Side Gigs


Beautiful Paris! In 2016 Cynthia, my partner in design crime, and I went to Paris for the weekend. We were charmed to death. Many silent looks were shared, sharing unspoken thoughts like "I can't believe we are here," "How is this place so beautiful?" "Why do we live in Chicago?".

A most notable moment from our trip was the man in the crêpe shop who would steal little tourist children off the street, place them on a stool in his tiny kitchen window, and have them "Voici!". He even had the kindness to pretend that he understood my studdering attempts to order and pay for my food in French. Pardon Monseur, vous êtes un bon homme!
