Lifestyle & Musings

I hope you had a lovely week.  I spent most of my week putting away summer things and brining out fall clothing, faux fur blankets, throws and pillows.  It still feels like summer other than the dipping temps in the evenings.  This weekend, I look forward to spending time with my best girl, Isabella, and doing a little shopping for autumn and winter necessities, getting together with girlfriends for dinner and perhaps a bike ride if I can pull myself away from doing absolutely nothing on a lazy Sunday.

Bonjour mes amis!  I hope you’re doing well.  We’re home from our yearly Disney World vacation.  Although it was a wonderful, our favorite family holiday together, it’s nice to be home.  For us, our time in WDW is non-stop fun and adventure, and we come home absolutely exhausted.  We couldn’t wait to see Coco and Bogie and they were thrilled to have us home.
