Remembering 30

Nine years ago today I turned thirty and took myself to Paris, the city of my heart. A dear friend of mine joined me and we arrived in Paris on a bitter cold birthday morning. We stayed in a friend’s apartment in Montmartre and made our way to a warm cozy cafe to have an early lunch. While we were eating at, “L’ ete en ponte douce,” a rare Parisian snow began to fall. As one who loves snow, this was the icing on my birthday cake. What a way to welcome in 30! I remain forever grateful.

    Oh, Bethy, those photos are beautiful. And the MIJE!! Where our friendship started! Have fun with the blog and thank you for sharing the beauty you find. It’s been good to “stop and SEE the flowers”!

      My sweet Beth! The coldest winter in Paris in recorded history, such a good excuse for stopping for chocolat chaud every block! A priceless memory, now what about next year?
      All my love, joy
