paris memories

SInce a darling little girl I used to keep is now a teenager exploring Paris with her mom this month, I figured I'd pull out some old memories from seven years ago when my bestie Beth and I studied in Paris. This time abroad was by far the most important experience in my early twenties because it instilled in me an independence that yielded a passion for travel, culture, and knowledge, either solo or in the company of someone else. I cannot wait to take Austin to Paris--hopefully during a 30th birthday trip. But in the meantime he just gets to hear about it every four hours or so, on average.
