Paris or Disney, They Both Make Me Smile

Okay...I’ve awakened from my Parisian dreamworld, and I thought I’d tell you a little bit about myself.

Here’s a pic of the whole family.  We obviously have a good time together.  We live about an hour from the Happiest Place on Earth, which we visit often.  That's me, bottom left, wearing a Paris t-shirt, of course!

Life was good, but got better a few years ago, when my husband Scott and I traveled to Paris for our 25th wedding anniversary.  It was our first trip overseas, and at the time, we had no idea how much it would change us.  Our outlook changed, our marriage changed, everything changed! 

Oh...did I mention it all changed for the better?  

We’ve returned once a year since, and I drive friends and family crazy talking about Paris, so this blog will be an outlet for me.  So far we’ve been three times, and each and every trip had it’s own feel, adventures, discoveries, and moments that took my breath away.  I will take you ALL over Paris, and on an unexpected train trip to the south of France (oh, the faux pas were numerous).  I will also write of other things, but hopefully, always with a certain amount of “je ne sais quois.”  

We are not wealthy people, I do not want to leave that impression...but for some reason we feel compelled to return again and again to the city we love.  Can’t explain it...don’t even want to try.  It’s just a curve ball that life threw at us and we’re going with it!  We’ve also learned you can do Paris much cheaper than imagined...but more on that later.

By the way...we leave again for France in 52 days, 6 hours, and 30 minutes, but who’s counting? ;)

You have a very good looking family. Paris and France have really changed my life too, I feel like I belong there. I am looking forward to reading more of your posts.

BTW: I leave for Paris in 2 months, 2 weeks and 5 days.

Funny how everyone knows exactly how long it will be before they are in Paris again. :)

I can't wait to hear about your adventures. I love seeing Paris through other people's eyes. I always see something else I want to explore.
