I spent 10 days in Paris with 2 great friends. I had no guidebook and no map. (Alright, I had no map for the first 5 days and then I couldn’t stand it anymore.)
This stop wasn’t about Paris, so much, as it was about taking a break from traveling. I let my guard down. I trusted my friends. And I wasn’t disappointed: It was like coming home.


a typical scene in a Parisian apartment 🙂

I would describe the trip as domestic. And wonderful.

who ıs thıs kıd?

who is this kid?

I wasn’t homeless!! The first hours after I arrived Anne gave me the keys (and code) to her apartment saying “my home is your home the entire time that you’re in Paris, Sweety!” 🙂

And she is gettıng marrıed!

And she is getting married

I met her fiance and had the pleasure of working on their wedding invitations. Can you believe she put me in charge of cutting, ‘ol?! I took it very seriously.

Anyway, the rest of her family lives in Normandy so we took a train trip up there. I met them all and we dropped off the envelopes. Eek! It was incredible seeing her brother (the best man) hold and receive his invitation for the first time.

I mean, ıt was all ın French... ı'm faırly certaın ıt went well.

I mean, it was all in French so I’m fairly certain it was incredible.

Paris was perfect. Just like its reputation.
I Skyped wıth my family and my spirits are rejuvnated!! I am a very happy gırl.

Plus I got to eat crepes.

I bet you'll never guess

I bet you’ll never guess

I bet you'll never guess which one ıs mine.

which ones are mine.
