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

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.

I bet it is hard for you to believe that it is already a year ago?! The world holds such beauty, no matter where one roams.

There is something about Paris in the springtime. I think we should all go. Now.

Hi Penny, I remember when you went to Paris. I love your photos so much. Especially of the Eiffel Tower. Lucky you to have been to this romantic place. One of my bucket list dreams.

Honestly. That is WAY better than celebrating St. Patty's Day and I'm Irish so I'm allowed to say it. Gorgeous pictures Penny!
