A New Look!!

Yes, it's true!!! After 18 months (18 months tomorrow, to be exact) of white-on-black, I'm going to have mercy on the eyes of my faithful readers! :) As I reach the bench-mark of 4600 hits (at least, 4600 since I got the counter ;)), I've decided to change my template!

Goodbye to the old:

And hello to the new:

Whaddya think?? :D

Happy Birthday, Linds!!

Twenty-two years ago today my older sister was born... of course, I wasn't around to know this fact, but it is a fact just the same. :D Today, on her twenty-second birthday, I am in Paris, our other sister is in Normandy, half the family is at home in St. Mary's and the birthday-girl herself is on retreat in Phoenix!! (What a good way to spend a birthday, eh? Sounds good to me!)

So, I just wanted to wish her a happy birthday!! Her last birthday as a "single girl." :O

I hope this is a good day for you, Linds!! Best wishes for the next 22 years!!!!! :D I love you. God bless you always.

This Time Two Years Ago

September 9, 2004... ...Rose was starting 11th grade.

September 12, 2004... ...we were celebrating Lindsey's 20th birthday.

This Time Last Year

Wow!! Was this really only a year ago?!?! It seems soooo long ago and almost as far away. (A bit of history for the photo: I was just having fun doing a "photo shoot" - something I love doing :) - with my bro and sis... I think Joey was falling asleep on me! :))

Hello from France!!

Hello, everyone!!

I left the States two weeks ago yesterday and arrived in France two weeks ago today! It's been a good two weeks so far, for the most part. Rose left home yesterday and has probably been in France for an hour or so as I write... that is, if she didn't miss two flights like I inadvertently did!! ;) Welcome to France, Rosie!!!

I've just updated my year-in-France blog, so if you'd like to see pictures of Cluny and an old chateau in the south of France and stuff like that, head on over to An American in Paris! :D See you there! :)

Au 'voir!
Monique :P
