Last week I told myself that I would stop passing comment on the weather, only the strangeness of switching so rapidly from wearing a t-shirt, to once more braving the snow merited a mention. Even looking back through the photos we shot last week, it seems odd to think, it was only a week ago. Since then, I have made my first trip back to Paris since our move to Grenoble. While it was not all for pleasure, I did did have plenty of time to soak up the city, fit in a yoga class, see friends and do some shopping! It was actually the biggest spree I have had in recent times, and it felt good and bad at the same time. I will have to wait for the warmer weather to get much use out of most of what I bought, with the exception of these boots. They are the boots I never know I needed. Stupidly comfortable and so much like Wellington boots in their fit, really what’s not to like about them? They pretty much go with everything I own.
My visit to Paris, made me miss living there in a big way. Though to be honest, I really wasn’t able to make the most of the city during the last few months I lived there. As Hugo grew bigger and heavier it became more and more difficult to go anywhere beyond our neighbourhood. The metro is really not designed with strollers in mind, and some days my back just could not handle carrying him in a carrier. So on this trip I did enjoy exploring the areas of Paris I had neglected in that time. As I wandered around the streets I most frequented and sat looking in my formerly local Starbucks, I felt very nostalgic, and sad to not call it home anymore. I would like to think that one day I will live there again. I am not finished with Paris.
