To Elizabeth, from Paris

Side Street in Butte aux Cailles, Paris

Side Street in Butte aux Cailles, Paris


Today Clive and I had the pleasure of meeting a number of Paris bloggers and/or expats (at last count, I think it was twelve) over lunch in the Butte aux Cailles quartier.

The famous Leesa  of News from France did her usual wonderful job of organising the group. At our end of the table, we enjoyed talking with Serena, Mel, Andrea, Anne from Oxfordshire Anne’s friend Caroline, a young woman who worked for the same company I did (apologies I didn’t note her name), and KimB from Sassiland. We missed Barbara from Home in France, who’s recovering from surgery. Barbara, take care of yourself and we’ll hope to see you next time!

The group photos are all on Leesa’s camera, so we may see them when she gets her computer back. (As I understand it, it’s with an IT expert who’s helping it recover from a software error.)

In the meantime, since KimB and I ‘met’ through the lovely blog of Elizabeth Harper, Gifts of the Journey, we thought of Elizabeth today.

Wish You Were Here - Maybe Next Time

Wish You Were Here - Maybe Next Time

Elizabeth, cheers to you and John from your honeymoon city.

  1. You two are so great! What a sweet surprise for me.

    I’m really smiling and laughing right now thinking about the fun time you must have all had.

    I wish I was there too.

    Thanks so much for including me.

  2. All credit goes to Carolyn, who thinks of everything! Even in the midst of a baker’s dozen of bloggisti and friends. Isn’t she great?

    We did wish you were here, it was such fun and you would have enjoyed it. Still sorry we’re flying from different airports on the 24th of next month!

  3. p.s. the young lady across from me, a Russian-American married to a Frenchman, and with a beautiful one-year-old daughter, is Dasha. I’ve already had an email from her this morning!
