Our rooftop hideaway with a view. 
The days began with breakfast 
over a steamy pot of coffee pour moi
& pot of thick, creamy hot chocolate pour elle,
always served up with a beaming smile. 
A pleasure to share 
this time with my girl,
who seems to share my love 
for the city of light. 

À bientôt, Paris.

"And every day,

the world will drag you by the hand, 
"This is important!
And this is important!
And this is important!
You need to worry about this!
And this! 
And this!"

And each day,
it's up to you to yank your hand back,
put it on your heart and say

"No. This is what's important."

~ Iain Thomas

(A reminder to myself
anyone else who may need it
that sometimes a firm but polite
"no, thank you very much"
can result in a huge yessss to what matters.)


(p.s.  there seems to be an issue 

with the fonts on here at the mo...)

a few cherished days with my girl
in Par(ad)is...

oohing & aahing on our little balcony
overlooking the Tuileries gardens
with its showers of magnolia petals
& scent of cherry blossoms
filling the morning air.

Other glimpses here ~  

Pont des Arts may be
weighing heavy with love locks,
but Parisians are inventive. 

Street art & writings under bridges 
 put a smile on the face
and serve as heartfelt reminders 
of the joy & beauty of life,
even in the face of sadness 
that has struck both there & close by
so recently.
