Well, it’s time to say goodbye to 2007. And what a year! Let’s review: Trips to London; Paris (twice); Port Grimaud; Vienna; Salzburg; Acqui Terme, Italy; the U.S. and Aruba. Not too shabby.
Of course, none of it would have happened without our wonderful friends and family, who made this all possible. Thanks to Leah for loaning us her lovely London flat while she was in the States. Next time, let’s plan a visit when you’ll be in town! Thanks to Yannick for totally vacating his apartment in Paris and staying with his brother so that we could stay at his place. Johann is still talking about the Bordeaux – Lyon match you saw together. Thanks to Adi and Frits for inviting us to stay with them in their gorgeous house in Port Grimaud. What luxury! You’re too good to us. We miss you.
Thanks to Air France for their miles program, which allowed us to fly to Austria for free, and without which we wouldn’t have had the pleasure of Ed, Cindy, Bunny, Ed Sr., Terri and Charlie’s company for a whole wonderful week. The hills were alive with the sound of music… And the clinking of beer steins.
Thanks to Erin and Francesco for
hosting us in their new little love nest in Italy. We’re counting the days until your wedding, our dear friends! And I’m looking forward to standing up next to the bellisima bride! Thanks to Mom and Dad for coming to visit us in Provence and taking us with them to Paris (and springing for the hotel!). We had such a blast with you guys, as we always do. You’re the best.
Thanks to Jenni and Colin for a fun-filled weekend at their place, which included gathering together a houseful of people that I hadn’t seen in ages and was really happy to catch up with. Missing you all so much. And last, but certainly not least, thanks to Ed for making us part of Cindy’s birthday present, which was a free week in a beautiful house in Aruba. What an unforgettable trip! I have new wrinkles from all the laughing we did. I can’t wait to see what you get her next year. We’ll discuss it in Spain this May.
Bring it on, 2008. We’re ready for you.
