Floating up and away!

Bonjour mes amis,
Loving this new  advertisment for Louis Vuitton, of the hot air balloon soaring over Le Louvre.

Floating up and away into the horizon in a red and white striped hot air balloon, what fun it would be looking down over the fabulous City of Paris, tres magnifique.

My daughter has a blog and has written a new post after a long time away.   If you have the time,  please go over and say hello.

A day at a time
Everyday is an opportunity to make a new happy ending

I want to thank everyone for visiting and the lovely comments you leave, it makes me happy that there are such kind people out there.
Hope that you are having a lovely week


  1. Awwwwww. wouldn't that be good, Over Paris and all.

  2. This red and white striped hot air balloon is fabulous, Carolyn. Do you know I've always wanted to go up in one of those? I better do it soon before I get too scared. I wanted to come over and wish you a Happy Thanksgiving. You are a dear one, and your friendship is a blessing to me.

  3. Dear Carolyn,
    What a breathtaking sight that is. Love your photos.. I will pop over and say hello to your daughter.

  4. Hi Carolyn, What a wonderful ad for LV. Love the red and white against the neutral atmosphere.
    Thank you for letting us know your daughter posted on her blog. I will go over for a visit.
    Thank you for stopping by and your kind comment. Hope you are having a great week. We are preparing for Thanksgiving Thursday and it is a busy time, but so much fun.

    Sending hugs, CM

  5. Carolyn, I think I would love to wake up and be floating down on the fabulous city of Paris. I've been to quite a few European cities and I do believe if I had one choice, it would be Paris. I think I could live anywhere in Europe, but Paris is the one. :)

    I will check out your daughter blog and leave her a hello.

    Hope you're having a great week!

    Blessing to you and yours!


  6. Oh me oh my this is amazing...and all over Paris..pure joy. Hugs to you dear one.

  14. Seeing the hot air balloon reminded me of the movie Arounf the World in 80 Days.

    Have a wonderful day!


  15. Dear Carolyn, I like the picture with the hot air balloon over the buildings.

    There a place outside of town where I live that offer balloon rides where people jump out and bungie down. I don't have the nerve.

    I wouldn't mind taking a ride in the sky, but not jumping!!!

    May you have a wonderful day and I always enjoy reading your blog. I will hop over to your daughter's and say hello.

    God bless,

  16. Beautiful picture's. I like to fly over the louvre. Sorry for not translating my blog anymore. I'll take action on that. The post was about the winner of the give away.

  17. I've seen this commercial, and it's visually stunning. I wholeheartedly agree! I've always wanted to go up in a balloon.


  18. Dearest Carolyn, thank you for your warm welcome!
    Oh, this advertisment with the hot air balloon soaring over Le Louvre raises wonderful memories in me! In Page / Arizona was held the Balloon-day on our arrival-day (once-yearly event with Balloon Regatta and in the evening a main street full of enlightened hot air balloons! What a sight!
    Sending hugs, Traude

  19. Amazing pics! It would be such fun to take a balloon ride over Paris!
    Wish you have a happy day Carolyn :)

  20. Good evening my dear Carolyn! I have not bee around for two days and have missed you all so much! This hot air balloon image is my style... I love the idea of flying away.
