A Paris Frame of Mind

Hello From Paris!

I’ve been here a little over 24 hours, and I’m not sure I know what day it is, much less am able to factor in the time difference between here and the US.

The friends I’m with have been here since Sunday. They’re over jet lag and are ready to eat, drink, tour the city, shop, see the museums, eat chocolate, go to the jazz clubs and drink more champagne. The only prayer I have of assimilating is by hydrating—with water—and going easy on the wine and champagne. Even so, I’m clueless as to the date and time. I guess this is what vacations are for: to chill, decompress and not think about the “to do” list that awaits for my return.

In the meantime, this is all I have for this week’s Brenda’s Blog. I wish you all lots of love, and remember to be the kind of friend you want to have. #MakeLifeCount

Love, Brenda

    Have a fabulous time, my friend! I understand the jet lag. I’m sure you’ll be well cared for.

      Hi sweet lady! Thank you! I’m having a blast. Didn’t have a clue how badly I needed this time away! xoxo, Brenda

    Enjoy France. It should be a magical time!

      Today’s been the magic day! I’m in a chateau in the country and have stayed indoors–all day–coloring and eating French pastries! Just what I needed after three frantic days in Paris with little regard for sleep! xoxo, B

      Hi Cathy,
      This is the first time I’ve gotten online since Thursday! I’m enjoying myself more than I could have imagined.
