i’m not messing around

hi guys, happy summer! hope your week is off to a good start.

i’ve been on the down low for the past couple of weeks, maybe it was a combo of burnout from paris and coming home to miami and all that’s looming. still i’ve been busy and spent the past few days with my partner catherine in chicago working on the app and we’re finally at the last stage. i can’t believe how much work went into this but it’s going to apple for approval this week!

i thought you’d enjoy a small preview of some of the pics.

i love old flea pics.  just goes to show you how little has changed and  how much of the same stuff keeps getting passed around from generation to generation.

anyway i still have to go through the 3000 (literally)! photos i took in paris cause we’re putting out a photo book at the same time the app launches. truth is it was supposed to happen when i was there but guess everything in due time, right?

well, it’s after 2pm and i’ve got a pair of 6 year old nieces who’ll be expecting their fairy godmother to be up and at em when they are.

so i’ll leave you with these and bid you bonne nuit.

i’m glad you were here and  i’ll stop by chez vous too.  for now,  sweet dreams!

    Wow, really jelous right now, hmm when is the soonest flight….

    I am so excited about your app and about the fact that I found it at all. I was weaving my way from Paris blog to Paris blog and ended up here. I have an iTouch and my sister just got an iPhone (from work, no less, the lucky duck). We are avid flea marketers who are going to Paris in October with our sister-in-law for ten days and I am sure the app will just add to the fun. Thank you.
