Waving Goodbye

My parents were working on the house as I was packing for school.  Dad kept telling me I probably had time to help them out...which made me pack all the faster!

The Last Dinner Party

Last night I invited some of my favorite people and had one last hoorah-rah before I start classes on Monday. We had a wonderful evening sitting around the table, drinking wine and Modelos, and telling great stories. I love my people!

I guess since we've had a little bit of rain, I've been thinking about fall which makes me think about last fall which makes me think about France. I'll be sitting at my desk working and all of a sudden be overwhelmed with a memory of France. Not so much an exact memory, but more a memory of a sensation -  like the feeling of sunshine while we sat at a cafe, the noise of crowds, the smells of my aunt's apartment, or just the warm feeling of being with my family and having a wonderful time. It's the sensation of traveling and adventure, and I miss it. I"m thankful for the trips I've had and I look forward to many more!

Here's a pic that Nina took of Grandma and I as we walked to Mont St. Michel.

Butterfly Catcher

The rule is that you can't catch people or dogs. Everything else is fair game.
