Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Last year on this date, I wasn't thinking about wearing of the green and corned beef.  I was flying over the ocean on my way to Paris....

I was dreaming of the Eiffel Tower.

Dreaming of the Louvre...

Dreaming of the Paris Flea Markets...


and dreaming of spending days, wandering around the streets of Paris...

(all pictures in this post taken by me last year in Paris)

What wonderful memories.
Welcome Home,
Penny

  1. We went in the spring too... But quite a few years ago.

    While there, we met up with a couple of people I Net-knew. Were shown around "the real Paris." :-) The Paris of those who live there... Which my young friend David [Dahhhh-veeeed], knew I wanted to experience.

    "May you have warm words on a cold evening,
    a full moon on a dark night,
    and the road downhill all the way to your door."

    Happy St. Patrick's Day.
