It was a year ago to the day that I took a quaint little tour of Europe starting with Paris. Along with my travel buddies, Janet and Bertha, we explored Paris for four days.
Me at the Eiffel Tower
On this day in 2009, we already went to mass at Notre Dame, ate ice cream at Berthillon, endured one portion of the Lourve, gallivanted in the Centre Pompidou, visited the Sacré Cœur, frolicked around the Eiffel Tower, snagged macarons at Laduree, gawked at clothing we couldn’t afford at Colette, binged on chocolate at Fauchon, and most importantly, we watched Silence of the Lambs in French and enjoyed a very odd school girl-meets-Mrs. Doubtfire porn-esque French film called Education Anglaise in our hotel room.
And that was all in three days.
Nonetheless, I wanted to share part of a journal entry that I wrote during those first three days:

Everything seems to smell like butter and sugar here. And I love it.
