Welcome to the weekend view
Coming to you this week from incredibly beautiful & inspiring Paris.
Can you believe that I am writing this blog post from a charming little hotel in Paris? Such a dream to be in this beautiful city doing a bit of work and a bit of play this weekend and
so the weekend view will be about Paris- and a bit short and sweet.
I have been wandering the cobblestone streets, sipping coffee and I even found peonies at a French flower shop.
I will be sharing all about our trip- including the most beautiful apartment to stay in and what places we have explored soon. And what I have learned that I didn’t know before.
Small luggage living
Something funny, I actually packed everything into my carry-on suitcase and my handbag for this trip. And it is actually less than I usually pack for quick trips in the U.S. Not quite sure how I did that- but I will let you know how those only 2 pairs of shoes and capsule wardrobe packing works out.
Of course, beautiful blooms are a must everywhere- and in Paris- peonies seem to be even more beautiful than usual if that is even possible.
While we are having a bit of fun working and playing here- back home is busy at the house.
We have family staying with Sweet Pea and house sitting- and a bonus- they are helping us do a bit of work while there. We are getting ready to repaint the entire outside of the house and cottage- fences, window boxes -you name it. And they jumped at the chance to make a little extra money while there. They are starting on the paint prep work- removing window boxes and scraping any loose paint, washing siding, etc. and doing some indoor paint prep as well.
Though painting is the easiest way to update a room or home- the process to get ready for the paint to go on is a bit of a job and we are grateful to have their help.
Sweet Grand Dogs
And just look at that face… a little stinker that gets into trouble but such a sweetie. Jade is enjoying lounging on the sofa pillows and running around the house chasing the Sweet Pea currently- and of course looking innocent while doing it.
Coming your way-
All about Paris and our travels- including where we are off to next.
