Keep thinking about Paris and what images I see

Paris is always on my mind- image from Tumblr
My snack at Angelina
View from our hotel room

In my mind's eye I see so many images of Paris. It is so fun to sit on a terrace or balcony with an iron railing/grill work and eat breakfast. I see the croissants and tiny jars of jam.

I keep seeing the view from our last hotel room into the garden. It will be a year this month since my last visit. I am craving the pastry and the walking around the parks and neighborhoods.

I hear Paris calling my name again. Is she calling you too?

Have a Pink day!


  1. Morning Marie,
    You are very right Paris is a hard place to forget, there are so many lovely things about it.
    The whole way of life their is so different, and so relaxed and enjoyable. Course, it has been almost 40 yrs. since I was there, but I do remember so much about it, although it was a whirl wind trip of just 3 days over the Memorial Day holiday I believe it was, and I was only 20 yrs. old at the time.

    Isn't it just so astounding to see landmarks like the Eifel tower and the Arc de Triumph that you have seen in your history books as a child growing up, and
    then to actually see it in person,.... just sort of takes your breathe away! and that traffic circle around the Arc......Oh My, we found it to be rather frightening!! lol
    So we parked our car and walked everywhere we
    went until we left. Much safer!! lol

    Enjoy those Parisian thoughts!!
    Blessings, Nellie

  2. About now just having a week at home would be fun but PARIS...that would be heaven! Thank goodness for blogs! This morning I'm having my coffee and I've visited Italy, Malta, Normandy, Cyprus and now Paris!

  3. I think that liking Paris as you do you must understand how hard it is for me who was brought up in Paris. I was there a couple of weeks ago, and have to say that I did visit my mother, twice a year, for decades (may be close to 52 trips) but I still miss it a lot. The culture is the one I know and the language too. No one around me speaks French. It’s not so much that I miss it, is that it is home and it’s hard to live in the Deep South so far away.

  4. I just read on your profile that you live in Marietta – that is where I also live. So now you can appreciate that this is not a liberal, intellectual and diverse place like Paris.

  5. She is calling me! I hope to meet up with my husband (he's in Iraq right now) there in 2 or 3 months.
