I never really thought I'd get to go back to Paris.
I went to Paris with my sister and her two daughters in the summer of 2010. I was always smitten with Paris, but when I left Paris that July I was in love.
Still, I never really thought I'd get to go back. My husband isn't a traveller who likes cities.
But, for just for me, he helped plan a trip to Italy this summer to celebrate our retirements and our 40th wedding anniversary. And we bookended our trip with three days in Paris.
Here's the selfie (above) we took when we got off the train from the airport. Can you see the Eiffel Tower far, far away?
And here we are (below) walking near the Seine.
I took lots of photos with my sister's big camera, but I had lots of troubles with it since I really didn't know what I was doing. Forgive me, but I had to throw a big layer of icing on most of my pictures to cover up all my newbie-camera mistakes.
The weather was amazing. Paris was just starting to put on its summer clothes, and it was showing off.
I'll be sharing my photos here all of July.
