  • phoebelapineWhen I was three, my parents took a job in Paris and moved our small nuclear trio across the Atlantic. I was too young to hold on to the language beyond vocab for clothes and food (I.e. the essentials), but after seven years since the last visit, it still feels like home.๐Ÿ—ผ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท Every street name sounds familiar, like the key to a long forgotten memory--most likely an indulgent eclair purchase, or in more recent years, a pair of chaussures.๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ‘  It's the smells though that take me back, more so than any shop or street corner. The musk of the metro, the caramelized sugar and crisping poulet roti meeting in the middle of a busy boulevard.๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿ–๐Ÿšˆ I thought I would have more #glutenfree angst over the childhood faves I can no longer enjoy. But I'm taking it all in and filling up in other ways. And of course housing plenty in between.๐Ÿฝ More scenes from the day of wandering--all ten miles of it--in my stories. ๐Ÿ˜˜ Bisous!
