I spent two weeks in the States, traveling from Washington DC to Houston to Memphis to Houston, and I loved every minute of it. The best part was finally gathering all my babies back together again, which hadn’t happened since before Claire left on her gap year last August. Ok, ok- one picture, if you insist.
I was sad to leave Texas but happy to see Paris, which makes me think I am in a pretty good place no matter where I am.
My husband’s brother, sister-in-law, and nephew arrived here the day after Claire and I did, so needless to say, things have been buzzing.
You might have heard that France swore in a new president while I was away. The Champs Elysees was still dressed up for the occasion I returned.
Of course we walked to the river and admired the Pont Alexander, perhaps my favorite bridge in Paris.
We walked all over Montmartre and even bought a little Paris art at the Place du Tertre.
And yes, a few crazy people were there, too.
