Merci and Thank You For Your Condolences

In a few minutes I’ll start to pack for our trip to Paris.  It isn’t going to be our usual kind of visit.  There is no jumping up and down in excitement.  There will be no planning on what sights we will be seeing or which restaurants we will be dining at.

We will not be driving randomly around Paris at strange hours of the late nights into early mornings.

It will be a different kind of trip. We will be giving our farewells to Bonaparte’s aunt, Danièle.

Before I start to stuff more than what I probably need into my carry-on, I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you.

Thank you to all my blogger friends and friends who read the blog for your condolences and kind and loving thoughts.   This little community we have is a true family and I so much appreciate all your words. Bonaparte is also very touched.

I will leave and I will report back in a few days of our celebration of life!

Hugs, kisses and many, many thanks! XOXOXO!

About Catherine

Far from perfect, but enjoying life as a non-perfect and flawed individual at 60 years young. I'm still wondering what I'll be when I grow up! The characters in my life's screenplay include my better half. He is a refined Frenchman who grew up in Paris and summered in St. Tropez. I grew up in Long Island and summered in Long Island. I am not refined. My three grown children are also a big part of my life. For their sake, they happily live where their careers have taken them! But I can still mother them from a distance! I write about the mundane. I write about deeply shallow issues. But whatever I write or muse about--it'll always be a bit on the humorous and positive side! It's all good!
