Bon Voyage!

Happy Friday, all! What are you up to this weekend? I know a couple of friends are feverishly packing for a trip to France -- a few days in Paris and cycling through the Loire Valley with their families. Très fun!

Say hi to the Eiffel Tower for me, ladies!

A view from the Hotel Crillon. Pretty nice...

... and a sketch I did from the window of the very tiny, quite shabby and a little scary hotel where I stayed on my first trip to Paris. All things considered, I'll take the Crillon. But an Eiffel Tower view improves just about anything, don't you think?

Have fun Jill and Julie! Happy weekend, everyone!


  1. Ahh Paris... Why are you so far away? ;)

  2. Enjoy your days in Paris ♥

    I'm seriously ENVIOUS...

  3. My in-laws just arrived at their hotel by the Tuilleries...a week there and then Tuscany, Como...ahh!
    What are the blogs you follow for Paris? I know I've asked before! I remember Patricia Wells but I think there is another one you had recommended?

    We sat out on our back patio last night and grilled pizzas and ate outside. Jane put a balloon on our mailbox and said we were having a party! The kids said they remember always eating outside in Seattle and loving it.
    It's just too darn hot here in the south but we did it and thought of Italy and that we need to get there together someday!

  4. Happy Weekend....I never tire of images of that beautiful tower!

  5. Oh I envy your lucky friends. I have the French travel bug bad!! Love your pretty watercolor. Wishing you a bon weekend!!

  6. Hello,

    Have a very nice weekend in Paris.
