have you never been mellow


why do  i love this ridiculous pic?

hi dear friends, i’m sorry to have dropped out of sight for a while. it was a true case of overload, burnout and over stimulation all at once. i’m not the multi-tasker i used to be, but at least now when it’s time rest, i go down and stay down. there is of course, always so much going on, trips in the works, clients, unpacking, collaborating…sometimes it’s a little overwhelming and i need to just space out.


i was starting to feel like the house above! now a little more like it below. (not sure which is before and after). anyway, this post is for no other reason than to just say hi. it feels like years since i’ve been able to blog and visit and just hang out with you.

i was with my bud liz looking up a web designer, bill livingston. i started finding these pics shown here was saving them on my desktop. creating more stuff to do and why? there are so many images on my hard drive that i can’t even go there to look through them these days!


but well, they got me here today, so guess there was a reason after all. i thank you guys for being here and promise to get back in the game, i’m feeling re-charged already just being here. hope you have a beautiful, mellow, summer sunday!

    Hugs to you, dear Claudia! I think many of us are singing the same sad song. I am just finding a little time today to get around and visit my favorite bloggie friends – it’s been a whirlwind. It’s good you know when to stay down. Rest!
    I hope that your day is slow, lazy, and full of all the things you love.
    xo Isa

    Oh, I can see why you’ve saved these photos. They’re wonderful! One could write an entire novel around each one.

    I wish you a restful and most enjoyable Sunday!

    Dear Claudia,
    Rest up dear lady. I think many of us are feeling the same…. After I attend or work a show like NYC, I have to clear my mind for several days. Enjoy some well deserved time off and silence.

    Dearest Claudia,

    I’ve missed you, yet I completely understand! Life is so hectic, and I need a break too!

    I’m thinking a bottle of bubbly and some Spanish guitar music would make me a really happy gal right now!

    Here’s to a simple Sunday!



    • theparisapartment replied:

      spanish guitar sounds like heaven right now, i think i’ll join you! what are you listening to?

    thank you for this entry! happy to see you back… i feel the same feelings of overwhelm sometimes. i have found that keeping my blog posts shorter, more simple and to the point has really helped. i’m not so hard on myself if i don’t post something life changingly interesting :) good thing you never have that problem! yours are always interesting!

    just surround yourself with good food, family, and friends, and you’ll rest up in no time!


    • theparisapartment replied:

      i had to laugh at your comment, amy, i’m glad you think i’m interesting, that makes me feel really good!

    Hi Claudia,
    You definately need to take time to recharge or your batteries will just go dead. I’m just back from vacation on the East Coast and looking forward to catching up on your blog. We visited Connecticut, Rhode Island and New York and I was in NY City on the 24th and 25th. Too bad I didn’t think about meeting up with you. I would love to meet you sometime. You are one inspiring business lady.
