I Love Paris

Paris’ reputation as one of the best cities in the world is absolutely well-deserved. I mentioned at the start of the trip that I have not spent a lot of time here over the last few years, mostly using Paris as my flight base and as a hub to get elsewhere in France.  But as I think back over the last nine days, there are a thousand beautiful images (et plus!) running through my mind like a film reel on fast forward.  Flipping through the photos on my iPad, for every image, I am also thinking of all that I saw but did not photograph. All that we ate, and the confectionary perfection that made us smile, noses pressed to the glass~


The sheer monumentality of many parts of the City, which never fails to impress~


The vistas and the layout of the City encourage relaxation and conversation.  A seat for you and a friend is always waiting in the Tuilleries~


And the museums, some of which I revisited, some which I still want to see again.  You don’t have to think about it too much, when you have an opportunity, just go to Paris~


And the Eiffel Tower….oh I think I shall miss you most of all….


If only we could all click our heels three times and be here….if only….

I’m going to be back soon, and will take a little more time to pause in Paris when I do return to France.  But for now, I’m off to the editing room and to finish writing Rêve.  After I make a quick run to the boulangerie that is….as it’s now going on 7am in Paris and the bakeries will be steamy and warm to encourage the day’s bread to proof, and we need a few snacks for the road.  A bientôt, Paris, je vous aime~


  1. Such a photogenic city.
    I know you had a glorious time.

  2. Andrea I am so happy to hear this; as much as I want to spend time with you in Beune, we must have our forever Paris Experience!

  3. I almost bought some of those chairs at The Tuilleries at The Alameda Point on Sunday!!!
    They were so comfortable!!!!

  4. At first glance, I thought the macaroons or Eiffel Tower would be my favorite... but that clock image is spectacular! I wish my husband was a traveler, sigh.


  5. Loved accompanying you on this trip! Safe travels.

  6. I have never seen such a gorgeous Eiffel Tower photo. I would go so far as saying breathe taking. Thank you.

  7. I love visiting your blog and reading about Paris and France. I want to say this but, please, don't think I'm complaining; it's more ennui. Two weeks after Dave became ill, we were supposed to fly into Paris and spend a few days. Then, we were going to "ride the rails" for a month; we had tickets to gad about Europe for a month, taking the train. Dave asked me, "Do you think we're too old to do this?" I told him, "Absolutely! And next year we'll be another year older so NOW is our time!"
    Unfortunately, we weren't able to take that trip but it's still a fond memory. Your beautiful photos and writing let me know what to expect when I do take that trip...some day. Thank you.

    1. Ma Chere, I know that Dave will be right there at your side, watching you, when you go to Paris....he will be with you. Please let me know, Sandra, when you want to go to Paris, if I can help you with your travels.

  8. clicking the heels, great and another click
    I could walk through it all again.
    They are memories we never forget.
    Oh! those little shop windows, were so pretty.

  9. I'm clicking, I"m clicking!!!!

    I'm also drooling over your photos. Paris je t'aime!

    Bon weekend,
