I Love Paris

My very good friend and co-worker Judy has just returned from a wonderful trip to France. Her son married a French woman and the wedding took place in Bordeaux - in a chateau! Can you imagine? Well I can because I saw the pictures! For those of us that have only dreamed of what France looks like, let me tell you that it is tops on my list of places to visit! They started in Paris, which looks just as I imagined with the magnificent architecture and sweeping views. They then traveled down to Bordeaux stopping in a few additional wine regions. Oh I wish I had the photos to share with you! I knew her return to work would be difficult so I made her the above sign and hung it from her computer - because a little crepe paper and glitter certainly makes up for being in France wouldn't you say? NOT!

Yes, I'm afraid a trip to Paris will not be happening for me anytime soon.

But a little crepe paper and glitter always makes me smile. :)
Your sign is lovely!

My friend wanted to be in Paris for her 50th birthday... she didn't quite make it. So we had a
'Oui~Oui Loretta is Fifty!' Event.
It was so fun.
I'll post the pictures soon.

Hi Karla - you are such a thoughtful coworker. I bet she really appreciated it when she returned to the drudgery of work. It's a very cute sign! Also, I tagged you for the name game. I hope you haven't been tagged yet. Come by and take a look.
