Back from Paris! #Weekend Bites

Yum
Me by the pyramid entrance of the Louvre.

Bon Jour,

I just got back from my 50th birthday trip to Paris with my husband... yes just the two of us. I have never been so far away from the kids. I had a freak out moment... but I got over it very quickly and had a romantic time with my husband.

I promise to post photos, but right now I have to dig my way out of the laundry. The house is in pretty good shape considering it was supervised by my 22 year old nephew with a 13 year old for a chef.

Thank you all for the wonderful birthday wishes... it really was the most special birthday I've ever had. I've been with my husband for 25 years and I didn't think he could surprise me... well, he did! 

Diane
