May Days

I've missed sitting here writing and sharing with you. I've missed sitting if you want to know the truth.

May is the month of sunshine and flowers, birthdays (Clementine's) and our anniversary (14 years!) but if you're French or living in France, it's the month of making bridges. I told you all about this perk of French life last year.
This month there are four bank holidays, therefore four bridges, and therefore four weeks of three work days.

Tuesday, May 1st 2012: Fête du travail or Labor Day
Tuesday, May 8th 2012: Victory in Europe Day (thanks Grandad)
Thursday, May 17th 2012: Ascension
Monday, May 28th 2012: Pentecôte

This all means I have had a lot of kids and P-Daddy keeping me busy and away from this spot.

Plus, we're in the midst of working on something fantastic and exciting, especially for our family and friends and those of you who are back home in the States.We just got back from Ireland where we worked on part of it and this upcoming weekend will be spent filming here in France. I can't say anymore until later but it's so fun!

In the meantime, here are a few of my favorite May things.

  1. How is it that we end up feeling as if we need a vacation from the vacation!

  2. Happy anniversary we too were 14 years this April <3

    1. Jacqui,
      I remember and took note that we were on the same trajectory. Love, love and more love.

  3. Happy Anniversary and I hope you'll still remember us when you're famous :))

  4. "Happy" to all....glad to see you're back, too.

  5. happy anniversary! happy may! and thank you for telling me what all these holidays are (and thanks to my grandad too!) and your secret sounds very exciting!

  6. Happy Anniversary Aidan and P-Daddy, Happy Birthday to the adorable Clementine (great picture) and Happy numerous May holidays et faire les ponts! The holiday on the 17th has caused a small issue with our move to Charente, which is happening the day before, but all seems okay now. We have 4 May birthdays in our family so I know the time it takes! Can't wait to hear about the tv show.....

  7. Yaay for all those French holidays in May. I am totally soaking them up. I don't get the bridge days though :( Totally bummer. Working for an American company here means no bridge day for me. I'm still lovin' the extra day off though. Congrats on your 14 years. You look cute in your photo!
