snail mail

here is an idea:

keep track of incoming and outgoing mail

{just the fun stuff}

you have to admit, it's so much fun to receive a real letter

flipping through junk mail and bills to find that one treasure

 let's keep the joy swirling around the planet

write a letter and see what happens - you might just get hooked like me !

thank you to all my faithful family and friends
who have sent me love in an envelope for so many years

so thankful for paper, envelopes, postcards, postage and stickers =)

the ballet

my dance studio put on an end-of-the-year show
Oz, le Magicien

Marie-Christine, Nancy, Diana and I enjoyed a lovely evening.
Maybe next year, I can dance in the show !

Ballet is one of my first loves.
I've been twirling for years.
I'm so thankful to have found a place to dance in Nice.
Hoping you enjoyed a bit of our girls-night-out.

new furniture

well, it's new to us anyway =)

this replaced...
 ...that little stand in the far corner under the TV

this replaced...
...the little cupboard on the right in the entry way

and this beauty replaced...
...this extremely impractical piece along with another make-shift shelving unit

 YES !!!

Goal: not to fill them all with junk.
Pretty easy for me since I'm really good at throwing stuff away =)

Thanks to Tonio and Fabrice for carrying them up the stairs.
And thank you all for stopping by the house.

Dear Daddy...

I love you !


Happy Father's Day !
Love your Linz-o-matic

ps - to my other family members, 
namely Tanner and Chelsey, 
please forgive me for putting these "oh-so-flattering" photos online.
I'm glad we all grew out of our awkward stages.
