proust q & a…little brown pen



Little Brown Pen was one of the first blogs I fell in love with. Capturing life beautifully and soulfully, Nichole Robertson’s writing and photography are an inspiration to me. We share a love of Paris, and butter. So, without further ado…her Proust questionnaire….and many thanks to Nichole for getting this off to a poignant start.
