My sister is beautiful – especially when she’s in Paris

When my sister decided to accompany me to Paris, I was thrilled. So excited! Lynn is the thrifty one, you see. A trip across the pond is something she takes quite seriously; however, I suppose the timing was right as it only took a minute until I heard her elated response: “Yes!”

My Christmas trip to France

Since it was Christmas Eve, they were serving champagne. What an excellent idea! Two glasses of pink champagne later, my husband was beginning to feel a little warm and fuzzy.

My French Book Club – Part II

I gobbled up this book in five hours. I have never in my life read a book in five hours—for a couple of reasons. First one being, I love making a good book last, and second, I have never had a book take a hold on me so quickly. I began reading and couldn’t put it down until I was finished.

I did warn my husband before his first trip to Paris: “Parisians can be a little aloof.” Yet the taxi drivers, concierge, waiters and shop workers all seemed to take to my husband marvelously. They were proving me wrong!

My French Book Club – Part 1

Okay, so maybe it isn’t an actual ‘book club’, considering that I am the only member. And maybe it doesn’t actually take place in Paris. But these fantastic, beautiful, page-turning books are, in some way or another, related to Paris.

Gorging my way through Paris

I have to give credit to Kerrin Rousset. While reading her blog, my eyes feasted on the most heavenly piece of dessert I had ever seen! Surely, this was the crème de la crème of desserts?
