As I write this I am surrounded by cardboard boxes and general disarray as we prepare for the big move tomorrow. We have had a wonderful holiday season; Christmas with family was all we could hope for and more; Christmas Day en amoureux, just us two was perfect. More photos are posted on my Photo Blog
Last night we had dinner with Lucy and her husband Loic; lots of talk about our resolutions amid the fabulous spread they had prepared. I so love the French way of eating in courses, the excitement builds as each new course is awaited, and is greeted with ooohs and aaahs when it arrives.
We had my homemade Punch-a-Cream as the aperitif, as well as three different wines with dinner, and of course champagne at midnight, so I was quite happy by the time we said good- bye. Lucy made Hoppin John' for us to have at midnight, as is the tradition in the Southern US states. Here's hoping it will bring us luck indeed!
And now it's back to packing. The internet goes out today, to be reconnected I-don't-know-when. This at least should give me a chance to get everything unpacked and put away without distraction, but once I'm done with that, I hope it will be back, because I can't promise not to have a melt-down without my connection to the outside world. In the meantime I am wishing you all the very best for this brand new year, filled with promise and potential.
