I've Been MIA for Good Reason

Bonjour dear friends! We just returned early this morning from 5 days in Paris.

Weather was perfect the entire week so there was lots and lots of walking and sightseeing.

From the Eiffel Tower to Notre Dame.


We had a lovely time but it is always good to be back home. Time to tackle the laundry and prepare for back to school on Monday. We traveled through the night so I can barely keep my eyes open and it is only mid-afternoon.

I look forward to catching up with everyone soon. Hope your weekend is a good one. Best wishes and blessings, Tammy

"Five days in Paris" sounds like the name of a movie. I think I've said this before -- lucky you!!!!! Have a good weekend! Jan

Oh my GOODNESS, Tammy. I was wondering what was up. Never would have thought you were on a trip to Paris. Sounds great. You sure do get to travel! Good for the kids, too. Take care and have a great,resting up weekend, yourself! Susan from writingstraightfromtheheart.blogspot.com

I wondered where you were. Paris! How lovely!! :)

Glad you had the chance to get away and have fun.

Here, it's just been school - we already finished our 3rd week and in just a couple of weeks, they're at mid-terms already. I'm kind of glad that we've got this much behind us already and are well settled in the school mode.

It's a 3-day weekend here of course. Some of the hottest weather of the season started September in Illinois, with school needing to close early due to the excessive heat. So, they moved the football game to tonight - Saturday night - but it's still near 100 today...

I hope you will get enough sleep - and I send my best wishes for getting back to school on Monday!
Warmest hugs, Traude

THAT'S where you were! How lovely! I see hubby in a suit, so supposing he was on a business trip? The kids are getting so tall, too.

Lovely to see Paris from your lens. I haven't been there since 1990, but it looks the same!!

Hope you are getting some much needed sleep and I look forward to seeing more pics of Paris!

I was wondering why you were so quiet and you were just aound the corner a few miles across the English Channel. Looks like a great trip.

MILLY said...

Paris looks beautiful, lucky you. And no doubt cooler than home. It is that time of year, school starts again and summer is over.
Thank you for the lovely comments, the quilt will find a new home, but I will wait and see where next year 2012 OLympics.
Have a relaxing weekend.

Welcome home dear!! We traveled all day yesterday too and got back to Doha last night. I promised myself I would give myself a day to rest, but looking at all the bags today made me nervous, and before I knew it, they were all unpacked, put away and empty. I can't help myself... I have a bit more organizing to do, and then the cleaning begins.
Looks like you had a wonderful trip. I look forward to seeing more pictures and hearing more stories very soon!!

Glad you are back in the neighborhood!

XOXOXO
Renee

What a perfectly beautiful and VERY acceptable reason to be MIA, Tammy! Lucky you! Aaaahhhhh...5 days in Paris...what a treat!

Glad you're back home safe & sound...sometimes it just feels so good to be back home that even laundry doesn't feel like a chore--just so good to get back to normal.

Wishing you some very good rest and a lovely weekend, dear friend!
