I’m back from a brief jaunt to Paris with my Mom and a wonderful time was had by all. The weather was great so we walked almost everywhere and saw lots of things we hadn’t seen before. We took a day trip to Giverny to see Claude Monet’s home and his famous gardens, visited a very interesting museum that I had read about in the New York Times a few months back (Musee Nissim de Camondo) and hit up a smattering of kitchen shops, patisseries and tea shops. I have a nice selection of macarons from Laduree to keep me company but I’m eating my way through them quite quickly. Ah, well. I’ll just have to go back.
