Today a special look back to my very first trip to Paris in March of 2007. I went with my daughter Melissa and my Eva, who was 5 at the time. You've seen some photos of our trip together on previous posts here and here. Today I am sharing two special photos. These were taken at les Jardins des Tuileries on a cold and rather gray day. The gardens were almost deserted, which we've since realized, after our trip this past summer, was a delight we should have appreciated more! Eva rode the carrousel with just one other petite jeune fille. How many little girls have that delightful memory?
Not long ago I sent off a handful of photos that I thought my dear Shell Sherree in Brisbane might use for inspiration for her delightful watercolors. I was most flattered when she interpreted my photos here and here. Imagine my delight when I visited her blog for "Francophile Friday" ( that has moi written all over it!) and found our Eva waving from her "throne"! It made her Mommy and her Mumsie shed a tear or two. Merci beaucoup chère amie for bringing my photographs to life as only you can do!
