If You Can't Go To Paris...
...Bring Paris To You!
This last Monday night (a little over a week ago), I dragged my daughter to the movies to see Paris, Je T'aime. I loved it! At one point, I leaned over and whispered in her ear, "I am going to Paris, shhhhh." She whipped her head back at me and said, "Yeah, uhhuh right!" I looked at her back with a matter of fact expression on my face and said, "Watch me!"
When I was little, I had big dreams of seeing the world... then I had a baby, got married and had more children. Money had a new meaning to me. You had to have it to do anything. Going, and seeing the world got swept under the rug, I rarely ever thought about it. Until I started blogging. When you blog, you have the opportunity to see the world. The dream that I dreamt so many years ago is alive and well. Sigh... it will happen.
Back to the movie...
It is a movie with a lot of vignettes... each one having a different director, filmed in a different part of Paris. The next morning, I went to Starbucks with a friend, I noticed the CD "Rendezvous a' Paris." I have been enjoying it ever since that morning.
This summer Paris came home to me!
