four & twenty blackbirds and maman







my time with my maman was just so wonderful. she was glowing the whole time. we spent a few days in brooklyn the weather was hot and the days flew by. I was spoiled by my mum in every way. right on the corner of our gorgeous apartment in park slope was a month old cafe that has become peoples favourite and that is where we started our mornings-'four and twenty blackbirds" i loved everything about the place and found inspiration for our hopefully soon new addition to our house.

I would like to post some of our time in brooklyn, boston, montreal in this week. I cannot do any of that if i do not say the following.

maman you are so inspirational to me. you are the love in my life. today i received an email from you that was by far the most beautiful, kind and gracious-those things are visible in everything you do. I know how lucky i am for spending time with you, for being able to say i came from you and that i am your daughter. I learn so much about how to live a kind life. hearing you share your stories with deb brought me to tears and i found myself wishing i had started to ask questions about your life sooner. I will count the days till our autumn getaway. all my love.

Take you my darling, I think much more spoiling happened on your part than mine, I enjoyed every minute like I always do with you.
I can't wait for the autumn either.

She's the sweetest little thing! You're lucky to have such love in your life. The first photo of her is a portrait in the true sense of the word...it really says a lot about her although I've never met her.
