Thoughts of Paris still swirl around my head though it’s been almost three weeks since I’ve returned and launched myself full force into the chaotic rhythm of life back home. It was hard to say goodbye so soon to such a magical city but I feel so blessed to have been given the opportunity to see it all again.
I was able to reconnect with old friends while there one evening and enjoyed a delicious dinner my former foreign exchange student prepared with her husband. Despite the fact that it had been 12 years since we had all last seen each other, we picked up right where we had left off… and aren’t those just the best kinds of friendships in life? We listened to French music, smoked cigarettes out of her balcony window, and laughed at old memories and pictures of life back when. Another friend introduced me to her boyfriend who said that if I were to move there, he would set me up with his friend and then proceeded to pull up his Facebook profile so I could see pics (ADORABLE!). So Paris comes complete with a built-in boyfriend. I can live with that.
It was delicious. Everything. I’m already contemplating my next trip.
But for now, I leave you with some of my favorite memories of a trip that left quite an impression. No matter how brief my time there, Paris dazzled and impressed and moved me.
