That looks num num Miss Virginia. Just like your posts!
I share with you a great love for Paris. I have family born and bred there.
I was very young when I went to Paris for the first with my mother. She had rented an apartment near the Boulevard Jourdan. Very early one morning we had to cacht a train for Luxemburg. It was still dark when we went by the Cite Universitaire. Suddenly I saw a beautiful, majestic building. Look at that palace! I said to my mother. It was the magnificent Fondation des Etats- Unis!

Ah, I can taste it from here and soon will taste it from there! How can something so simple be so utterly delightful? location, location, location!

Nice shot, V, and I liked your Tardi add from yesterday, too.

Elizabeth, What fabulous news! I'm so happy for you.

Genie,
Yes, you will be drinking out of those very cups in just a few weeks. Waaaaaaa

Maria,
Thank you for stopping by my blog and I love your story about Paris. Isn't it just the place wonderful memories are made.

Megi,
You do very well. I use Google translator here a LOT!

Jenny,
Slow waking up for us was lying in bed hearing the church bells each morning, then this lovely breakfast.

Last March I had cafe creme and pain au chocolat for breakfast everyday so you have brought back such special memories. The weather was brutal this time last year so cafe breaks helped revitalize us. Thanks for capturing this moment perfectly!

Harriet said...

That's my idea of the perfect breakfast while in Paris! As Genie said "Location, location, location!"

Alexa said...

Le big sigh. Breakfast as sheer perfection. For what it is—and even more for where! I see you were just getting to the "good" part in that croissant, so I admire your discipline in putting down the pastry and picking up the camera. :~}

Good observation Alexa! And I love the subtle references to Janeen's exquisite taste...the dishes, the rug, the chair...it's a magical place!

When will Americans learn how to do breakfast?

I had a special treat this afternoon. Dunkin Donuts was giving away free donuts on the corner of Broadway and McClintock in Tempe, AZ, and I had a strawberry filled donut.! Delicious! This reminded me of it! Merci!

Pain au chocolat is my favourite viennoiserie for breakfast!

James said...
