A Moment Alone...


Sadie and I had a mother/daughter day in Paris today with my sister and my niece. They had not been to the city before and the four of us had such a special time hanging out together. I am extremely tired as I sit down in my big, comfy chair to update my blog. We are amazed at how much we saw today. We left our home on the Hill at 4:30 am to catch the 5:34 am train to Paris on Eurostar. We arrived home tonight at 10 pm...LONG DAY! That is right...our whirlwind tour was a day! I snapped this pic as we were walking under the road to see the Arc de Triomphe (which is at the end of the Champs-Elysees). Paris was quite crowded this week before Christmas so when I realized we were alone in the underground tunnel I took this. I like that the natural light is pouring in from the street level on the stairs.

It is hard for me to realize that just 2 months ago, I walked through that very tunnel! I sure wish I could do it again in 2 months!
