Friends, have we discussed how ridiculous my timing is? Who in the world goes to a conference right before a major move? Hah! Today, before I catch my plane to Alt Summit, I am squeezing in a trip to the dentist. In fact, over the next week or so, we’ve scheduled dentist appointments and pediatrician check-ups for everyone in the family. We want a clean bill of health before we head to France.

But here’s something pretty to look at while I’m on the plane. I have a thing for dishtowels and the vintage-inspired collection at House8810 is terrific.

P.S. — I really want to tell you everything I learned about the visa process. I’ll try to get a post up tonight.
