Bonjour tout le monde!
I hope everyone is having a good week! We're currently in the middle of a school holiday, I've been staying at home with the kids this week and next week they'll go to their grandparents' house in Normandy. It's *almost* warm enough to play outside, but we've mostly been watching movies and relaxing.
A couple of weeks ago, Paris got a rare snowstorm and the city was covered in white perfection. The weather here is actually very similar to Nashville/Atlanta. It never gets too cold and it almost never snows. In the winter it's almost always just cold rain. (The worst, amirite?!) So, when it snows, it's a big deal. Thankfully, for this southern grandma-at-heart, it only snowed about 5.5 inches -- which might be the one the best snows I've ever seen, haha. (I have friends from Canada that would laugh at no end if they knew that.)
I braved the cold one morning and went adventuring around the center of Paris to take some photos of the glistening confetti :)
My pal Hope is a photographer and one afternoon, I skipped my french (oops) class to galavant around Jardin du Luxembourg and marvel at the beauty! It was quite magical because our little girl gang was mostly compromised of girls from cities in the US that don't get much snow. So there were *a lot* of squeals. <3
Hope is INCREDIBLY talented and a wonderful pal. Make sure you check out her work at http://www.hopefolio.com/

Until next time!
Spring is almost upon us! *praise hands*
