Paris Without Danièle. Part Un.

I’m sitting here thinking about our upcoming trip to Paris next month. We’ll be leaving two days after Thanksgiving. It’ll be another short trip–but it will be for a different reason. It’ll be to attend a film premiere that Bonaparte’s cousin directed.

Still, I can’t stop thinking about that visit last year at this time. I miss Daniele so much. But–I know that her spirit is always with us.

If you are new to the blog, have a read–not only of Part Un–but of the next two parts that follow.

Thank you for reading. I love to share fond memories with you and this is a memory that is always close to my heart!!!!

Atypical 60

Hi all. We are back from what was the shortest visit we’ve made to Paris, the circumstances certainly not the best, but I want to tell you about our weekend.  I’m dividing this into three parts for your convenience.


I HAD to post this picture of Daniele because I think it is just such a beautiful photo of her.

Thursday evening, we boarded our flight, which, thankfully wasn’t delayed in any way.  Because time was of the essence, we only took carryon luggage.  We would have no time to waste in collecting baggage once we landed at CDG.

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!
