Paris Review

My husband surprised me with a trip to Paris for my 40th birthday.  It was a heady experience to say the least and I had more than one moment of utter joy and thanksgiving. The fact that I was with my sweetheart made it all so much better...made it complete. I have several ideas for how I plan to document this trip...but for now, I will begin here with a few of my favorite photos:

 The Seine


 Arc de Triomphe


 The House of Givenchy



 Autumn in Paris


 Notre-Dame Cathedral


 The Louvre


 Jardins du château de Versailles


 Nutella and Banana Crêpe


The Eiffel Tower

when you find yourself in a moment of happiness...allow yourself to get swallowed up by it. do not question how long it will last or whether you deserve it, rather endeavor to deserve it and offer up a tiny prayer of thanksgiving to the generous universe.
