Paris, Je T’aime


We climb the Eiffel Tower.

I am very fortunate to be a minimalist, a single mom and a world traveler. My favorite place (so far) in the world to visit is France. From the first time that I came here over ten years ago, I have felt at home. I would definitely try to pass for a French woman if my French was better. Maybe I have said it many times, but having a daughter like Bean who also loves to travel is a blessing as well.

Since we have arrived in France, Bean has become addicted to the boulangerie. If we are in a city, the first thing that she asks is if we are going to the boulangerie. While I tend to get the same few patisseries every time, Bean has started to try them all. Sometimes I want to say “No”, but I want her experience of France and French food to be positive and full of exploration. To date, she is almost always eating something. She loves cheese, yogurt, bread and a wide variety of other foods. I find it hard to make her stick to the strict three meals a day and a gouter that is the normal routine. She hasn’t filled out, she has stretched out.

While I want write an update about our journey as minimalist, I MUST share with you some of our favorite photos from France. I hope you like it as much as we do!
