Paris, Paris, Paris

We left our little Parisian apartment at about 7:30 Monday morning. I was sad, yet so grateful to my beloved for our time there.

Paris (in my humble opinion) is one of those places that you either love or you hate.

It is a city and has everything that a city has to offer.

Yes, it smells like piss.

Yes, there are people begging all around you.

Yes, the traffic is awful.

Yes, sidewalk sharing is not popular here.


It has some of the most beautiful buildings in the world. I could and have spent days just wandering looking at them. I am constantly finding something new. Always remember to look up.

It has works of art that you can see no place else in the world.

It has a river that is crossed by bridges and bridges and bridges.

It has more churches than you can shake a stick at.

It has cute little children that speak French.

I mean what more could a girl want?

I dream about living in Paris, maybe not forever but maybe for a little while. Beloved, could you hang for longer than two weeks?

We've only been there once, but we stayed for 15 days. We loved it and we still talk about it. It's hard to believe that it was almost 15 years ago now. We took 2 day trips while we were there, so we want to see more of France. We could see staying in Paris for an extended time..months instead of weeks, that's for sure. I guess I should start buying Lottery tickets! Or maybe GET A JOB! ;o)
