We are in Paris this week. PARIS. It’s positively amazing. Everyone is wearing sensible flats and looks like a 60s-era movie star. Plus, every single bakery we see is, by definition, a French bakery. Despite being able to say roughly 20 words in French, I am pleased to say that I know how to order cake, cookies, and tartes with surprising ease. Priorities. I have them in order.
And as part of those priorities, I want to take a moment to say thank you to all of you. I did not intend for Tuesday’s post to be the love fest that it was. I merely wanted to talk about some issues that had been troubling me. Your responses were incredible and overwhelming. I’m truly humbled and honored. Thank you all.
I’m now off to shove more sweets into my mouth. You enjoy these links.
