The end is near

Greetings from the land of café au lait and high fashion. I am writing this from our quaint little Paris apartment - we have just finished breakfast and are about to head out for a day of shopping. Yes, this could be very dangereuse.
This has been a journey of a lifetime and as the day of departure draws near, our level of exhaustion has been nearly unbearable. With all the sights and experiences to absorb we are worried that we may not be appreciating everything the way we should. But I still can't believe that I've climbed the stairs of the Eiffel tower, visited a concentration camp, bicycled through the streets of Holland, and been in the same room as an original picasso. I am so grateful for every moment and we still have 2 more days in Paris so I better make this short so we can get going and paint the town red. Did I happen to mention that the coffee is amazing here? I may consider moving to Paris just for the café au lait.
Anyways, more on this adventure next week when we are back home. That is if I can get out of bed - I think we may sleep for a month when we get there.

Check out some of our photos here

It sounds like you're having a fab time. Really enjoyed your photo's on Flickr - have been to Europe lots (before having kids) as it's right on our doorstep but it always feels so wonderful (like being in a film) to be in Paris. Looking forward to reading and seeing more when you get back.

Wonderful pix. Can't wait for you to be back and recharged with new inspiration in your new work. My better half was telling me the wonderful arts she saw in Paris and Europe and I love to see it one day. In the mean time, thanks for your wonderful pix.
