By Day and By Night

• 06 August 2009

I hope you enjoy this little update...I went to great lengths to take this photograph :)

First, I climbed up a steep hill; then I opened a ten-foot gate; and proceeded to climb atop the old city wall (4 1/2 feet in width) before lying down on my side and propping up my camera on a rock. A few people watched as the "crazy lady" took a few shots. Oh, and I did this all in a skirt :)

Can you feel the love? Hope so.


1. 3rd story/master suite painted (all but the door)
2. 2nd story almost completed (what you see in the image);
3. electrician coming tomorrow to install towel warmer (common in France) and air conditioner (very uncommon in France); in fact, I'm not sure I've ever experienced air conditioning, in France, in a residence. I hope our guests love it on hot, summer days! I know I'll sleep well tomorrow night...
4. trip to Bordeaux planned for tomorrow; hitting Zara Home, BHV Deco, Habitat, IKEA; should be interesting! Oh, and a bit of antiquing for an hour en route as well. I'd better get to bed...


  1. LOVE the photo! It was totally worth your special efforts to capture.

    Sounds like you've got a busy busy day planned tomorrow. Definitely sneak us a photo or two in Zara Home if you can!

    Wishing you a day full of happy children, fabulous finds, and an outstanding exchange rate!

  2. Oh my goodness, please sign me up for a week right now! I'm in love.

  3. I am impressed both with your capturing the moment, and with Ben working late into the night! You two are amazing. lots of love!

  4. Thanks for the effort - I definitely did enjoy it. I'm loving reading about your journey. I know you capture it all in this blog but someday you should write a book, too. Your journey reminds me so much of Under the Tuscan sun, one of my favorite books! Blessings to you and your family!

  5. Zara Home? I am pretty jealous. Have lots of fun for me.

    And yes, the picture was worth it.

  6. The picture was worth the effort, what an amazing photo.

    We miss you here in Canada!


  7. Love the update. Your place looks amazing:)


Thanks so much for taking the time to drop a line. I really appreciate it!
