Snapshots of Bliss

Being able to accurately describe how wonderful the last couple weeks have been would be a daunting task. I have ventured to Bretagne and Normandie with people that I can call my family; spent time laying out in the park, catching up with friends under the new Spring sun; and ran around Paris with my favorite people in the whole city. I’ve finished a French novel, almost finished another one, and am starting yet another. I got fined for having the wrong ticket on the metro but was cheered up by a movie day with a good friend and cheerful, joking French men working at the office where I payed the fine. I went to my favorite restaurant for the fifth time and Pompidou for the fourth, sat in awe of Sainte Chapelle for the second, and bought something at the Zara on Champs-Elysées for the first.

And the best part of it all? Springtime is here in Paris, and leaves are starting to emerge on those trees that have been dead for four months. We’re all shedding our jackets for light sweaters and trading our boots for sandals. The fashion of all-black attire is changing into bright colors. Everyone is happier and everything feels newer. 
And I couldn’t be more blessed with beautiful friends, a gorgeous city, and a lot of things to be thankful for.
