PARIS is not a city, it is a World!!!

After arriving in the South of France.....I immediately notice the the doors, windows and the colors!!! I also spot the French flag......also Red, White and blue!!!!
The City of Lights is like a beacon calling to me, seeing the Eiffel Tower at night, there is no way words can describe the emotions of that first sighting, when those Sparkling lights come on....
It brings out the inner child, squeals of delight coming from my mouth!!

The view in the daylight is stunning, kind of like a sterling silver bracelet, sparkling in the sunlight...
I had to pinch myself to make me realize this is true, you are HERE at the foot of the Eiffel Tower, a Dream come true!!!
It is surreal to say the least........amazing more like it!!  Paris is indeed more of a World of it's own kind of much to be just a CITY!!

More like a world sounds just about the best description I've heard so far. I've never been, but am sure dreaming about it along with Anita's traveling companions.
Thank you for sharing.
Much love,

Bonjour Mimi!
So nice to meet another Francophile!! Yes, like you, I love Paris, and try to go there at least twice a year. Your pictures capture all the flavor of why we all love it!
So glad you could join in Anita's paris Party!

Hi Mimi, Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit! We have several things in common ~ This year we too are celebrating 36 years of marriage, so you were a 'bicentennial' wedding couple too?!?

Violet was also MY grandmothers name! She died when my father was young, so I never knew her. When our 2nd grandchild was born, a girl, my daughter surprised me as I was holding that precious one for the first time and told me Violet was her middle name. I cried! {of course the only time she hears her middle name is when she is in trouble!!! When I am with them, my daughter turns to me and says, "Sorry Mom" ~ since I pointed this out to her one time!
LOL!!!} "First Name, Middle Name, Last Name" Stop that right now!!!"

She has 3 young children and another due in September, and that will make 2 boys and 2 girls, and those kids are the sunshine of my life! You know how before you have grandkids you hear others talk about theirs all the time and you feel like rolling your eyes?
Well, I've become one of 'them' now too! Te-heeeeeee!!!!

Okay, I am going to go peruse more of your blog now, I rushed the first time with so many Paris posts to visit! I am still not done, hasn't this been quite delightful?!?

Oh Mimi,
I also wanted to thank you for telling Nel about the Art des...Bridge. That sounds like something she would love to do, especially for a honeymoon. I appreciate your suggestion.
