A big wow and thanks for sharing your travels with us.. They are amazing and make great stories.. Right now with money beign so tight I dont think I will have that kind of memories for the time being.
Thanks for taking us all on the trip; to be a part of your wonderful holiday in southern France in 1969. I have enjoyed it very much so and I know I am not the only one!
NOOOOO!!! Not the end?? Oh well,I can only be grateful for the lovely, detailed and photographed trip you gave us and the insight to such amazing, talented people. Thank you.
I join those regretting the end of this series. Surely you can come up with a few more of these.
I hope so.
I can't believe you have so many photos from your trip and what a trip it was... I can hardly get Stephen to snap ten or twenty pictures. If I were going to the fabulous places he gets to go... well, I would need several 4GB cards and many rechargeable batteries.
How I wish I'd been in the South of France in 1969! (lol) Things would be different now!!!
We're all with you when your "world goes awry", and as the sunshine replaces our "June Gloom", we hope it will likewise bring a brighter future for our very favorite Blogger.

Well, let me just say, Picasso was not the only star in the show...you and your outfits are stunning! I love your clothes, and even your everyday white purse. I have one of those NOW.
Picasso, France, your time with Daddy Joe...who wants it all to end? Luckily, you have this all posted so you can revisit any time you'd like...and so can I.
Thanks again for sharing, Naomi, and I hope you're having a better day today! :)
I have loved reading about your French trip, Naomi. And I love the bell bottomed pants! Be good to yourself, and give yourself a hug.
I really have enjoyed reading these posts...love the photos, and the glimpse of days gone by...Picasso...wow...I'm in awe. :)
Naomi, have you ever shared these photos with Picasso historians? I am sure they would LOVE to see them.
Great that you have these photos to trigger your memories and such a unique special time in your life. Thanks for sharing them here.
Do hope you're doing well as can be.
I would so love to be able to travel through time and be there on that day. I'm surprised you haven't been contacted yet for a book deal on the story of your life.
Or have you?
WOW!...WOW! Picasso! I'm just sitting here drooling at the thought!

How cool. Love the sunglasses and bell bottoms too.
I absolutely adore your blue bell-bottomed jump suit! I had one somewhat similar, in black, and I thought I looked smashing in it!
Thank you dear Naomi, for sharing your memories of your holiday in France. I think that you have had a lot of fun scanning the photos and putting the stories together. I have really enjoyed seeing your pictures, and getting to know Daddy Joe and Olga! And Picasso too. Hugs!

Incredible memories and to have all the photos as well. What a book it would make. I love the beautiful blue of your outfit and the bell bottoms. They suit you! Wonderful trip, just amazing, thanks for sharing.
This was a fab vacation and I have enjoyed your posts!! You are so organized, you have so many pictures. I also admire you remembering so many details. And I love that blue jump suit !
Naomi, I love your bell bottomed jumpsuit too!! You look great in it! I like how it is made at the top too.
I sure have enjoyed this France series and hate to see them end. What a fascinating time for you! I know sharing this has brought back so many memories for you and that special time in your life.
Take care of yourself Naomi. Big hugs to you and dear Sweetie!! :)
You have a wonderful collection and we are all grateful for the time you took to record such momentous happenings when it would have been so much easier to just enjoy the company.
You look stunning in those bell bottoms.

These France posts are so readable, interesting and historical educative Naomi. You should give lectures at univercities!
Coming from Europe and Norway, its so interesting to read about the experiences, reflections and adventures through you - thanks for sharing and for taking your time to collect all this - and well documented with great pics too!
I shall miss the France post series naomi. Love that pant suit and sunglasses, you were a looker!
How fun to have spent time with Picasso
Este Lauder I'm so jealous and I hope you still have that compact. This is so wonderful I will miss the trip as well for I have lived vicariously through you.

Great, great photos!
LOVED that blue jumpsuit you're wearing, Naomi. You certainly were quite the fashion plate!
And I DO remember your purse strap breaking on one of the first posts. Question: Do you STILL have that white French purse?
All through these final posts one song has been running through my mind, "These Were the Times of Our Life." And they certainly were YOURS!
You look SO chic! I love the pantsuit!!!!
Picasso two days in a row... amazing!
I've thought of you often lately, and I hope you've seen Kim by now. I know time with her will bring some much needed healing and comfort to your very broken heart.
