Oooohhh and Ahhhhhhh "French" Style


When I get overwhelmed like I have been lately I have to take a few minutes to indulge in the things that make me feel good.....rooms like these take my breath away and carry me to a far off place where life seems so much simpler...

A place where the only decision of the day is what will we have to eat for breakfast?




A place where perhaps breakfast will be served to me before the sleep is washed away from my eyes.....





A place that feels like heaven on earth...where the outside falls into my lap and feels completely calming and refreshing....a place that washes away the here and now and promises of better days ahead....







A place that feels luxurious and...... yet so comfortable and unpretentious....


A place like this I could call home....Honey not this year but maybe next this is where we will be...

"I LOVE YOU G-MAN"


HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!


Have a romantic one bloggers;)


Hugs French

French... I hear the heaviness in your heart friend...and am praying for your better day ahead to come! God loves us endlessly when things go great, and when things aren't so great! Our circumstances do not determine who we are, it's who we are that determines our circumstances! I have a little verse in a frame that someone wrote: "When God closes a door, He always opens a Window" Mere men write quotes, but I know for a fact that it's God who makes them come true for us! You are a talented young woman and "I KNOW" you will be diligent, and God will provide! ;) Have a blessed day Ms. French! You deserve it! ;) ~CC Catherine
