The past month has been a whirlwind, including trips to sing in Dallas, New York, Birmingham, Chicago, with stops in Atlanta and St. Louis. And now I'm back in Boston for the weekend, only to head out to New York on Sunday and back to Atlanta on Tuesday.
I seriously love my life.
I must admit that I am currently in one of the most nostalgic states I've experienced in a very long time. This is handy at the moment, seeing as my current series of blogs is supposed to be focused on recording stories from trips of the past.
I just saw the new Woody Allen Movie Midnight in Paris, and I feel as though I've been swept away to a time when I, myself, lived in Paris. If you've ever been to that city, lived in that city, or even read about that city, I highly recommend this movie. It is one of the most charming, surprisingly romantic movies I have seen in a very long time, and in only an hour and a half, it made me fall in love with Paris all over again....
It's been almost 6 years now since I lived in Paris, and seeing all of the sights of that beautiful city took me back to a time that only seems like a dream of my own with every year that passes in which I don't revisit that town. And with every year that goes by, it seems harder and harder to remember that, yes, I was actually there, and, yes, I do speak French. It's sad, really, to think that my time there is becoming more and more of a fading memory...such a dream. I guess that means I should go back :)
So as a tribute to my time in Paris, I recently went back and read my journal, and I would like to include in this post an entry from 6 years ago:
OCTOBER 9, 2005
Ha, and that was just a weekend in Paris! I'm in such a Parisian mood that I decided to take my blog to the next level and add a couple of my favorite pictures:
Eiffel Tower on a sunny day :)
This one is me at Versailles...love my SMU pride
Me, the Francophile in Normandy
I could seriously add dozens more pictures, but these are just a few that caught my eye. I'll have to save a nostalgic post from my trip to Turkey for another day...pictures included, of course. Now that will be a blog you won't want to miss.
So to sum it up, I love Paris.
I miss Paris.
Go see Midnight in Paris.
And if you are interested in seeing more pictures, here is an old website that should take you away to a beautiful country I once lived in for just a little while.
Until next time!
