If it’s Friday, it must be France …
In September/October, Place Massena in Nice was our ‘front yard’ . Now it is filled with the beauty and excitement of Le Marché de Noël. I have a new addition to my wish list: one of these years I want to experience this!
If you have some time, listen to this delightful French choir ~ they seem to be enjoying themselves too. I know this might not be the time but I couldn’t resist adding it here … just in case!
The festive season is upon us in a serious way now. Our family party is tomorrow = 7 adult children plus partners, 6 adorable grandchildren ages 4 to 19, and my DH and moi! It’s always so much fun to have the entire gang together: the greatest gift all!
On Christmas Eve/Day we will all be together in various combinations with in-laws and other family/friend mixtures adding more joy and laughter to the holidays. Through the next week there are several gatherings with friends for a glass or two of good cheer. ‘Tis the season!
I’m taking a blogging breather for a week. No matter what I know I will still be writing for a few hours every day on the WIP … that’s the way it goes … but there will some good down time to just relax and enjoy everything around us. I hope you will have time to do the same.
Joyeux Noël! My warmest wishes go out to each and every one of you for a peaceful and joyful holiday season, whatever you celebrate at this time of year. Thank you for all the support and enthusiasm you have brought into my life this year. I’ve been amazed, humbled, encouraged and inspired, and can’t wait to see what 2014 will bring. At the very least, I hope we can all look forward to the best of health and happiness as we find ways to reach out to those less fortunate. Onward! Bonne fête, tout le monde!
