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?

Sea, Sun, And Friends In The South Of France

October 22nd, 2015 · By Lynn

The end of September Patrick and I took a short holiday for a few weeks to the Côte d’Azur. It was a little crazy as we criss-crossed around France. First, we went down to Saint-Mandrier-sur-Mer, a small isle on the Mediterranean, to visit friends for a week. Jackie and Gégé call this place home for […]

Autumn Roundup

November 2nd, 2014 · By Lynn

I’ve had less time than usual these past few months and for a good reason.  My niece/god-child has been visiting us since August and it’s been a whirlwind three months.  We took her to both Normandy and Brittany and to a lot of the touristy places in Paris, although she was here before when she […]

Happy 92nd Birthday, Mom!

August 10th, 2014 · By Lynn

Today is my mom’s birthday and I’m happy to say she is still as active as ever!  She enjoys learning new things everyday and has her own Facebook page, email address, Skype account, and she enjoys playing Candy Crush (maybe just a little too much) on her iPad! Mom says one day she’ll be like […]

Happy Father’s Day!

June 15th, 2014 · By Lynn

Father’s Day is always bittersweet because my dad is no longer here.  It’s been many years since he passed away, but I think about him not just on this day, but often.  Some years ago, an old family friend of my parents mentioned to me how patient my father used to be with us “kids”.  […]

Happy Mother’s Day, Mom!

May 10th, 2014 · By Lynn

Some people think they have the best mom in the world.  I’m one of those lucky people, because I do!  She’s what has kept our family together all these years after my father passed away.  I wrote about her life in a post on Mother’s Day 2010. Mom working at Dravo’s shipyard. I wrote about […]

The Epiphany Or All Kings Day!

January 6th, 2014 · By Lynn

Our Christmas Tree before…. I always leave my Christmas tree up until the Epiphany, it’s a tradition that my family has had for years.  This year for some reason (I think because Patrick was ill and it wasn’t exactly the best of Holiday Seasons) I took the tree down right after New Year’s Day.  Then, […]

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 […]

Here’s wishing everyone a Merry Christmas!  Each year I find a beautiful photo to share for the holidays. This year I decided to take the time to post our tree. It’s my favorite time of the year, making cookies, wrapping presents, and singing along with the Christmas carols. You know, all the things that bring […]

First French Thanksgiving!

November 29th, 2013 · By Lynn

I’ve mentioned before that Thanksgiving was always the one day I would get nostalgic for home.  Over 40 years later, it’s still a day that makes me wish I was spending it with my family.  This year I did the next best thing.  I decided to celebrate Thanksgiving with my little Parisian family.  Friends I’ve […]
