I've never read a graphic novel before, but I picked up Chicagoan Lucy Knisley'sFrench Milk at my local Borders because the cover was so cute (yes, I judged) and I wasn't disappointed. The book is a travelogue of Lucy's six-week stay in Paris with her mom. There are lovely drawings and photographs of Lucy's visits to museums and flea markets and a detailed account of all the food she ate. What's not to like?
I loved Julie Milligan's styling of the Sunset Soiree in the March '09 issue of Garden Design. I want warm weather (and that icy bucket full of champagne)!Outdoor entertaining!! Photography by Jack Coyier.
