I'm in a Paris state of mind!!

I have been thinking about Paris alot lately, and thought I'd put up a few of my fav photos from my trip that I took a few years ago.

My hubby and I spent 2 weeks in France for our 25th wedding anniversary and it was the trip of a lifetime! I had never flown before either so it was definetely memorable! One of the things I love about Paris is that you can walk everywhere, which really was great because it helped reduce my calories from all the chocolate croissants I ate!
And of course the other great thing is the art!!! I couldn't believe that I really got to stand in front of orginal art work that I had only seen in books before. It was so emotional for me to actually be standing in front of the canvas in the same way Renior had stood, or Van gogh, or Degas. Total inspiration, that's for sure.
Hope you enjoyed some of my Paris memories. And never forget, that dreams really do come true!
