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?

Happy New Year 2018!

December 29th, 2017 · By Lynn

Each year New Year’s Eve is special for various reasons. One year Patrick and I braved the cold to ring in the new year on the Champs-Elysées with over a half a million people, another year Patrick and I decided to stay home and dance the night away, and one crazy year we froze for […]

2014 – A New Year!

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 […]

Jack O’ Lanterns It seems I just took down the Christmas tree and I’m already thinking how I’m going to decorate our tree this year!  After all, when Halloween arrives, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s are all just around the corner.

Happy New Year 2013!!!

January 4th, 2013 · By Lynn

2012 went out beautifully and 2013 came in just as lovely. Patrick and I declined invitations to ring in the new year among friends. Instead we opted to stay home and have a quiet dinner just the two of us. To work up an appetite, we walked around le Bon Marché and admired the windows […]

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 […]

Happy New Year 2011!

December 31st, 2010 · By Lynn

Katarina, Holly, Patrick, Rose, and Joey Last year I was getting prepared to stand for 10 hours in the freezing cold to watch a ball drop for ten seconds along with over a million other people packed together like sardines in Times Square!  My sister Rose was asking who wanted to wear Pampers in case […]

And So, The Adventure Continues….

October 25th, 2009 · By Lynn

The one thing that I will miss here are the long walks on our private beach, where our dolphins appeared to us everytime I let out a high tone whistle.  Patrick use to look at me like I was crazy when I would pucker up and whistle as high a note as I could muster, but […]

A Good Start To The New Year!

January 3rd, 2009 · By Lynn

Patrick and I danced the night away into the New Year until almost 5 in the morning!!! We contemplated going out to dinner or having dinner in and then dancing! Actually Patrick though about it; I was more than willing to have Patrick make dinner for the two of us! The menu was exquisite.  We […]

Looking For A Different Holiday?

December 23rd, 2008 · By Lynn

Patrick was talking to a Russian friend of his about the holidays and we got to talking about Winter Holidays outside the norm.  The norm of course depends on where you’re from. It goes without saying, Paris is not exotic to Parisians, nor is New York to New Yorkers. One of the many exotic places […]
