Happy Thanksgiving

 I am ready for family, friends and food!

Oh give thanks unto the Lord for He is good: for His mercy endures forever.  Psalms 136:1
I broke out my collection of napkin rings.  Tip ~ Fluffy napkin top always faces up.  

 Then I just added layer upon layer of vases, flowers and clippings from the yard.

 Velveteen pumpkins and fall Fitz and Floyd characters make the table fun.  Lunch will be at noon, but candles will still be lit, because my motto is "that it is not a party till the candles are lit!"

 Everyone enjoy your holiday time together.  Black Friday I will be at Home Depot when they open, live greenery wreaths and garlands!!!

Our morning in Paris

We spent our first morning in Paris by ourselves. Then we had to check in for our cruise on the Seine River from Paris to the Normandy beaches and back.  For a WEEK!
 Our walk to Notre Dame Cathedral was gorgeous, just a little overcast.  I love wrought iron and was in heaven with the detail on all the buildings.

 Notre Dame did not disappoint either.

 Remember from my previous post, where we saw St. Chappelle at night during a concert.  Well, I convinced hubby to go back the next morning.
So glad we did!

 The entire chapel is surrounded with floor to ceiling stained glass.
 We were in awe!
 And below is my little old French lady impersonation. I just needed a baguette in my hand to finish off the presentation.

Ironing...I'm weird but I love to iron

Wasn't everyone up last night and ironing napkins while watching Dancing with the Stars?!
and... my last napkin left.  I bought these before we left for our trip and of course had a set to give every lady in our group that traveled together.
I really do love to iron.  I guess the immediate satisfaction of accomplishment is what I like.

The beginning of our Paris trip

Now, I feel like I can show some of the beginning of our Paris trip.  Let's just say it was fabulous.  Hubby and I went in a day early before the rest of our group of 12 friends.  In hindsight, we were so glad we did, since we had to cut the trip short on the way home.

 We dropped our bags off at our hotel and headed out, making sure not to nap from jetlag or we would never wake up!  The love locks have been removed from this bridge, the wieght was becoming too heavy for the old bridge.  They have left sections walking up to the brige. 
We walked past the Louvre on our way to Angelina's for a late lunch.
 And when a Parisien tells you it will take 15 minutes to walk somewhere, in English that means 30 minutes.  Because, they live there and don't stop to take pictures at every turn.
 Hubby being a trooper!  Waiting for me while I was in the gift shop.
 Now I wish I had brought a bottle of hot chocolate home with me.  They do have an online shop!
Our afternoon walk, which thankfully burned all the calories we consumed at lunch, was gorgeous!

I purposely bought concert tickets for a four piece string group at St. Chappelle, just a few blocks from Notre Dame.  I was a bit disappointed that the stained glass windows were not lit from outside to show the colors.  But still even dark at night they were still a sight to see.  I knew attending a concert at 7PM would help to keep us awake.  Small world moment, probably 75 people at the concert and sitting right next to us another family from the Dallas area!  
Our walk home at night was amazing too. 
Up next, our morning walk and Notre Dame and those St. Chappelle windows with sunshine!  Then we headed to check in on our Seine cruise longboat.
