FINALLY! After 8 months of anticipation and planning, Karen and I are off at last. What started as just a great vacation week in Paris, has become something so much more. When we hatched this Paris adventure in March, I had no idea that I would become a member of the City Daily Photo global community. Since the start of my blog in June, I have been blessed by the number of wonderful friendships I have made. I have laughed and learned from each of you. Your comments and critiques have been incredibly helpful as I struggle to become a better photographer. When I get on that plane today, I will be taking so many of you with me. I do so appreciate your enthusiasm, excitement, and well wishes. When I arrive in Paris, there will be dear French friends waiting for me there. How on earth did a girl from Birmingham, Alabama get this lucky?? All I can say is, "Merci beaucoup." I promise to bore you to absolute tears with my photographs when I return home so prepare yourselves! Please buckle your seatbelts and put your tray tables in the upright position. It's now time for take off.......
Today's photo is la Tour Eiffel in the rain. It rains a lot in Paris and this photo proves that even in the rain, Paris is magical. "I love Paris when it drizzles." (It's a good thing because it probably will... a lot!)
The Tune du Jour is.... "Paris tour eiffel" by Le Grand Orchestre du Splendid. I think our friend Olivier in Evry, France, introduced me to this song. Merci, Olivier!

This adorable video will give you a taste of France today! I hope you enjoy it as much as we all have!
Eva had it all figured out on our trip in March , 2007. Luckily her tiny legs fit on the tray table. No leg-room was not a worry for her. For her Mumsie....yes!
