Roam Around The World!

My 50th birthday was yesterday, but I've been celebrating this birthday from the time I booked my trip to Paris, way back in March, and will continue to celebrate straight through September, when the trip will actually happen.

This was my birthday cake, which we had last week ...
And my friend in Australia sent me a whole mess of birthday gifts, one to open any time I feel I need a "lift" OR all at once.
And yesterday I went to see Sex and The City 2 with my friend Kate, who gave me the card with the quote on it "Roam abroad in the world, and take thy fill of its enjoyments," pictured above. Kate also gave me this cute little book ...
Its pages are filled with artwork and impassioned descriptions of the spirit of Paris to be found at many famous sites throughout the city.

I'm getting ready to roam and can't wait - until Paris!
