Oh! That’s right! I live here. Or did. And I have a home, a very cute “cottage-y home” in Overland Missouri, actually it’s Saint Louis.  We have been here for as long as Gracie has been born…..almost 13 years.  She just turned 12.  It was so beautiful to see all of the family, all who reside in greater Saint Louis.  I could tell you that my family is the greatest and the most talented and the best looking and shower so much love to the offspring that they have been blessed with, but all that’s a given. And then you would tell me that, “Sorry Marti, but mine fits that description and it is not possible  that more than one fits that description so I’m afraid it’s my family.”  HA!  And that is fine, because that, actually is the way it should be.   We all have a very special and individualistic place in our hearts for our children and grands and nothing and no one can change our minds about our very own.  

So, with that said, I am blessed – blessed – blessed to have the family that I have, and though I will miss them immensely when I return to France, we are all “techi’s” more or less and with e-mails, Skype, i-movie, Facetime, videos, etc – we stay firmly connected – even 6,000 miles away.  PLUS, 5 of them are coming to the Oldfield Apartment in PARIS this Spring.  How lucky is that?!?! 

Till my return to France and resume my blog –  – – – – – – To All – a Happy, Glorious, and Prosperous New Year!

    That’s a great “warm & fuzzy” blog about the family.
