Update: I was just reading through one of the blogs I often visit, La Vie Petite.  It is written by a wee thing about my size who has four kids and a fabulous fashion sense.  Most days she has posts about clothes and her children (“littles” as she calls them). 
Her post today was different.  It was emotional and painful.
I am glad that she wrote it and shared with us, strangers from all parts of the world, her miscarriage.  I hope that writing it and receiving support at home and far away will give her some strength to get through it.  Personal blogging isn’t all about exhibitionism.  Some use it for purging all of the swirling, maddening thoughts and knowing that someone else out there sympathizes if not understands completely.  I am grateful for these outlets and communities.

I’m a total planner and this last minute madness is making my head spin. I don’t know the language, the sights, or the customs. I didn’t even have the time to check the weather over there til yesterday (freaking freezing, by the way!). My plan is to have a croissant in Par ...

Lindsay’s European Adventure
“Can you drive stick?” was the only question my friend, Tish, asked on a Thursday when he offered up the opportunity to go to Europe for a week. I didn’t know any of the languages, any of the customs, and while I had thought about putting more stamps in my passport before wedding season, this wasn’t even on my radar. That Saturday night I was boarding a plane to Paris. I am still waiting to wake up from the dream that 2012 has been so far.My head was spinning on the way over. I was grinning from ear to ear, drinking miniature bottles of gratis white wine with my own row of seats and feeling like the luckiest person in the world. “Giddy” ...

Away
Sorry I won't be around for the next two weeks. I am going to Scotland on October 20th, returning to San Francisco on October 29th and flying out to Connecticut a few hours later to shoot a wedding on Halloween.Unfortunately, my trip to Scotland is not one for fun or weddings, but to see my grandmother who has been struggling with dementia for the past few years and now looks to have lung cancer. She is actually my namesake as her maiden name is Lindsay. I'm looking forward to seeing a lot of my family since my grandmother had 12 children and I have lost count of the cousins I have all over the world.Hopefully I'll be back with a few pictu ...
