Last night, I started a new book and fell in love!
I thought you might like it as well
Paris in Love is a memoir that chronicles the year this amazing writer spent in Paris.
She and her family did what so many of us could only dream about:
She sold her house, took a sabbatical from work, and moved her family to
The most beautiful city in the world!
It's the day to day life of a family making their way in a forign land and in a forign language~hysterical and touching!
I highly recommend it!
We were at this quaint little bookstore with a wonderful restaurant tucked inside with our dearest Rebecca.
There for lunch, but as I wondered through the artfully arranged bookstore, I literally stumbled upon this book. It practically fell into my hands from its teetering location on the window ledge!
Yesterday, I discovered this little treasure tucked upon a shelf in my little sitting room upstairs. I decided to flip a few pages and once again, I was enthralled!
Here is an excerpt that really hit home for me.
A tiny knot developed in my throat!
My children are now all grown up, getting married and starting lives of their own. I am so so happy for all of them...but for just a moment, I tried to recall of few of their lasts after I read this.
Life slips by so.... fast!
It is only now,
As I get older...
That I truly realize this!
It's the first of November today, and I can't believe how fast this year has gone by...
I think I will head outside and enjoy the Fall weather. April has told me it hit 80 yesterday in Texas!
It snowed ever so slightly here yesterday!
What a difference a 1000 miles makes!
Just a day left of my precious Autumn before I leave for Texas...
I'm heading out into the garden and breathing it in for awhile.
Until next time...live in the moment my friends...we can't get that moment back, so enjoy it while we can.
