And So....Adieu, Adieu

And so adieu, adieu seems the year has raced by in a flash.

Living in Paris for the past 9 months...and what a dream it's been.  A little window of opportunity opened...and Pierre and I flew away to Paris.  No regrets.
The beauty of Paris was just plain dreamy.  We lived a Parisian life.  Travelled a bit too...saw places and things I never dreamt we'd see.  So good to explore it with someone you always want to be with...forever.
I collaged...made glorious messes...took art workshops...spoke a little French with the locals...braved Le Metro...explored my favourite places over and over...spent perfect Paris days with Pierre...met our trés gentile Parisian neighbours, Dominic et Marie Françoise...and enjoyed many a rendez-vous with Even, my local quartier fleuriste...what a beautiful bounty of blossoms he keeps.
Back from Even's.
Roof-top cascade of iridescent bubbles...rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré.
Shelter from the rain...rue Saint-Honoré.
Away from the madding crowd...rue du Pont Louis-Philippe.
Pondering the meaning of les philosophes, rue Vielle de Temple.
Buren's brilliance...courtyard, Palais Royal.
I blogged...over and over...100 posts!  I wanted to share our Parisian adventure with you.
So today...Paris Rendez-vous is officially 1 year old!

And this is my 100th, and final post for Paris Rendez-vous.  That's a grand number to end on I think!

A million merci beaucoup tout le monde for following my blog.  I hope you've enjoyed it as much as I've loved sharing it with you.

Very much appreciated your comments and emails too.  So kind of you to send them to me. They were always a joy to receive.

So...adieu, adieu tout le monde...I sincerely hope your 2013 is filled with good health, people you love, lots and lots of happiness...and especially, Paris.
Bonne Année 2013
Adieu et Au Revoir
