    Even the ordinary is extraordinary in Paris. Colorful outdoor markets for produce is one of my favorite things. The churches are all interesting in their architectural and stained glass features. You are the queen of bargain shopping and you always select beautiful pieces.

      Merci, Cindi! Shopping is so difficult for me here. You’d think after all these years, it would get easier and less intimidating but it doesn’t. I have no closed toed shoes except tennis shoes so guess I will have to make those work except for dress up. Wish you guys were here! We’d go shoe shopping together.

    Yes, they are, Linda. I agree with Judy. And don’t bother to explain what you do all day in Paris! We know. You are “being there.”

    This weekend was especially difficult but luckily Montgomery received very little damaging rain from Ida. Pictures from Louisiana are heart-breaking. Parts of the barrier islands are completely cut off. New Orleans is totally dark.

    Thank you again for showing us so many aspects of the city you love. I really think you should stay as long as you can, my friends. This place is going to be a big shock when you get back. 🙂 I know you are keeping up. So happy for your trip this time, and the memories that will sustain. I hope Europe is open to USA travelers next summer.

    How lovely to read and see this on this crazy rainy morning! Gorgeous photos – I particularly love the amazing panoply of tomatoes. Keep well and know how very much joy you bring with your posts. You brighten every day. Best to you both!

    Such a welcomed break for us with all the stresses experiencing. Looking forward to when we begin to feel fall temps. Love the purse. Just the right size. Do you try those exotic fruits? Tomatoes look amazing. And so far, surgery is still a go. We pray each day they don’t call to cancel.

      Prayers for the surgery! I like the regular figues and the papaya but haven’t tried the other, but may give the little green Prunes a try.

    I really love the photos of fruit and veggies- food as art. I also enjoy the lovers you manage to find each day. Remember that tee shirt that read “Paris is for Lovers” ? It really is.
    Thanks for your posts!

      Merci, Beth! I’ve gotten many dirty looks and was yelled at once taking these lover photos. Yikes!
