May 17, 2012


The Louvre is out of control! You see that little painting that everyone's crowded around? That's the Mona Lisa! There's lots of warnings too that when you're looking at key pieces like this, watch for pickpockets! Sometimes it's just such an event that you almost forget to actually look at the piece and see what you see. Like everyone else I've seen a million reproductions of the Mona Lisa. What surprised me coming face-to-face with her is that she looked so young.


I was so super happy about this salad, I usually eat tons and tons of vegetables but had inadvertently had less as of late, but I'm happy to be back on the veg-train!


I had no idea how I was going to share my top secret news so this is the best I can do. I can say however that I finally did successfully fax the special "agreement" yesterday so the deed is done. Now I have to get my editor's cap on and get to work. Man, I love intrigue...

Wow, world-famous paintings and top secret news! It's all very exciting around the willow tree today!

Amazing to see the crowd around the Mona Lisa and the Louvre in general Jamie. Did you know Reg says there is a theory that it is DaVinci in drag? Hence the secretive smile. Did you manage to take a picture of it? Were you allowed?

Shannon, that salad is making me hungry! After talking about it with you yesterday I am going to boil some eggs together and make a spinach salad. Yum! Thanks for the inspiration.

Well you two kind of know what the secret is but be careful to keep it! :) See, I would have made a terrible spy but I love pretending to be one.

I'm loving salads these days too. One thing we really missed on our travels was vegetables!

Yes, Suzie, we were allowed to take a picture of the Mona Lisa and were able to do it.

And you're secret is safe with me!
