19 February, one year ago and two year ago

Just showing my blog on request of my 7 years old daughter !
And while looking, just felt on (tomber sur) this post, made one year ago:

We were in Amsterdam and I just feel in love with this coat. Turned out I did not dare to buy it… It was in a fairy shop next to the Daam and the Krasnapolsky !
No regret, just good memory!

Then I though let’s look what I posted around same day 2 years ago!
Turned out I only started my blog less than 2 years ago.

The closest to then was March 2013

Why Paris Lux | so parislux !

What has changed! A lot an not much!
Family grew as we welcomed a dog! Middle size ! 43 pounds! Around 19kg same weight as our second daughter ! You saw him on some of my post !
Wordless Wednesday! Once upon a dog! | so parislux !
https://soparislux.com/

Crazy as we travel so much! It s our life, I guess!
Our dog did not come on all our travels but most of them, south of France, Italy, Paris, Amsterdam, New York, Miami, Luxembourg of course! Woodstock !

Once, I was discussing with a friend of mine saying it was quite crazy! How our pupie friese stabij came from a farm in frieseland holland, and became a world traveller! She answered! Your dog is so lucky! I would rather be at the place of your dog to have such a life! we had such a laugh, right after! Especially coming from another globetrotter !

What else, we made the big jump over the pound*! As my cousins from Florida always say! (* pound is the Atlantic Ocean )
Splitting our life over the continents!

I can’t stay mute regarding the terrible world actuality ! We have to stand up straight! Keep our value high! Believe in democracy and its values, respect one an other! Stand as one against terror, not taking excuses for more atrocities!
For once miss world, universe or any pageant of any kinds favorite quote is adequate : “I wish for a world peace”!
Let’s act for it! The efforts of each of us added together may help!

I very recently lost my “french” grand-ma, it left me speechless ! My reasons to reach out to Europe are for the moment getting thinner and thinner! For now!
I do think she lives through the memories we have of her and for all she gave to all that had the chance to meet her! She was a passionate woman that gave herself completely to the one she loved! I was lucky to be one of them as all the member of our family! She adopted my husband as her own grandson and was present for all our children. She was Grand-Maman and Nona, she was a mam too and a woman!

A woman who taught and passed her passion of learning to at least 4 generations!

She would taught all she knew to whom ever needed it, or wanted it!
Once I came to her in Paris, rang the bell, she opened the door, her cleaning lady was sitting in front of the piano! She had decided to taught her how to play!
No she was not a piano teacher !
I miss her every day, even if I do know it is better that way, as she needed to reach the other side!
I guess, love and loss have no age, no reason! It is just how it is!
Deep inside I don’t want to speak about her at past tense ! I want to include her in my everyday !
I realize I am very lucky to have had her by my side until my 36th birthday !
She had a true and beautiful smile and sparkling eyes!

Let’s all celebrate life and gift it brings along!

I still want to share atmosphere, glimpses of life through my eyes, from me to you! From you to me!

In draft :
Among others
addresses and “rencontre” ( meetings) in Woodstock !
Tips and addresses in New York and Miami!

In the meantime let me share with you some sneak pick on the coming post… Pictures…glimpses, and I send you all lots of kisses!
