"Close your eyes and tap your heels together three times.

And think to your self, there's is no place like home."
Wizard of Oz

It has been so very long since I have blogged and I have missed you all. I can't wait to begin sharing all of my wonderful adventures.  Soon, I promise...

But for today, I will be content with simply saying hello and sharing one photo...

We crossed a street, turned a corner on our way to The Orangerie and there in all her majesty was the Eiffel Tower.  My breath caught in my throat as I just stood and let the moment envelop me, sigh.

So very nice to be home,

Too bad I left my ruby slippers at home, because i had to make do with Air France and a 14 plus hour flight home : )

Au revoir, Hoşçakal, Yassas

We are are on our way...
Paris, Istanbul, Athens and Mykonos

Won't be taking my laptop on this trip but will have my iPhone and I found an interesting app called,
Pixel Pipe, which allows you to blog from your phone...LOL.  So if we are able to find Wi-Fi hot spots my plan is to pop in and say hello and give short travel updates.

My sweetie and I will travel together for two wonderful weeks, ending in Mykonos where I shall stay on for an additional week and attend, Cocoa Daisy's wonderful event with Ali Edwards, Jenni Bowlin, and Karen Russell.

See you all at the end of September if my blogging attempts fail...

a. an anniversary of the day on which a person was born;
b. or the celebration of it.

 Darling daughter is celebrating a decade birthday this year...
Vintage school paper, a vintage photo from a 1920's children's book, rub on quote, and a little piece of old lace with a ceramic heart brad.

A peek at the inside page
She was born to be a star!
And sweet granson, number one, also celebrated a special birthday as well.
Little bits of this and that to create a celebratory collage.
Happy Birthday from me to you!
Catherine...aka Mama/Grammy
