Blessings to you and many more Happy Years of Blogging!!





THANK YOU for the beautiful, poetic and inspiring posts. Every day I read your posts allowing myself a bit of sunshine in a stressful day. I was even thinking as I drove last night that I need to be more like Corey and "see the details" and not let life rush by in a blur.

Congratulations on 2 years of beauty and insight. Thanks again.


Happy Anniversary Corey!!
Keep up the great work!!!

Oh yay!!!! Happy Birthday!!!
So glad to 'know you' and have enjoyed myself here many, many times and learned so much! Did I hear you say all readers will be getting a boite de Laduree macarons in the mail??? I didn't even know what one was actually...until a year or so ago :)

Tamara Giselle

Happy Day! Anniversary or Birthday I am not sure. But what I am sure about is the joy that you have brought to many. Thanks for sharing a bit of heaven that is France and the life of Corey!


Hi Corey!
We e-mailed a couple of months ago
when I shared my story of my Cancer Survival
and Dream come true trip to Paris. (The subject was looking at the city from the
point of view of a cafe table.)ANYWAY...
you generously acknowledged my comment via personal note.

I just wanted to tell you that I decided that day that I will return to France with my handsome American Husband and
the four of us will share a bottle of wine.

WELL...making the story more interesting,
Today, Tongue In Cheek's second birthday is the anniversary of my diagnosis and what I celebrate as my three years of being cancer free, since this is the date that the tumor was removed, pre-treatment.

So on this date, my belief in the cosmic connection between humans is reaffirmed by
logging in to my favorite blog!
Happy Birthday&Thank you.
Your friend,


Somehow, I think your twos will not be terrible. Looking forward to another year of beautiful blog posts!

Happy Birthday!


Oh Joyeux Anniversaire then , and many more to come ! Have a brilliant celebration for a brilliant blog . Champagne , tchin tchin and big hugs from Brazil !

Bravo Corey!
We just turned in our 100% plans for our new house yesterday. Frank is interested in starting a blog to give updates on the house construction so he asked me to ask you about starting up a blog. I know that is a big question. Maybe you could just point him to a few web sites. Thanks, sweetie.
