I can hardly believe that it's been a month since I posted to my blog! In real life (as opposed to on line life) the time just seems to go by so quickly that by the end of the day I have nothing left in me to get on the computer and write or read. Do you know what I mean? Blogging should come from the heart and not out of obligation or for popularity after all.
That being said, if you are here and choose to read about what I've been up to lately I am honored and quite happy!
First and foremost have been family matters. If you have been a reader for awhile then you probably know that we have two wonderful daughters who are in their twenties. We have been empty nesters for awhile now, but one daughter has recently moved home to the family house here in Miami (temporarily, hopefully)....so we've been helping her get settled back in. Her decor style is modern....much more so than mine, but she has great taste and set up a nice little nest for her stay here.
Our other daughter is about to move to Paris (temporarily, much to her chagrin) for a fabulous work/learning opportunity, and will be there until the end of the year. She's leaving in a few days, and moving out of her cute art deco South Beach apt....
Into a Paris apt that does not look like your typical Paris apt at all....but nonetheless will serve her well for her stay so far from home. If I tell you that I spent 3 weeks pretty much full time trying to find her an apt in Paris to suit the budget...it would not be an understatement! Affordable apts in Paris (yes...as in Paris, France!) are very scarce and then when you come across one it seems to be scooped up in an instant! Here are a few shots of the place, courtesy of the agency that I was working with at New York Habitat....
Will I go? You know my love for France and Paris in particular....so we will see, I simply haven't decided as of yet.
I've also been busy working on revamping my website at Shabbyfufu and it's finally finished!
I hope that you have a chance to visit and come back and tell me what you think. You can click on the website name above to go to the site......we've loaded it up with some pretty and romantic items and made it easier to navigate.
I'll be back soon with a giveaway.....this is my 250th post!
