My first laundry day was last week.  It was my first HAND-WASHED laundry day actually. I may just be turning into a woman fit for pioneer life. Go ahead and load me up into your stagecoach or covered wagon with a baby in one arm and sawed-off shotgun in the other, cowb...

Tonight, at Atelier de la Rose, Sally is hosting a four course dinner party! I'M SO EXCITED!!! I'm mainly excited by the fact that everyone attending SPEAKS ENGLISH. Of the attendees, Sally has invited two journal editors from Manhattan (their summer home is in Montcab...

I've been painting like a wild woman! It's wonderful to be back to such a state of mind! Now, the greatest obstacle is actually getting all my supplies and painting necessities out on location. There's so much to carry, and the oils are all exposed. I'm already a "Mess...

 Upon my arrival in Toulouse, France yesterday I felt as if I were ten feet off the ground, in the clouds, free, excited and a badass, independent young lady.  I collected my luggage from baggage claim like a champ then confidently and powerfully strode toward the exit...

I'm half way there!

The over-night flight from the U.S. wasn't a bad one.  It was like having a massive slumber party with lots of foreign people cramped into a tiny vessel with no personal space; I can dig.  I watched two awful movies, as per my choice, slept about a...

Fare thee well, my beloved Motherland; informally,
OO-ESS-AV-EH.. ‘MURICA.. Fifty Nifty United States, Land of the Free and Home of
the Brave.  However, more importantly, I bid my dearest ‘goodbyes’ to my Homeland within the Motherland, Louisiana.   I definitely w...
