So I turn up the Glenn Miller Orchestra or Francoise Hardy pandora station, pour a glass of sparkling wine, whip up a French inspired meal, and sort through pictures from my trip.
A majority of my photos have the Eiffel tower in the background. But you can tell by a happy face that my typical "don't look like a tourist" travel act was nowhere to be found.
With my mom in town this week, sorting through these pictures brought back some incredible memories. I must say that I feel right at home in Europe and I thank my British mother for that. I also thank her citizenship for allowing me to have a UK passport. Love ya, Mom!
All this Paris talk made me hungry (weird?). Croque Monsieur anyone? That's right... thanks to Elephants Delicatessen here in Portland, I was able to snag a gluten-free version of this, an option you won't be finding in Paris, that's for sure.
And cheers- cheers to a great weekend. It feels pretty great to have a few days off from work and even better knowing that I get to spend some quality girl time with my Mom and Sister. I'm beyond blessed to have such a great family. Hope you all have a really great Saturday. We are off to go wine tasting in the Willamette Valley. Tough, tough weekend...
