Turning 30 in Paris: Part I

As most of you lovely readers know, I turned 30 one week ago.  I was quite bummed about not being with friends and family back home (a common feeling amongst us expats).  However, despite the ache in my heart to be with some special people in my life, David and I flew to France and celebrated the beginning of my 30s in La Ville-Lumière (The City of Light).  It also helped that I received a dozen clever video messages from my sisters throughout the day.

There are no words to describe my love affair with Paris.  My relationship with this city is much like my marriage with David.  It's not that I love them.  It's a matter of how much I love them.  The connection is soulful and real.  I'm a lucky lady.

David + Paris = My Paradise

I have chills. They seem like they could be permanent. You bring a piece of the city to life for someone who's never been to that quadrant of paradise. It's so beautiful. Throughout the day on the 30th I thought of you, strolling through quaint sidwalks and parks, eating delicious food, drinking divine drinks, and enjoying company with David. It's really special to see that reflected in these pictures. Know we can see what awesomeness you were engrossed in as you celebrated the big 3-0.
