took the long way home

hi everyone! thank you for your sweet comments, i can’t wait to come and visit every one of you. that’s probably going to be the best thing about being home.

last night it was virtual reality to arrive back in surfside, so i made a frenchy bed to feel paree

and today i’m sorting out my mountain of sources (another good thing about being back is that i’ll actually have some time to do it).

oh and by the by, o mag likes liz’s house so we’ll be documenting that…another great reason to be back. so it’s already not so bad! thank you for the love!

    There is no place like home and your own pillow! It’s a skill to find the silver lining and you seem to have that down! Welcome home, Claudia.

    Surfside sounds pretty cool – glad you are back safe and sound.

    C, I hope that things are ok with you and your loved ones. You are a breath of fresh air and so completely inspiring through your example of holding a positive attitude through all of this. You are welcome in SoCal anytime!!

    Oh Claudia,

    So sad for you to have to leave Paris so suddenly! But when things like that happen to me– ie. sudden changes in *my* plan– I always know that God is working his magic in my life… even if I’m not always the most gracious of beneficiaries!
    Sounds like you are already looking in the bright side, and it takes a special person to be adapt so quickly and able to see that when one door closes, another always opens!


  8. Vicki replied:

    Glad you made it home safely…hope all is well.

    Thank you so much for sharing your adventures and beautiful photos with us. There are moments I think..oh to take off and experience the wonderful places you have. Then I come down to earth and think..Oh please I’m way too lazy and attached to my feather bed not to mention the book on the night stand and who in the world would ever put up with my demanding Jack Russell? Glad to hear your home safe and sound.

    I hope all is well. I think you are such an inspiration Claudia. You have handled this with such grace. Welcome home. You are in my thoughts. And I can’t wait to hear what’s next!

    Bonjour Claudia,
    I just got back from Paris myself last night, spending some days with my husband.
    So I know what you are going through right now, hope all is well with you back home.

    La Laudree was just around the corner in Saint Germain, beautiful stunning place.

    All the best,

    Claudia, I so respect the fact that you never see the glass half empty and you never spend too much time staring at the pile of lemons on your table. You just get to making lemonade:-) I was so worried when I read about the forclosure and then had to just drop everything and head home. I am so happy and relieved to see how upbeat you are no matter what. You are fabulous my darling! I send huge virtual hug in your direction!

    Beautiful photos you took while there.
    Your blog is making me 2nd home sick!
    Have a wonderful week catching up!
