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?

November 2nd, 2014 · By Lynn

May Roundup

May 31st, 2014 · By Lynn

The best kind of flowers are those that are bought for no reason except that they’re pretty! Patrick and I had so many outings in May, I thought I would have time to write about each one, but it wasn’t to be.  It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words, well I’m glad […]

The Voice – Toujours Les Mêmes Habits!

January 29th, 2014 · By Lynn

Patrick et moi aimons regarder The Voice et chaque semaine Florent, Jenifer, Mika et Garou portent toujours les mêmes habits!  Incroyable que l’équipe de production n’aie pas pensé à ce detail si important.  Ouais, je sais que l’enregistrement se déroule le jour même pour plusieurs émissions. Mais, ça aurait été tellement simple aux vedettes de […]

January 1st, 2014 · By Lynn

The end of 2013 didn’t go exactly as planned.  Patrick got bronchitis the morning that we headed back to Paris from his parent’s home in Normandy.  It was the day after Christmas.  We thought he would be better by New Year’s Eve and we planned on partying with a bunch of friends.  Well it didn’t […]
