Once in a Lifetime

Overall, the trip to Paris felt very, very special. Being with my parents is what made it more than just a regular trip to a gorgeous city. From riding the metro together to having down time in the apartment to taking in the sights, seeing it through grandparent's eyes and Sojo's eyes made my own eyes a bit teary. It was a trip filled with memories. Sojo drawing in the museum, stumbling upon an amazing restaurant where we all oohed and aahed over the food, walking in the freezing cold at night to the bridge with all the golden locks, and our daily (twice daily) trip to the bakery across from our apartment. I'll treasure all the memories.

What was a hilarious memory was our timed family photo in front of the Eiffel Tower. When my dad checked to see if it was a good one, he was bummed to have found a smudge on the lens. A closer look revealed that a bird had flown across just at the moment the photo snapped. It was so perfectly funny, and something that we could never plan.

For sure, the saying "We'll always have Paris" has even more meaning now. Thanks for the memories, mom and dad. xo
