After a week of glorious springlike weather, the gray damp chill has returned. But you can't stay inside all the time. Like all proper Parisians, these ladies didn't leave the house without looking their best.
For a long time, we were just another typical Washington, DC family: two policy-oriented jobs, two kids, and two cars. Out of the blue, my husband got a new assignment; we ditched the old jobs and the cars (but kept the kids) and headed to Paris for what started out to be a three-year, and eventually became a four-year tour.
