Reflections on Paris......

To be honest, given the reviews from friends and family, I had pretty low expectations, but I was pleasantly surprised!  People were very nice, and friendly and helpful.  In fact, people went out of there way to be kind.  There were a couple of instances where people were rude, but that can be found everywhere right?  I loved the Eiffel Tower.

 I didn't really 'get it' until I saw it.  I also loved the Metro, all of the interesting people.  I am embarrassed to say whenever I heard live music, I would burst into tears.  It was all so beautiful, and surreal.

Sadly, fabric shopping is never going to be the same again.  Paris, has amazing fabric stores.  We stayed in a nice area of Paris, with a definite Italian flair.  The kids loved the market, the metro and the parks.   And our date?  Well, it was kind of awesome.  We went out for drinks and then to the opera.  Very grown up of us:

So yes, Paris, I loved you, and it was fun, but it's over now.  I am just a simple country girl, not meant for the big city.    


  1. You're so sweet Jennifer. I'm glad Paris was everything that you had hoped for, and that you and Peter were able to experience the romanticism of it. You look super hot too, by the way! Peter is one lucky man.
