French Friday: 50 ans (bis)

February 23, 2018 (054/365)

Last year, I celebrated my 50th birthday with a cocktail at the Bar Hemingway in the Paris Ritz. This year, I'm once again celebrating a milestone anniversary -- 50 years ago, my parents adopted me. This is my first "Gotcha Day" missing both Mom and Dad, but, as Ernest Hemingway once said, “No one you love is ever truly lost.”

"Paris is a world meant for the walker alone, for only the pace of strolling can take in all the rich (if muted) detail." ~ Edmund White
[...and after 25,323 steps, 10 miles, and 13 flights of stairs, these walkers earned a lovely glass of rosé and a macaron or two in this charming café.

"It is late at night, and someone across the way is playing La Vie En Rose
It is the French way of saying, 'I am looking at the world through rose-coloured glasses,' 
and it says everything I feel. " ~ Audrey Hepburn, Sabrina
