I've been home nearly a week now and am getting in the groove of the Pacific Northwest again. The weather is so similar, but I would say the PNW is even a bit warmer this time of year. Not a day passed that I didn't need my coat in Paris and most often a sweater too. I shuttled between a pair of black jeans and a pair of dark navy jeans because skirts and crops were out of the question... so cold! Thank goodness my apartment had a washing machine.
I am spending some time going over my posts from the trip, writing captions and enlarging the photos, something I couldn't do from my iPad. I appreciate all the "followers" I had on my blog, which encouraged me to do that nightly post when I wasn't in the mood. I know I will appreciate having that chronology when I go to work on my art journal for that trip.
I feel very blessed to have had the opportunity to experience Paris, taking my time to absorb its uniqueness. At the same time I am over the moon about being home. There is something about being away that always makes me appreciate where I live.
Some odds and ends photos I can't resist adding.

Loved the subway seats.
