Shall We?

I have not abandoned the blog entirely because I'm not ready. I've changed the title to One Plus One because I'm going to put one foot in front of the other, and take one day at a time.
My life is standing on its head. My Older Daughter is in Paris, having a wonderful time, but so far away. Gigi is getting ready to finish up at her 2-year school and is applying to other schools to finish out her Bachelor's. My Younger Daughter has chosen her own path which, for the most part, does not include us. And there are other issues. But that's another topic, for a later discussion.

That said, here comes the blog. It will be mostly photos. I'm optimistic, hopeful, and determined. Determined to do what, I'm not really sure.

If you choose to follow on my journey, welcome aboard!
I hope not to disappoint.

Yes, you wouldn't want your daughter to get ahead of you on the blog thing! Sounds like she's having a great time, and learning a lot too.

One. Foot. At. A. Time.

Works for me.

And taking one day at a time sounds like a good strategy to me.

Thank goodness you're back! I've been checking in every day - I know that chicago flower shop photo like the back of my hand now. I hope everyone is ok and one foot in front of the other is sensible. Take care and don't go away for so long next time. I missed you.

Well, I don't know where to start. I guess I'll just wish you the best and wait for updates. Hang in there, dearie.

Welcome home. Lovely to have you back. One foot in front of the other will definitely work. How else could you do it? But if you should stumble, it looks like a whole lot of us are ready and waiting to catch you.
