Waiting patiently

You can go ahead and ignore this early morning photo of me.
In fact you should ignore it, but OH what a background.
A couple of years ago at this time, we were patiently
waiting for Carnavale in Nice.

A lovely place to wait if you must wait.

Waiting for the bleachers to fill up.
Waiting for French fun at its best.

But right now, we are waiting for Jeff, Dorothy and the ladies to arrive later this week.
Even Tommy is patiently waiting.
I can honestly say that I am more excited about seeing my
Soldier son and family
than I was seeing Carnavale in Nice.
I guess that makes me a true Grandma-hehe!

While I have been waiting, some changes
have been made to The French Elements website.
It has truly been "Frenchified"
by Victoria.

I'm so excited about it.
She is lovely to work with.
She even fixed my blog.
Notice the yucky brown has been replaced with
the beautiful blue sidebars.
I've been trying to get that done for months.

What do you think?
Am I Frenchified now?

You are all frenchified, my dear! Gorgeous!

I am so excited for you to get your sweet Son home and get to see the family! Enjoy every moment, even the wait:) Hugs!

You blog looks BEE-U-TEE-FUL! :)

And the picture of you does too! :)

I just found you blog, while blog hopping. I did not see it before, but you do look very frenchified.
Your Hailey is very cute, also.
I hope enjoyed Nice and your children.
Have a blessed day.

I'm really loving your new blog look--lighter, fresher and definitely with a French flair.

And what more can I say? Nice--one of my favorite places in the world!

C'est beau et charmant ton blog! And first stop for my first visit to France. I will never forget the blue color of the shore; it was a blue like nothing I have ever seen.

Barb, I wish you the best family reunion and fun with your loved ones!!! Anita
