Olive Us: Betty in Paris

Surprise, surprise, I woke up to another grey day in Paris. But there’s something about the grey that is just so Paris. So many photos and postcards you see of Paris are sunny and perfect, but a certain charm is missing from the reality of days. When I watched the latest “Olive Us” episode with “Betty in Paris” I was hooked from the very first Amelie-esque scene. Then I realized that the charm really was in the way that colorful Betty in red and blue stands out against the “blah” Paris. The Blair family – all 8 of them – is an American family living in Normandy for over a year now and their adventures are chronicled on Gabby’s blog, Design Mom. “Olive Us” is a video series in conjunction with the fabulously talented Tiger in a Jar that captures so many simply delightful moments about their life in France (and sometimes their travels). They’re all great but this episode is seriously beyond adorable!
