So here I sit, on Valentine’s Day, with a collection of favorites, my fabulous red, crushed velvet coat (tres chic!), a bench in Champ de Mars, jambon-buerre and some bubbles. Sadly, my favorite of all is nowhere to be found. This extended time in Paris is a result of a cancelled flight yesterday and is hence, sans-Prince. We’d all agree that there are worse cities to be “stuck” in so I’m making the most of it. To that end, I plan to sit on this bench, watching people mesmerized by one of my true happy places until I see some darling boy drop down on one knee in front of a sweet, un-expecting bride to be to say, “I’d like to stay in love with you for a really long time.” Yes, I have my hankie (from the Paris flea market) at the ready.
Je t'aime mon chéri
