coming up the stairs from the metro to see sunshine, the seine & notre dame. breathtaking!
the sheer holiness of notre dame. i carried a lump in my throat and tears in my eyes as i wandered slowly, listened to the haunting music and offered up prayers for friends and family.
ile st. louis...all of it! the scarf shop. the sandwich. lunch by the seine.
watching the eiffel tower "dance" in the clear night sky. (once it is fully lit, there is a light show every few moments. spectacular! i had to pinch myself to know i was really there. (actually i have been doing that ever since i got here. i will be black & blue for sure!)
the magical spinning of the carousels. i know there is a horse with my name on it waiting to meet me ☺.
being mistake twice in one evening as a French person ☺.
English conversation on the train with the two college girls from america.
sweet white wine and fromage quiche in the afternoon.
listening to the soundtrack of 'once' while viewing pictures of the day.
my cozy little apartment and the wonderful comfy bed next to the red cyclamen i purchased at my neighborhood flower market!
