We're finally home after a lovely two-week holiday in Paris.
The trip was everything we hoped it would be and we've arrived home utterly exhausted and all Paris'd-out. We put countless miles on our walking shoes, filled our tummies with marvelous, rich french cuisine and absorbed as much culture and history as we could fit in our wee heads.
Across the Seine to the Louvre
If you can believe it, I took over 1000 photos and - for your reading pleasure - shopped at about two dozen decorating shops! I have so much to tell you! We also visited three of the famous Paris flea markets and walked just about every street in every arrondissement. Do I have stories for you...

I have so much catching up to do, with your blogs and with life here in Canada. The office has been charging ahead without me, so I have so much catching up to do at work and at home. But after two weeks of speaking french and living the hustle and bustle of Paris life, I'm ready to sink back into normal for a while.

Come back soon, and I'll fill you in on our adventures, the foods we ate, the things we saw, the people we watched, the shops we visited.
And most importantly, I'll share stories about all the lovely and unusual french decor shops I visited. I'll post some photos of the things we bought and a few of the things I couldn't get home in my suitcase.
So happy to be back, Terri
