This is where I get to say anything I feel like saying and you get to agree with me.
We will also share stories and chocolate if you have any.
Naps are also encouraged, if shopping is out of the question.


How to Cope .. When there is no Chocolate

French Dreams

A sweet friend sent this photo to me today.
Which set off all kinds of longing to be in Paris.
I want to have coffee in a cafe along the Boulevard St Germain, around the corner from our hotel on rue Jacob. 
I want to shop in the little boutiques in the Marais and look at antiques and go to Deyrolle and see the stuffed things. My husband isn't so excited about that.
I want to shop and eat and only hear French ...

In the evening, we will walk along the Quai and cross one of the bridges and go to a concert.
Then we will have a wonderful dinner of mussels and all sorts of French food,  followed by wonderful French chocolate.
Then we will  walk home, saying goodnight to the Eiffel Tower as we pass.

Confession: Even though I am in France, I still dream of Paris :)
