It’s so dreadful outside right now.  I’m hoping for Spring to actually arrive.  When I left Wisconsin today it was snowing so things could be worse.  I think Spring arrives in May for them but they have such lovely summers.  Part of my fear is that we’ll have exactly two weeks of nice weather and then it’ll be 100 degrees.  Ahhh such is life in the Lou.

I’m itching to run away from it all.  It’s a period of ennui that I go through a couple of times a year.  Nothing serious, just wanting a change of scenery.  Of course I always want to run away to the UK.  So interesting.  Ohhhh…wait, as long as this is fantasyland I want to go to France.  I’ve only been once and it was to Paris but je t’aime France.  How wonderful would that be.  Escape for a few weeks with no consequences.  No work pile up, no bills…ahhhh.  I like fantasyland.  I might hang out here until the melancholy passes.  Bien.

Weeee’rrreeeee Back (and there’s no spellcheck)! I didn’t kill anyone at the three airports we were in yesterday so that’s an accomplishment. I’ve decided that all tourists are asses, Americans are just louder.

We had a lovely last couple of days in Paris but truth be told, we were ready to come home. Don’t get me wrong, I loved loved loved our vacation. The villa was one of the best parts. We were able to sit back and not have to go anywhere. We hung out by the pool, under the warm sun and looked out over the hillside. Just fantastic.

I really enjoyed Paris. I don’t know that I would want to do a full 7 days there but contrary to popular belief the people were very nice and accomodating. Paris was actually pretty relaxing. There was a tavern at the end of the street we were staying on, Horses Tavern, and we would congregate there at the end of the day for a pint and reflection of the day’s events. Very nice.

I’m hoping to write a more comprehensive break down of the trip shortly but as long as I’m here more pictures! They all seem to be of Paris but all the others are RAW images and Photobucket’s not having any of it.

P.S. I found a Popener! And something even more fantastic, a pope key chain that’s a bottle opener AND a nail clipper. It was like the kitsch jackpot. I pet it nightly.

Pictures after the cut:
