French Friday – Paris in the Beginning

Paris in the Beginning

Last week I [begrudgingly] returned from Paris after spending five wonderful days in my favorite city in the world.  It was a really great trip.  The perfect blend of seeing friends, participating in planned activities and spontaneous wandering around.
