    It’s always nice to hear good news. I hope the weather cooperates and rain stays away. I am sure that any city through the eyes of native people, especially the two you have gotten to know, makes all the difference in the world.

    I’ve been meaning to ask since you showed a cake you would have given your daughter on her recent birthday if she had been in Paris with you. I’ve heard of French pastries – are their deserts as sweet as those we have down south? Such as pecan pies, butter cream icing, or Krispy Kreme doughnuts. Already having a problem deciding on the café chairs. I may just create a composite a few of the best.

      Pat, as to desserts, the ones in Paris are amazing both in taste and presentation. They focus on chocolate, ice cream, whipped cream and fresh fruits. I will take a picture at one of the pattiseries or bakeries near us. Mouth-watering. Their favorite cookie is the macaron, but not like our coconut macaroons. They are usually too pretty to eat. Oh yes, they have absolutely no calories!
