Daydreaming of Paris

Does anyone want to come away with me?
I am dreaming of Paris today

If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast. ~ Ernest Hemingway

I want to thank you all for visiting and your kind words.
After lots of rest I am glad to say that I am feeling much better now.

Have a  marvellous week, mes, amies

  14. Ah! this made my heart sing Carolyn.....so very Parisian.
    Have a wonderful week mon amie.

  15. So glad you are feeling better, Carolyn!!
    Hemingway's quote that you share is really a good one and has me thinking about the city I grew up in, San Francisco. I feel the same sentiment as Ernest feels about Paris. There are certain magical places like Paris, that come to mind: New Orleans, New York San Francisco....all infused with a special magic and charm.

    Hugs to you!!
    And thank you for introducing me to this fine quote!


  16. I am so glad to hear it Carolyn. Continue to get better sweet friend.
    I love the quote by Hemingway. Did you know he is buried not far from me. He's in the same cemetery my grandfather is in as well as his son Jack and granddaughter. I visit them every time I go to visit my grandfather's grave. I just find it interesting that he chose his favorite fishing area to be his final resting spot.
    sending many hugs...

  17. YAY, you are better! Sounds like a celebration is in order. Perhaps a trip to Paris? :)

  18. Hello Carolyn~ It's always nice stopping by for a visit. A venture to Paris would be the perfect respite, including a stroll for a confection from Laurdee.

    Happy to see your feelin' better too. I've no doubt daydreaming of Paris is sure to cure what ails you.

    I hope you can stop by to see the Valentine surprises I've got in store. This week starting with...Pain au Chocolat. I'll put the kettle on for a nice cup of tea.
    Sweet wishes,

  19. I've been thinking of Paris lately too and would love to run away there for a while. I don't even care that it's winter!
    I'm so sorry to read you have been unwell Carolyn, and so glad to hear you are on the mend. I hope you stay that way so you can enjoy the beautiful sunny weather down there.

    Take care,

  20. Good to hear you are better dear Carolyn- and good to remember Paris again--I love your little chic bag-
    HUGS- Dorthe

  21. Paris is a dream for me, someday....

    I am sorry you were not feeling well and I'm glad to hear your getting better. Take it easy and keep on dreaming.

    Have a happy week my friend.
    Warm hugs,

  22. It would not surprise me at all if you pulled up stakes and moved to Paris...

    have you seen the movie Midnight in Paris? .... it's fun...

  23. Happy to hear you are feeling better Carolyn! Love to go to Paris with you.

    Take care!
