the timeless energy of a place
hi guys, hope you’re having a good week. i’ve been laying low trying to tie up loose ends before heading back to paris in 5 days. i guess you never really finish tying those ends and it’s really just one of life’s little jokes. everyday there are new strings so it’s sort of pointless and i’m just going to give in to it, otherwise i’ll never get to more creative stuff like writing.
i only realized this just now as i promised to announce a blogger meet up for a very special rendez-vous while en paris.
i’m heading to the maison objet with a couple pals and am really excited to meet fellow bloggers vicki archer of french essence and sande chase of a gift wrapped life. we’ve been trying to get together for years and are finally going to make it happen, and you’re invited too!
the girls have set up a meeting at cafe deux magots:
i have to admit i’ve been there a couple times and always thought it was a bit of a tourist trap but searching for an old photo of it tonight, i realized just how much beauty, history and art has come from these walls.
all of these shots are from the cafe, taken by various photographers in different years, but all with the same outcome. pure magic.
i can’t wait to meet you, ladies, and hope we make some magic of our own! if you’re going to be in paris, or live there (martha, erica, madelyn) i hope you can come!
