Paris: part duex

4 Mar

So as this long, hard Winter begins to wind down, Gary and I have been talking about taking a vacation since our trip in the Fall was cut short due to the death of a dear friend’s mother.  And, we both said we should go back to Paris.  We were having a fabulous time until we received the awful news.  So, that’s the plan — we just have to figure out when.  Europe has been hit with their fair share of bad weather this Winter so we want wait a bit, but, want to avoid true tourist season, and, we’re thinking the end of April or extremely early May.  After all doesn’t the song go ♪♫•*¨*•.¸¸♫ I love Paris in the Spring time ♪♫•*¨*•.¸¸♫♪ 😀









And… drum roll please… We (Gary and I) have received an invitation to attend Royal Ascot, and, I couldn’t be more excited about going!!  This is something I always wanted to do because I LOVE hats.  So, this is like letting me loose in a candy store, but, several of my good friends like T.R. “Tina” Threston and Wellington Harris will also be going and we have a private section with drinks and food service provided by our host Sir Dennis 😀

One of my quests while in London is getting to Lock (it’s a hat shop, well, I take that back.  It’s THE hat shop in all of London) and I absolutely adore their hats.  They are truly pieces of art!  Check this one out — it’s called Jive.

So that is the latest news from my end.  I haven’t blogged much since the holidays because they only to write about was the snow, and, I’m tired of it.  Time for Spring, and, nothing says Spring and Summer better than Paris and Royal Ascot.  Don’t you agree? 😀
