Back to Reality

We’re back, and holycrapParisisbeautifulIwanttomovetheretomorrow. We had a lovely time in France, both in Paris



Excuse the hair, I'm soaking wet. Look at the tower!

And in the Dordogne valley



The trip was perfect – we kept busy, we relaxed, and most of all we walked. We walked all over Paris






And every part was as beautiful as the one before. Really, 90% of the city was startlingly lovely. I don't know what they do with their bad architects, export them to us perhaps?

Then we took the train to Bordeaux and drove east to the Dordogne Valley to see some pretty old and pretty amazing chateaux.



We ate ourselves silly.

I didn’t really knit at all.

The other big news around here is that I start back to work tomorrow at the restaurant and I’ll be starting a new position on the hot line. Pasta! I’m excited but also pretty nervous – in this restaurant, pasta is the toughest spot on the line and really physical work. I hope I don’t make a fool of myself!

Looks like a great trip. I hear you on the Paris love. My oldest sister lived there for 9 years. The rest of the family was very happy when she moved back; I was selfishly upset that I no longer had a free place to stay in Paris.

Oh, I could've told you where the ugly neighborhoods in Paris are! Next time?
Hmm, pasta...
