    Thank you for taking some decent pictures of yourself. It will probably take a couple more days for me to completely overwrite that initial image in my memory stack, so keep up the good work.

    Please remember to pace yourselves in the heat. After all, Paris is a city where we saunter rather than stride. My body is here but my heart is there with you.

      It was truly a horrible photo! But it showed exactly how I was feeling. Certainly not a poker face!!!

    Wasn’t the restaurant where we ate our last evening with y’all last trip?
    You look so much more relaxed!!! At least the elevator goes up😜. I can handle down, but NOT UP! Sounds like a truly fun filled day and night for the gals. It will be truly memorable.

    Linda, it looks like you have already recovered from your hard travel and checkin day, judging by the lovely photographs in today’s blog. I confess that I admired the “I’ve seen it all, I’ve done it all, and now I just want to put my feet up and rest my head” sophistication of your first-day photo! Thanks for sharing your time in Paris with us!
