a moveable feast

good morning all, happy wednesday! it’s great to be back stateside and i’m readjusting to my little world. the time change woke me good and early to catch a sunrise and spend some time on the beach playing around and reconnecting with home.

fortunately lots of the stash was waiting when i arrived but my apartment looks like a warehouse of boxes and bubble that’s been transplanted from our paris apartment to miami. truth is the french post office was a great way to ship and i recommend it if you’re sending boxes back when you go. they just can’t be over 50 kilos (whatever that is, it’s a lot) or over 2 meters in size over all). you can get boxes and bubble at bhv in paris. anyway  the phone is already chirping and ringing and the inbox is downright mad but i wanted to say hello and thank you for being there throughout the trip. i didn’t get a chance to comment back  but it was so much fun to have you with me! needless to say i brought stuff for you so send out as tokens, and i have NOT forgotten about the last batch i was supposed to ship either!  it was just that things got crazy. so if you sent me your addy a couple months back and didn’t receive anything yet, you will!

till then it will be unpacking like crazy, i’m sure  the it will look like an episode of hoarders in here soon, but it’s my french feast

the phone is relentless so i have about 30 seconds and wanted to pass along something that has been a fascinating new change. i came home to a boyfriend who cut his long hair, dropped 17 pounds and went from eating a despicable diet to  fresh juicing. it’s not the kind we do at home, it would be impossible to have this array of ingredients and combinations, not to mention it’s cold pressed. (apparently the shiz)!  i fell right into the cult and in two days we’re having these delicious drinks whenever we’re hungry. it’s a thrill to see such a transformation and joie de vivre in him that i couldn’t help but jump on board. we can’t get enough of them, and when we do eat it’s no longer about heavy meals and desserts. so refreshing and an incredible shift for both of us! check out the menu on the link. they ship anywhere in the us.


ok, well duty calls, have a beautiful day!

    Welcome home! When you get settled in, I’ve made a slide-show of photos of our part of the trip (and I was not very good at culling, so there are a LOT). I can’t believe he cut his hair! Can’t wait to see him. I hope we will see you guys at Thanksgiving, by which time we should have a new PUPPY!

    Hello Claudia,
    Sorry to have missed you at the Paris lunch! I had no idea it was a mini blog meet but it was my exhausted day. I thought it was just you and Vicki and were able to have a jolly good chat alone. It sounded wonderful and if we recover from this trip maybe another year we will meet up again. Highly impressed with the juicing, good for you (and your guy) and thanks for the link. Feeling french-carb heavy though mentally re-charged. Happy unpacking! xo

    hi sande! i was truly disappointed that you didn’t make it but completely understood needing a day off! we did have roaring good time and next year, we’ll all be there, it’s a date!

    Good to see that you are back home and that all is well, Claudia. Good luck with your packages!
    I love the photos – and like other commenters – I enjoyed travelling with you :)


  8. The Paris Apartment replied:

    hi paul, i looked forward to hearing from you on the trip! often thought about you and hemmingway’s paris…case in point, today’s title!

    Even though I am well aware that your work can be tiring, as well as enjoyable– for me, it just seems like a fantasy. I said it once, and I’ll say it again, I wish I could just tag along and watch. I can only imagine!

    And, I’ve been pondering the “juicing” for overall health. I watched the video “Fat,Sick, and Nearly Dead”. My brother has been juicing for quite awhile, and swears by it. I feel I must try. xo
