The views of the city were just what you see in these pictures, amazing. There was a glow that surrounded everything. The experiences of that one week have stayed with me. I can still smell the fresh bread baking at the boulangerie down the street. The thought of croissants and piping hot cafe au lait are making my mouth water.
I remember walking through the city and breathing in pure inspiration. Yes, the grand sites, such as the Lourve, Notre Dame, and the Musee de l'Orangerie, were all jaw dropping. But, even now, I think I took as much pleasure just observing Parisians going about their daily lives. Well, maybe tasting all the fantastic confections was what sent my love for Paris over the top. I'll share some of the pastry pictures another time. For now, I think I have enough motivation to get up and start enjoying this beautiful day.
