A Year Ago Today – Trading “Climbing huge mountains to climbing ladders”

Just a few mementos of one of the happiest and most difficult days of our lives.  As, a year ago today, we climbed the Garlaban in Aubagne France and felt very very happy and proud that we were able to do this.  It was EXHILARATING – after we made it down, that is.  🙂   It was a 5 hour trek, to the mountain and down the mountain.  Sadly, my photos of that day have disappeared, except for the Christmas card.  I have no idea what happened.   But the memory is always there for us.

(Today I climbed a LADDER in the high end fashion retailer that I work for now in the United States.  I had to laugh, it’s not so high, but at least I can still go up a ladder!!! – I’d much rather be climbing mountains, however.  🙂


TWO YEARS AGO  – THIS MONTH – our grands, and my kids visited PARIS and it was the time of our lives!   What fun we had.  Here are a few pictures to capture those wonderful moments and we hope that trip has instilled a love of travel to far and wide places for the rest of their young lives.


Enjoy the photos.   We certainly have……….
