Just in case you woke up this morning wondering what the Eiffel Tower looks like today, here's a picture that I took from my little Parisian balcony a couple of minutes ago. The sky is blue, the leaves on the plane trees are still green and it's time for me to get going to the Le Salon du Chocolat, the largest event dedicated to C*H*O*C*O*L*A*T*E!
If you need a little bit of Paris in your life, put your feet up and listen to these different versions of "La Vie en Rose". I couldn't decide which one I like the most. Which one is your favorite?
Caution: Listening to three different versions of "La Vie en Rose" in rapid succession may cause a sudden desire to dance and twirl around the room. Other side effects may include an uncontrollable urge to go to Paris and/or the need to take someone (hopefully your significant other) in your arms while you lovingly sing the words in their ear.
Have a wonderful day...wherever you are!
