Snowed-In Weekend – with Jumi, Sean & Ayumi

Being snowed in with Thibaut’s friends Jumi and Sean with their daughter Ayumi was a cozy retreat with french cheese, champagne, brown sugar-glazed salmon, quinoa with brussels sprouts and raisins, and butternut squash. Ayumi served endless tea, cupcakes and waffles all night and in the morning (after we had real waffles,) Thibaut & I read her favorite stories and taught her how to draw a duck. It was a pleasure meeting such kind and generous people.
