventure Time.
Currently, I am a stay-at-home Mom/blogger hobbyist and before that I dabbled in hair & makeup dark arts. I enjoy crafting, throwing parties, making my house pretty, photography and baking.

Thanks for stopping by.
