The days are passing quickly

Freshly squeezed tangerine/grapefruit juice from the neighbor's trees

Tomatoes, basil and fresh mozzarella

 The oleander are especially pretty right now

I thought I'd share a few pretty colors around the house with you.  As if I haven't already, I am going to take a blogging break.  We have a lot going on and I just can't get into the mood for writing. 

Always this time of year, things get a little hectic for me.  I like to have a schedule and traveling always throws me off.  We will be heading north shortly.  We will be visiting my brother and his wife, my niece and family and then further north to spend time with daughter #2 and family.  Then flying to France and spending three weeks in one of our favorite places in the world.  We are very excited to have plans  to meet a blogger who lives in Provence.  We also will be staying very near the Mediterranean, so seafood will be on the menu often. 

The trip will end with 4 days in Paris.  We will try to see what we missed on our last trip to this beautiful city and again repeat favorites such as the Eiffel Tower.

Then we will be heading further West in the US to visit more friends, daughter #1 and family and then to Montana until the fall.

Organizing a wardrobe for all these climates can be challenging, but we always seem to pull it off.
I am planning on blogging about our trip after I get back from Paris and then off and on as the summer continues.  I will be checking in on your blogs after we are back in the States.  Bientôt
