Every time I see anything that has a picture or sculpture of La Tour Eiffel it seems like a portal that takes me back to Paris in a heartbeat. My daughter actually jokes that I need an intervention. haha For some reason, since I came back from my trip, it’s like everywhere I go there’s some kind of thing that reminds me of Paris. It may have been there before but now maybe I have become more aware of these things… or maybe it’s a sign that I should go back… soon.
I don’t know what it is but I feel so drawn to it. I can’t seem to point it out… I just loooove Paris… I can’t wait to go back with my daughter summer of next year. Gosh! I’ve been planning it since I got back last summer saying in 2 years and now it’s next year already… Whoa!!!
Yesterday, my daughter went to my bedroom to surprise me with a new eye mask… it’s pink silk and black lace with “dreaming of Paris” written on it. I was excited to use it. I definitely daydream about Paris almost everyday before I go to sleep. I can’t wait… and I’ll be seeing my Frenchie and we’ll be kissing by the Tour Eiffel and taking selfies… LOL That is, of course, depending on how wishy-washy I can get about our LDR… decisions… decisions… 😉
Well, I’m quite excited to meet up with my Frenchie when he comes to visit me here this year but it won’t be the same… the allure that is Paris will definitely heighten the senses, the excitement, the “pleasure” (one of his most favorite words… haha) of the experience.
I can’t wait to actually be there and live as a local no matter how short or temporary. I want to experience it from a local’s point of view, with “pleasure”… and not as a tourist like the first time. I want to also stay in the countryside, ride a bike… go on a picnic, eat baguettes, cheese and drink wine with my Frenchie… it may sound cliche, like in the movies but I would like to say that I have lived that dream I had and crossed it out from my Bucket List.
