Bonjour! I woke up this morning at 3:30 am with thoughts of my fresh croissant and cafe creme. Instead I made myself an iced black coffee and had some overnight oats with hemp, flax and chia. Back to reality. The nine days in Paris to celebrate my birthday were glorious. It was my son’s first trip out of the United States, so we hit all the usual spots. I loved seeing them all again through his eyes. We stayed in the same neighborhood where I spent ten days in the mid-90s. I kept flashing back to pre-marriage and mommy memories as my family made new memories.
In preparation for the trip I got a gel mani with a tipsy french tips. My mani paired nicely with my aperitif of choice, kir and all things Paris. The gel held up well as you can see in the photos (some were taken more than a week after the mani).
I may hold on to this mani for a few more days as I reminisce and ease back into my California life. I will miss the walking and the endless light of the summer long days.
Adieu. Until next time…
