Reminiscing

January 18, 2014 Photo (018/365): "Reminiscing"

A year ago today, I was in Paris...

It was a quick weekend trip for a conference.
I had no intention of playing tourist.
My plans were to stroll and write in cafés,
to take unpredictable photos like this one:

Who loses a baguette on their way into the Metro?
Anyway, I didn't plan on running from monument to monument...

...that is, until I arrived in time for Paris' biggest snowfall in recent history (over 20 cm)!

How could I resist Paris sous la neige?

The already breathtaking French capital was transformed into a Winter Wonderland!

(Failed Selfie!  I maintain that my arms are too short ;)

How fun for this Wisconsin girl to watch 
the blissful French children and dogs play in the snow
(as well as the chic Parisians slipping & sliding in
fashionable yet completely inappropriate footwear ;)

Even though it was a quick trip to Paris,
it was also one of my most memorable, and I know I'll be back...

...the sooner the better! Paris, je t'aime et tu me manques beaucoup!

Jusqu'à la fois prochaine! Bisous!
