things i love lately (the French addition).

(

                                                     (the Japanese poster for the movie Paris je t’aime)

Yes, I guess it is true…I’m obsessed with everything French (I am even willing to forget about the restaurant tonight that refused to serve us because we were American). Aside from a few haughty shopkeepers and a near fatal collision whilst I was biking near the Seine River, everyone and everything has been so lovely.

me, professing my love to the Eiffel Tower. 
I shouldn’t be allowed on bikes in busy areas. 









To help me cope with the sadness of leaving Paris today, I spent a few hours finding French “things” to hang on our walls, or to wear and remind me of this trip that  i wish didn’t have to end.
