.° 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....
"A daughter is the happy memories of the past,
the joyful moments of the present,
and the hope and promise of the future"
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..!
