Tomorrow, we are gonna start prepping for our road trip!!!! Today?
MOMENT OF HONESTY: There isn’t a single time I’ve left Paris when I’m not a bit wistful. The first time or two, it was a longing. After that, I had full bouts of depression. I’m not kidding. It was a deep, longing hurt – I couldn’t get out of bed after returning to the States. I know others who have experienced the same and you are NOT ALONE.
The solution for me was to create a nest. 🐦 I’d ferret away little treasures that I knew someday I’d have to come back and retrieve from someone’s cave or basement storage. (One time, I returned to a granny trolley full of moldy clothes. 😂 I learned from that point forward to not use caves for anything “soft”).
I would book my return flights before I even left. And THEN…. I could breathe. Of course, those long stays turned into a lifetime dedication to living and loving France. 🇫🇷But still, right now, THIS VERY MOMENT as I write you, I’m struggling to leave my beautiful Paris (for our road trip!!!!!!! Wahooooooooo!!!). 🤩
This little love note 💌is for all of you who haven’t been quite brave enough to leave Paris and her immediate surroundings. She’s a trap, a very good one.
👉👉But do not fall for her spell too hard – Paris is not France. 👈👈 If your heart is here, be brave. Leave. Explore. Learn all of her corners. I have two regions left to visit. And ten lifetimes more to explore.
