We met in Strawberry Fields, the garden dedicated to John Lennon in Central Park, on a scorching hot day in July. We waited for a little while awkwardly on opposite sides of the little garden before finally finding each other. Our only visual sense of each other were the blurry, far away photos that we had seen online. Oh yes, a definite highlight of my recent trip to New York was that I got to meet my sweet friend and fellow artist Lucile Prache from Paris and her two wonderful teenagers, Jeanne and Werner.

we are at our glamourous best but we sure do look happy!
And speaking of birthdays, my sweet and funny Chloé celebrated her 13th birthday on July 7th while we were in New York. I had trouble finding a 'normalish' photo of her. She seems to specialize in dramatic, crazy expressions these days. (I don't think she'd disagree.) I like this photo, even if a little hazy, taken with my iPod Touch the night of her birthday dinner at Otto. (We liked the restaurant so much we ate there twice.) Hard for me to believe that my youngest baby has turned into this tall, zany, beautiful and talented teenager.
And just to complete the family picture, here's a photo of Emma and Chloé on Broadway.
And a photo of Jocelyn and me taken at the top of the Rockefeller Center with Central Park in the background.
