Area 'fille' fulfills dream to travel, walks barefoot in Paris

I suppose some news about Paris is in order, especially after the long blogging hiatus. Basically Paris was wonderful; I had the most wonderful wonderful time and it was all I had dreamed it would be. Everyday was sunny which meant we walked as much as possible and saw many of my favorite parts of the city: le Marais, Monmartre, les jardins, and of course many other small surprises of farm-fresh markets, charming streets, and small parks were discovered. I was so caught up in the wonder of Paris that I didn't once think back to the snowy wonderland I had just left or worry about the mountain of work I had to return to. Paris enveloped my entire state of being. I was so caught up in the moment that I didn't recall my past or anticipate the future; Paris was my reality and my state of mind. It felt otherworldly. So what did I do? Oh a little of everything really...went to museums, read my book in the park, took photos of all my meals, walked everywhere, spoke as much French as possible, and had a really really fabulous time. I miss it already. Paris je t'aime.
