Back from Paris, Back to Reality

So Mike and I have been back from our honeymoon for about two weeks.

When I got back to work everyone kept asking, “how does it feel to be married!? Does it feel any different!?”

Honestly, the answer to that is – NOPE!  Having been together for as long as we have, nothing has changed.  Sure we LOVED our wedding, and it meant a lot to us, and the party was kick ass, and Paris was a once in a lifetime experience that we will never forget – but when it comes right down to it, Mike and I have basically been inseparable since we met almost eight years ago.  I knew we were going to get married when I was sixteen.  People think I am lying when I say that, but it’s true.

Anyway, Paris was beautiful, even in the rain!

It rained most of the time we were there, but we had an amazing time!  We went to the tower almost every day we were there!  We went to the catacombs, the Lourve, the Arc de Triomphe, and took a boat tour!  On a day when the weather was better, we laid by the tower in the grass, with me drinking wine and eating chocolate biscuits!  The people in Paris are wonderful, super friendly, and helpful despite our horrid attempts at speaking French.

Our hotel room was small but so, so cozy.  We had a small balcony where we could sit and eat or just be together outside.  A lot of the time, we opened the double doors just to let the light in.  The sounds of the city were comforting, and reminded me of when I lived in New York when I was young.  But believe me, Paris is NOT New York!  There’s so much culture, so much old mixed with the new, and you find peace and beauty hiding in all sorts of places – small parks, the Seine River, small alley ways, cafes – it makes you want to never leave.  We definitely enjoyed our stay, and as much as I wanted to post while I was there, well hell, I was in Paris!  I didn’t even have my PHONE on me most of the time (and it felt so good!).

I’ve definitely caught the travel bug as a result of this trip – and am looking to do some more traveling in the not-so-distant future!  I’m already planning a trip to Italy among other things.  I would definitely go back to Paris someday, hopefully for longer than six days, and fall in love with the city all over again!
