My Friend Teri's Blog About Paris Is Up! Won't You Pay Her A Visit?


Oh finally!! At long last! Yay!!

You may remember that a little while back I did a blog post in honor of, Teri, a sweet friend of mine who I'd been poking and prodding to start a blog of her own (about Paris)....


Well... guess what?!

Teri's blog is now up & running and I am SO excited that we will all get to see her incredible, moving stories of her times in Paris unfold -- for me and for you!

Her first post is a story of something that happened to her that, as I first read it, it made me cry.

It made me cry because it was as though she'd stepped into my own heart and mind and written down what she saw, heard, and felt there.

I've had almost those same thoughts so many times before and when I read her words, it was almost like my private thoughts and feelings had been exposed...

This is Teri and her writing...

This is why I so wanted to share her with you...

Teri is a budding writer -- though I hate to use the term "budding" for her since her writing is so much better than that of someone who is "budding" in their efforts.

Oh the stories I've heard from Teri -- some make you howl with laughter, some make you tear up with inspiration, and some simply make you want to drop what you're doing and pack off to Paris to get your own dose of what this lady comes back with each time.


Let's all give Teri a warm blog-land welcome now that she's joined us.

Won't you pop over to her blog now, and read her first-ever post and click to become a "follower" -- you'll be so glad you did, you won't want to miss even one of her posts as they will now start coming.

From one friend to another...

Ruth,
You are too kind!!! I hope I can get cool pics up and make the blog look different, but I figured if I don't just jump in, I never will.
We'll see how it goes.

Thanks!!!!!
Teri

Well this is going to be an unusual comment for you :P

First off, I'm a man and while your house/products seem very lovely, that's more your thing and less mine :P

I did however just spend a good chunk of time reading through your blog back 'til November of last year after JUST NOW finding it. Why?

Frankly your music that started auto-playing in the background was AWESOME. That is why. First that Parov song (KissKiss) started playing and I had about 10 windows open and I was like WHERE is that awesome song coming from? And then when I saw you had Bjork on the list.... quite frankly I was blown away.

So from a guy with about ZERO interest in your fashions hehe (except that I would be one shiny dude if I had that messenger bag) nor am I a "sister", please know you have more fans than you think ;)

I live in Europe and can sight read most languages, therefore it is with a saddened heart that I must help you with your French :P

Chez beaucoup de gens l'esprit brille au dépend du coeur

You translated the word esprit as HEAD when it is actually "spirit". Just a "heads" up for ya ;)

Keep up the awesome music choices!

Pop Quiz: Can you guess how I even originally FOUND your site? Hmm :P

Hi Thurston,

Thanks SO much for your comment! I'm glad to have found a musical "kindred spirit" (l'esprit) ;)

ANYTIME you want to help/correct my feeble attempts at the French language, feel free!

To answer your last challenge, I have no guesses on how you stumbled upon my blog -- but I'm glad you did! :)

Thanks Thurston!
