I am missing Paris something fierce. France in general, actually…it is calling me. I want to be lounging in those green chairs, fresh baguette in hand, people watching in the Tuileries…right now. I try to get there at least every three years, to see my brother and family, and to get my francophile fix. The good news is that a trip next spring is in the works…YES! The bad news? Well, that seems like a very long time from now at the moment (although I am so grateful for the opportunity, whenever it happens). In the meantime, I am busy planning Marie + Henry’s birthday bash, which happens to fall on…Bastille Day! Oh yes-what used to be my annual event has turned into our babies birthday-how perfect is that?! To be clear, they were born on July 13th, but after 6 PM…it was Bastille Day in France! More on that soon…but if you’re in need of a “fix” like I am, find a quiet moment and visit my archives, and link through to my favorite francophiles here.
