Paris :: Anytime

I know that the phrase is 'Paris in the Springtime'; and yes, that is truly a magical time there. But I would take Paris anytime.

Richard took me to Paris two years ago for a 'big birthday'. It was incredible, romantic and so memorable. I was flipping through the pictures today and thought it would be nice to take a journey back to France......... come along with me for a quick visit.

The architectural elements in Paris take your breath away.

The Eiffel Tower is iconic with Paris. When we traveled up to the observation deck I discovered that I had vertigo. I was surprised that I was frightened to walk out on the deck, but I did it and the view was incredible. Later in the evening Richard took me to a cafe to sit and watch the light show on the Eiffel Tower. I LOVED, loved, loved being in Paris. And I love that it was Richard who took me to Paris......because my Honey is very romantic. Sigh !

I'll never forget when Richard and I strolled along the Paris streets at night.

I took many pictures (about 100 per day) while we traveled through France; and so the  many of the images are of the beautiful churches that we visited. The church above is on Ile de la Cite. A poster size print is framed and hanging in our living room; each time I look at I recall being in this incredible room that was literally a dome of stained glass. It's a warm and wonderful memory.

Richard took me to the Louvre for my birthday. 
It was a wonderful day together that I'll never forget.

Paris ..... Anytime. Take me there.
