The Paris I'd Like to Share. . .


It seems like only yesterday I was sitting on a 12 hour KLM plane ride to Charles De Gaulle, having my seat kicked in by a 3 year old on a rampage, drifting in and out of consciousness with Black Swan on in the background and thinking to myself "is this really my life?"

Seven days, a Japanese Tsunami, a Parisian adventure and an engagement later, I boarded the Air France jet still feeling strangely detached from the craziest week I have ever experienced. Ever. I thought back over the first sleepless night, waking up to watch the BBC coverage of the Japan disaster and eating pan au chocolate and some random (and not very delicious) hot milk that the bf had managed to conjure up from the only place open at 3:30 am in our part of Paris that also sold milk--Le McDonalds. I pondered the metro, with its surprisingly talented array of performers and constant bustle. Of course I went back and re-enjoyed all the delicious food I ate (except pate, sorry I tried but I don' t love you!) and I thought about how much my life had changed in one week.

When I came back I was immediately thrown into the whirlwind of  "being engaged". Seeing the families, re-telling of stories, being asked the date (um, we've been engaged 3 days people lol) holding my hand out and gazing dreamily at the sparkly new adornment on my normally naked finger.

You would think someone who loves to share so much (the proof of which lies in this blog) would love to go over every detail of the trip and the proposal endlessly. At first its what I thought too, but then not so much. It was kind of like this secret that I wanted to tuck into my back pocket and relish all on my own.

The result was that I have been horrendously slow at posting pictures. Which I figure is ok, because plenty of you have been there, or live there, or blog there! But if not, above is the Paris I'd like to share. The good parts, the ones worth capturing.
