Paris Winding Down




It's been a whirlwind and as usual I've packed in far more than a day's hours allow....but with so much treasure hunting to be done....well, leaves little time for sleeping! Besides, that's what the plane ride is for!

Headed back to the States soon....the bounty of treasures are plentiful and I can't wait to start sharing them with you. Well, some for me and some for you! The Euro exchange has vastly improved since my last trip in October so that's been a plus.

After 15+ trips, I am still learning so much with each adventure.
This trip? It's been jaw dropping over the countless and unending celebrations here over newly-inducted President Obama. People are literally turning to us in restaurants when they hear our American accents merely to say "Bravo on your new President!" Even the cab drivers are taking to sharing their elation over this new President.... As Americans I think we often forget the impact our decisions have on the world as a whole....

Whenever I wind down any business trip here, I always feel a bit melancholy to say Au Revoir to the beauty of this magical City, but what I know to really miss are the boulangeries, bistros, and brasseries!

Wow that's amazing....I guess we do forget the impact America has on others. That is good to know that they are elated as our daughter will be going to Paris Fashion Institute in September......I think we told you that when we were visiting your store. We will be back to visit her in LA in March so will drop by to see your new finds - it there are any left!!!!! Safe trip returning home.

Kathy,

I am waiting with baited breath for your return!! Can't wait to hear all about your trip and to see all of the goodies you have picked up.
It's just not the same when we don't hear from you.
