We were just in Strobl, Austria, where we hosted our son Tassilo’s christening with 50 of our friends and family. The ceremony was at the village church (where Tassilo Sr. and six other Von Furstenberg members are resting in peace). We had a lovely lunch afterwards, in the house that Alex’s family has had since 1881. That is also where the whole lot of us stayed while in Austria.
Now we are in a beautiful house in Saint-Tropez, where we are staying until the end of August. The best part is that all of my sisters and their children are here with us, and we are just having a great time. Among all of us, there are nine children, so to be at this amazing house right on the sea and watching all my nieces and nephews and my own kids running around is just a blast!
