Joyeux Noel


Thank you to everyone for all of your wonderful holiday wishes and comments.  I am slowly getting caught back up on life...very slowly!

Yesterday I was up at the crack of dawn and headed out to finish most of my Christmas shopping.  Then it was back home to put up and decorate the tree, and by the time late evening arrived I was tuckered out.  Today I am paying for it, and after a few impressive coughing fits I decided to just take it easy today and let Mr. Tide handle the vacuuming...thank goodness since our company will be here soon.

While I was lounging, I decided to put together a little slideshow of some Christmas'y images I captured while in Paris.  It truly was magical being there this time of year, even if the weather was not ideal, the decor certainly didn't disappoint.

So that the file wouldn't be overwhelmingly large I made the images low res, so sadly they are much blurrier than the originals, but hopefully it will put you in the spirit none the less.  Watching it makes me a little wistful, and if my whole family could have come along, I would have gladly stayed in France right through the holidays...maybe one day.

I hope you are getting ready for the big day, and that you will take a moment to simply enjoy the season...it only comes but once a year!
