One of my happiest memories of Paris one year ago was
what happened exactly a year ago today. Today is a big day --
our daughter-in law's birthday, our monthaversary, and a 
day filled with memories of one year ago. 

Here's what I wrote then:

"After breakfast Steven and I took a taxi to the Gem Gallery for
the International Prize Paris awards ceremony. I was awarded 
the prize by EA Editore for contributing work to the 
development of contemporary art in the world.  So many great artists
from all over the world were there to pick up their prizes.

Then this evening EA Editore -- Salvatore Russo and Francesco --
organized a boat trip down the Seine for all the artists, and it was so 
much fun. Paris is so beautiful, and at night spectacular. I am so
grateful to the Russo brothers for organizing the show in the
Louvre, the awards ceremony, and that beautiful trip.
I will never forget all of the artists and guests on the boat
yelling together every time we went under one of the many bridges
over the Seine.  So fun.  Everybody laughing. The best!

Have a loving your life day."
