A postcard from Paris!

I was having a perfectly crummy day - you know the kind when everything seems to go wrong...woke up with a lousy headache (even tho I suspect it was some food I ate last night), incessant disturbances all morning, door bells, phone calls, one thing after another, wanted to start gift wrapping, could not find the tape etc etc - well all in all it was going horribly UNTIL.....I got a postcard in the mail from my niece studying this summer in Paris! What is it about getting a postcard that brightens up your day IMMEDIATELY???? And that too from a far away romantic place like Paris!!!
We had been chatting online a few days earlier and I had told her my favorite place in Paris (when I visited wayyy back in 2000 for my 20th wedding anniv.) was the Cathedral at Notre Dame and she had sweetly picked a postcard with that to send to me! Well when I saw it all the wonderful memories of that Paris trip came flooding back and I quickly pulled out my album and looked at all the pics we had taken back then! I even pulled out 2 prints of the Eiffel Tower and the Arc De Triomphe that had been sitting inside...so now I have a Paris collage in my studio!

Well, needless to say my day cheered up considerably....! Thanks Mallika!







And here she is....my 21 year old niece Mallika!

I went to Paris for my honeymoon..it is a cliche but I agree that there is nothing quite like it :-) Hope you have a good week and feel better soon.
