Paris, My Sweet

February 7, 2018 (038/365)

“I guess it goes to show that you just never know where life will take you. You search for answers. You wonder what it all means. You stumble, and you soar. And, if you’re lucky, you make it to Paris for a while.” - Amy Thomas, Paris, My Sweet: A Year in the City of Light

Earlier this week, I started reading Paris, My Sweet: A Year in the City of Light by Amy Thomas. I have been craving a good book and this tour of Paris' famed bakeries, pâtisseries, and chocolate shops is certainly satisfying my sweet tooth. Yet my appetite for Paris is voracious, so I'm going back -- in two weeks! What a sweet surprise!
