This is What I Saw...

...when i walked around my neighborhood at
5:00 tonight.

the kids get home from school around 4:30..
sometimes if it's not too crazy 
i sneak out for a walk alone.
this time of year..the sun is just 
getting ready to set.
the light against the paris
buildings is just beautiful.
look at the moon up there!
i am truly blessed to live here.

i love this time of night..
rush hour.
there are so many people walking 
the streets.
coming home from work..
going out to pick up dinner.
it's when i feel my most
parisian. :)

parisians waiting in line
for their nightly baguette.

parisians waiting in line
for their poulet and pommes de terre..
(chicken and potatoes..
so good!)

parisians sitting at a cafe'..

parisians walking.

and an american taking a 
selfie in her elevator.


  1. You are a lucky girl. Glad you are fully enjoying it. And your selfie is cute!

  2. When I read your posts, sometimes I can almost feel your excitement, as if you want to pinch yourself to check it's you that's living the daily life you write about.
    Love these photos. I don't usually make comments on all the blogs I read, but this one had such feelings from inside you. Lovely.
    Best wishes Barbara Lilian.

  3. ditto what barbara said ~ your continued paris crush is wonderfully palpable ♥

  4. Feel like i'm right there with you!

  5. I love that you have become so comfortable in was hard in the beginning...but you have embraced it all...keep pinching yourself and keep sharing these pics...makes me feel like i'm there too! xo

  6. Oh thank you so much, Pam, for sharing your wonderful experiences.
    I totally agree with the above comments, especially Barbara's! You make us feel like we are part of your Paris life.... and we are enjoying the "ride" as much as you, I think!! You are truly blessed, and we know you realize this... but, I also admire how well you cope with raising four children, in a new city, while your husband is away so often. Way to go girl! This Canadian gal is so thankful for your blog!

  7. I so enjoyed the I do your blog...Janey

  8. Ok, I have to laugh at the last photo! American taking a selfie in the elevator. That had me chuckling! It's a cute selfie though! xoxo, Jackie
