Paris Passionnément...

.

.° paris is, and always has been, so breathtakingly beautiful,

° parisians are just so fabulously chic,

° paris was unbelievably cold for this time of year

° parisians were, as i've always found, amazingly friendly,

° paris is full of surprises, each and every time i visit
i discover something new and different
(and i've visiting regularly for decades...)

° parisian taxi drivers were noticeable by their
absence outside our hotel,

° paris is the first European capital i ever visited,
decades ago, and i fell instantly, wildly, head over heels,
in love with the place..!

° parisian bistros (checkout my latest find)
are quite simply the best

° paris is where i met the most delightful,
whose hilarious blog is quite simply unique...

18 years ago today,
I became a mother, for the very first time,
and, what I want to know is, where
did all that time go..?

It only feels like yesterday that I was strutting
around with my huge belly..!
.
Bizarrely, after all this time,
I still don't feel like a 'mum', more like a lady
who is taking care of the
most amazing and precious person on earth...
I love this quote by
Harry S Truman:

"I have found the best way
to give advice to your children
is to find out what they want
and then advise them to do it"

HAPPY BIRTHDAY J..!

I love Paris and hold a special place in my heart... This weekend I went to see "Breakfast at Tiffany's" on the big screen at the American Cinematheque and even though it doesn't take place in Paris- Audrey Hepburn always reminds me of it... xo
