Dear friends and readers,
Congrats again to Naomi, Janet & Naveen for their winning of French gift packets in yesterday’s prize drawing!
I have been contacting each of the winners. I am hoping that the three of you will blog about it so I can reblog your posts That way, you can show your French goodies! :). I am honored to get to know you and your blogs.
This drawing was simply the way that my husband, and I have to send our appreciation to the friends and readers of this blog. You all have been awesome. Thank YOU for visiting,, commenting and enjoying the experience.
I feel that the time has come for a change in posting. Because , I am feeling the need to slow down and take time.
That does not mean that I will stop this blog; I will give myself the luxury of time. That means posting less but continuing to enjoy sharing some beautiful views of the world and the company of warm friends. There is Photography and there is life. Sometimes, they do overlap, sometimes, they are distinct.
To know me is to understand my challenges.
I have had many a challenge since 2010. Too many to enumerate totally… I would need many sessions of café therapy with each of you!!
I have seen my father-in-law painfully pass away in 2010, and my husband & I left with a family home to upkeep. In between throwing out half a decade of clutter and organizing our life,
I had to find what I now wanted and needed for me. And, it is an ongoing process.
Because, I had lost a part of myself. I had been for 10 years helping my elderly and widowed FIL exist. I did many tasks that he could no longer do because of his mobility and eyesight that were failing. As a consequence, a part of my life went on hold.
But, here we are at tomorrow and a it is a new era for me… I have been trying to make it, through my ups and downs.
Thank you again, for your kindness and understanding. It will be a pleasure to see you very soon and to read your blogs.
There are a couple of beautiful events coming up to create joy. One of them is a friend’s wedding in London on the 9 September. I will share with you some of this beauty.
See you on your blogs.
Be well and blessings to all.
Barb & Didier
