Thinking about Paris and Sweet & Simple Fridays #36

I was thinking about Paris today.
Stan and I went to Paris in November 1987.
It was a difficult decision leaving our children behind to make the trip.  We had our son, Scott who was 2 1/2 and our daughter Katie, 4 months old.
Stan had traveled so much he got free tickets and told me, lets go to Paris, it's a chance of a lifetime.
Even though we were thinking about our kids the whole time we were glad to experience France. My sister, Charmaine, watched the kids and now that they're grown we look forward to a chance to share Paris with Scott, Katie and Carly.  We saw so many beautiful places and people.  
It was the most romantic vacation we've taken. 
Maybe that's why I collect so many French things now in the house.
I will always have wonderful memories of

Now on with the Party...

  14. I know how you feel about Paris.....I was there for 2 weeks in 2010 - one week as a work trip and then my husband came for the second week - So romantic, so beautiful, so historic. I pine for Paris.

    So glad I'm finally able to show something on Simple & Sweet Fridays - busy giving the kitchen a facelift and there's nothing to show off.

  15. Thanks so much for hosting! Life to the full, Melissa
