      Thanks, Cindi. We’re excited as always and have the new apartment to look forward to.

    I can’t wait to see pictures of the new apartment. And maybe, just maybe, you’ll be able to work the oven!

    When we go to the beach, I have a “beach box” full of spices. We eat out a lot, but that gets old when you stay so long. Wonder which of us takes the most? We’re never more than a month.

    Have a great trip.

      Yes, indeed, hope to be able to work the oven! This apartment is much smaller so will be some adjustment. There are trade-offs for the space. 7th floor view, an elevator and on rue St. Paul which we love. Hard to find a spot as good as our other apartment. Just too many steps for me this year with my still-healing knee.

    Jeans, t-shirt, Air Jordans. Oh yeah, and a toothbrush. So what’s the big deal?

    bonjour Linda,
    I’m sharing your excitement about returning to Paris – my absolute centre of the universe. I’m making plans to return before the end of this year, to show my city to my fabulous (newish!) partner Neil. He’s not seen France. I look forward to reading your stories. Bon voyage.

      Bonjour Gai,
      I’m turning my body clock around so up very, very early cette matin. Glad you are following along. How’s your book coming? I’m in query mode for mine. Thus far, just rejections. Ugh!
