Patrick and I left the center of Paris at 10:05 a.m. on the Eurostar and we were in the heart of London by 11:05 a.m.!!! One hour from Paris to London! Okay, two hours really, but if you’re talking local time, then yes it is and you can’t beat that!

Two of my cousins came to Europe in February on a whirlwind tour of Amsterdam, Brussels, Brugge, and Paris. They couldn’t have chosen a better time to come. Uhh, that is if you happen to be Eskimos or you just love freezing Siberian weather! They froze their butts off even wearing 5 layers of clothing […]

I know, the race ended a few days ago, but still I keep thinking, What happened to the best reality show on television? Why wasn’t my heart pumping and the adrenalin rushing through me as if I was the one running toward Phil to claim my million dollar prize like in all the years past? […]

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 […]

Dinner with Patrick’s parents was anything but quiet and refined. We ate, drank, and had one jolly good time! (How often do I get the chance to use the word jolly? Almost never!) Patrick’s mom kept all of us entertained with her stories and antics that had us all laughing until there were tears […]
