PARIS: Dinner and a Sparkly View






On our final night in the city of lights we took it easy and tried to relish our last few hours of vacation. We tried ourselves some authentic French Onion Soup (yum!), ate our last real French crepes (double yum!), and swooned over the beautiful Eiffel Tower as it sparkled one last time for us on our Parisian adventure. It was bittersweet because not only was it the end of our vacation in one of the most spectacular cities in the world, but it was also bringing our visit with my college roommate, Nancy, and her husband, Mark, to a close. We all had such a wonderful time together sightseeing and sharing in the wonder of visiting a new place for the first time. I have to say, had they not been there, I'm not sure Paris would have been quite as fun. Enjoying the blessings of life is always more fulfilling when you have special people to share it with. The next morning, we did have a few hours to stroll around the Champs de Mars and the river once more before catching our train back to Frankfurt. All in all our Parisian vacation, albeit short in length, was one for the record books. A big thank you (and MISS YOU!!) to Nancy & Mark for helping to make our time there so darn memorable! Well, folks...that concludes my recaps of Paris! Whew. Took me long enough, huh? Worth it. :)
