We’ve arrived home from Paris safely in time to spend the last week of the year with our friends here in Arizona.  I must say that I’ve returned a changed woman.  Paris captured my heart and inspired me to be more creative and work even harder for all of you in the coming year.

Upon arriving in Paris, the first thing we did was head to the Eiffel Tower to see her in all her grandeur.  We grabbed some wine and cheese while we waited to commence our official tour of the tower.

Us In Front Of Eiffel tower
Our first view of this beauty. She was more than I expected.
The Sunset Over River Seine
We made our way up the tower to the upper level at dusk. By the time we were through waiting in lines and riding the car to the top, we were greeted with the most beautiful sunset over the River Seine.
Complete Bliss
I’ve been waiting to find myself in this spot in the world for 15 years and he finally made it happen.

Cheers Eiffel Tower
On our last night in Paris, we made our way back to our starting point and brought Champagne and crêpes. I could have stayed all night.

Au Revoir La Tour Eiffel
Our tour guide said, “One must have to return home in order to fully appreciate this moment.” Au revoir la Tour Eiffel. Je t’aime Paris. Je vais retourner.
