Paris in the rain

A few days ago under wet, gray skies, I took a walk through Paris in the rain. Via Seattle. A girl can dream she's in Paris can't she?

My mom just returned from a jaunt to Paris a few days ago and brought me back this lovely umbrella. In case you didn't know, I'm crazy about umbrellas and all things rain. She knew exactly what I would have chosen, had I been there. Oh how I wish I had been there.

Isn't it beautiful?

My mom said the colors remind her of the blues of the Mediterranean Sea.
Some day I'll see it for myself.

A view from inside

I don't know what it is about looking up through an an instant I'm walking along La Seine, smelling the fresh spring blossoms, gazing up at the majestic La Tour Eiffel. Sigh.

And how do you hold your new favorite umbrella and not spin it?

I can't.
