Merci beaucoup!

Merci beaucoup Anita, for hosting the fabulous Simply Irresistible Party in Paris.
It was so much fun going to visit all that were on the guest list and to see what everyone had to share.
A lovely way to visit old friends and to meet some new ones too.

Also many thanks for the birthday wishes you sent for my daughter, that was very kind of you and appreciate your friendship.

I have been having trouble with blogger, so I am still trying to get around to visit you all.
Wishing you a happy week
