Several months ago my uncle called me and told me that my grandmother wanted to take me to Paris! Of course, I said yes. And we decided to go during my Spring Break! Plane tickets were bought and planning commenced. I signed up to take a 7 week French class for a crash course – my first French class after many years of Spanish classes – and, in the words of my fiancé, I learned just enough to be dangerous.
We rented an apartment for the week in the middle of Paris, got Paris Museum Passes to see as many museums and monuments as possible, figured out how to find each other once in Paris, and off we went! (Okay, it wasn’t quite that simple.)
There really are not enough words for the week I spent in Paris with my Grandma. It was a once in a lifetime kind of adventure and if given the opportunity I would do it all over again in a heartbeat. I just feel so incredibly lucky to have been given such a spectacular gift. I know I will, and already do, look back on the time spent together so fondly. The memories we created together, the laughs we had, the stories we told, and the time we spent is some of the best time of my life. I only wish it could have been longer.
Here’s to many more adventures in this lifetime.
