It all started with a care package from the States. Annabelle’s good friend Audrey sent a thoughtful assortment of favors and activities left over from her birthday party. Included in the mix were several hair accessories, including neon hair extensions and large tropical faux flowers. Annabelle proceeded to clip these items together and plop them atop Naud’s head.
I was busily making pancakes when I heard peals of laughter and turned toward the living room. The moment I saw Naud, all I could think was: Frida Kahlo. I begged for a little creative license and he not so cheerfully obliged. One flowery scarf, ruby necklace and faux unibrow later, we had ourselves a dead ringer. I knew better than to suggest lipstick. The man has limits.
one of these Fridas is not like the other
Finding Naud’s inner Frida made me laugh so hard I almost wet myself. I’m so glad my husband is a good sport although I think the red lipstick would have added a lot.
Once everyone (Naud) was back to normal, we headed to the American Library in Paris for their annual Valentine party, which was great fun. The bus stop near the library afforded us a sparkling view of La Tour Eiffel as we headed home to prepare for our first out of town guest, due to arrive later that evening.
