c’est la vie, c’est la guerre

it was a day that started out so bright

breakfast at laduree, while the sun beamed down

all was bliss, until i got word from home

that chaos is at my door

i have to leave paris


i am so not ready to go

i could cry

    So sad! I hope your chaos is sorted out soon. You should buy yourself a dozen salted caramel macaroons from laduree for the trip home, those certainly go a long way towards soothing my low spirits.

    Oh no! I was just beginning to get to know the real Paris through your eyes and loving everything that I saw. I hope all is well and that you can come back very soon.
