It’s All Maya!

If Life is an illusion, then why do I keep banging my head against the wall?

Si la Vie est une illusion, pourquoi je n'arrête pas de me taper la tête sur les murs?

Christmastime Once Again!

December 3rd, 2011 · By Lynn

This is the first Christmas Patrick and I will spend in our apartment since returning to Paris.  In 2009 we packed up all our things and shipped them back to France, so that year we spent Christmas at my mom’s house in Pittsburgh.  Wonderful memories with Katarina, mom, and the rest of the family playing […]

When The Family Comes To Town!

October 29th, 2011 · By Lynn

(Part One) Aunt Dolores resting after a long trip. Time passes so quickly and it’s already a week that my mom, sister and aunt were getting ready to return home after a whirlwind trip to France and Switzerland.  It was great having them here, but before you knew it, they were heading home and the […]

Sometimes When You’re Late, You’re Early!

June 5th, 2011 · By Lynn

Years ago, in the States, Patrick and I were going to have dinner at a friend’s place.  Dinner was at 6:30 so I was ready to jump into the shower around 6 p.m.  After all, who eats dinner at 6:30?  Having spent a good part of my life in Europe where dinner didn’t start before […]

Happy Thanksgiving!

November 25th, 2010 · By Lynn

There’s so much to be thankful for this year!  And once again we will not be having the usual turkey, stuffing, pumpkin pie, etc. for Thanksgiving!  What we’ll miss most of all, however, is being with loved ones and sharing a meal together which is really what makes this holiday so special. Instead, Patrick and […]

A Moveable French Feast!

June 29th, 2010 · By Lynn

I know, I know, Hemingway was speaking figuratively when he spoke about Paris being a moveable feast, but for the past month since arriving back in France it has literally been a moveable feast!  We have done nothing but travel  throughout France eating, drinking, and socializing with family and friends. We arrived in Paris and […]

Napa Valley and Sonoma – Wine Country

February 26th, 2010 · By Lynn

Of course we couldn’t go to San Francisco and not head up to Sonoma and Napa Valley!  The weather wasn’t cooperating, but the  countryside is so beautiful there.  In any case, we had our minds set on drinking wine!  Years ago when I was living in Marin County, a friend and I use to head […]

6 of us went to New York City. 8 of us flew to Texas. 10 of us traveled to Phoenix. 6 of us continued on to Las Vegas. So when the decision was made to fly to San Francisco, you know it wasn’t going to be just Patrick and I getting on that plane!  Nope, […]

“Rude-nella” Opps! Lunella Restaurante New York City

January 24th, 2010 · By Lynn

Okay, so another person came up with the name, “Rude-nella”, describing Lunella’s restaurant in Little Italy, but the name is so appropriate when talking about the place, I just had to use it! We had been walking all day, from the Statue of Liberty to the financial district, over to Ground Zero, Chinatown and finally […]

Not Enough Hours In The Day!

December 22nd, 2009 · By Lynn

Busy, busy, busy!  Christmas parties, Ari’s birthday party and the Steelers’ game at my twin’s.  And what a game it was!  It looked like all was lost up until the final 3 seconds of the game!  Roethlisberger threw a 19 yard pass to Mike Wallace like a repeat of the catch Hines Ward made to […]
