PHOTO FETISH FRIDAY

Seeing as the flights have been booked, today’s photo seems appropriate. In 2009, we visited Paris for the first time and it was everything I had hoped it would be and more. I had been dreaming of all things Parisian ever since my high school French teacher – an actual Parisian, in Everett, WA of all places – force-fed us all things French. And, I was ravenous. Thoughts of this otherworldly, beautiful place filled with history, culture, art, statuary, croissants (!), flowers, fashion, all things Marie Antoinette, were like a life-line out of the drab, lack-lustre neighbourhood I grew up in. Many, many years passed before making it there and I have to admit that I was more than a little nervous, afraid that maybe the wizard really was only an old man behind a dingy velvet curtain. Imagine my joy (quel surprise!) at finding itย everything I had hoped for and more. If you’ve never been, you should. It’s lovely. Words cannot describe how perfect it is. There seemed no place more fitting to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary this October than the city of love (and light). So, until then, fair Paris… tu me manques.

A walk about Paris will provide lessons in history, beauty, and in the point of Life. ย -Thomas Jefferson

He who contemplates the depths of Paris is seized with vertigo. Nothing is more fantastic. Nothing is more tragic. Nothing is more sublime. -Victor Hugo

  1. Sarah,
    Have you seen Diva? I watched that movie over and over in high school and it gave me the same desire to visit France as your French teacher. I agree that Paris fulfills all expectations. Chouette! {{{Hugs}}} Kozo

    • No, I’ll look it up! Your last recommendation (It Might Get Loud) was awesome, so I’ll check it out. Are you implying I might be one? ๐Ÿ˜‰ xoxo
