This has been a glorious day. Bob and I visited the Jardins Luxembourg on the advice of one of our blog readers and this was no disappointment. I need a new gardener! The day was glorious and the gardens were unbelievable. We sat on a bench in the midst of this beauty and soaked up what was around us from the sun to the flowers, the sculptures the water and the people.
Next we made our way via the Metro (I am so proud of us for figuring this out) to Notre Dame. I was not prepared for this experience. Once inside the cathedral I could not stop the tears. Even though there were hundreds of tourists around it was still an intensely personal experience. Bob and I have enough respect for history to know what a building like this means in the course of time. Words can not describe the place. Pictures will do it some justice.
After the Notre Dame we found our way to the oldest bistro in Paris called La Reserve de Quasimodo. This was the perfect little intimate restaurant to settle down and let the church experience pervade us. We sipped old French wines, ate home made French onion soup and quiche epinards. Believe me, real men do eat quiche! Bob loved his. We too are falling in love all over again. What a lucky girl I am to have him in my life. We enjoy so much together.
Next we went to Galleries Lafayette where the French do shopping up right. WE just looked around and sighed.
So tired we didn't even want to go out, we purchased bread and cheese, framboises and a bottle of wine and are having a picnic in our room for the night. We want to be fresh for Kelsey's exhibit tomorrow. Can't wait.
Good night and God Bless,
