Paris, I miss you......

It has been a very busy time for me and I have not been back to France for a few months. Not the least of which was a new great grandson born just before Christmas.

As soon as I have my knee surgery next week, I will hope for a quick recovery so I can go back soon.

In the meantime, these lovely pictures keep Paris on my mind.

Wishing you all get to go this year too. The magic awaits.  

For a lovely authentic French lunch at a reasonable price go to L'Orillon in the 11th arrondisment.  Typical and delicious French food. 

Something unique which I haven't tried yet but will one day soon is Sunday lunch at Jimmy Haynes.  Google him and check it out, if you go let me know.  As I haven't been yet. It could be great, or not, just different... he says
"Every week for the past 30 years, I've hosted a Sunday dinner in my home in Paris. People, including total strangers, call or e-mail to book a spot. I hold the salon in my atelier, which used to be a sculpture studio. The first 50 or 60 people who call may come, and twice that many when the weather is nice and we can overflow into the garden. 
Every Sunday a different friend prepares a feast. Last week it was a philosophy student from Lisbon, and next week a dear friend from London will cook."  

Bisous to all..... Merci Beaucoup

  1. Wouldn't that be fabulous to attend his meal? How wonderful is that to open to strangers. I bet you would meet some fascinating people there. Best wishes on your surgery recover quickly.

  2. Sending get well wishes to you for your surgery next week. I had no idea and also that you were here in the states. Congrats on your new grandson. My new granddaughter will be born in March and I am over the moon excited about it. Hope to see you one of these days in LA!

  3. Lovely photos. Good luck with your knee surgery!! I am going to Paris in June. We lived there years ago and visit at least once a year.
