From Boston to Paris

Eiffel Tower in ParisOur lives can change in an instant. The horror that happened in Paris yesterday changed so many.  I can barely get my head around it. Like after the Boston Marathon bombing.

The week that I spent in Paris in 1994 was life changing in so many good ways and I have longed to return.

This picture is from my trip. So many memories.

Paris, you are in my heart and my thoughts. Toujours.


My Future Wine Appreciation Tour: Quincy, France

Quincy France wine bottleThis blog has suddenly become more wine oriented. I just saw this tweet and learned that Domaine de Villalin is wine from Quincy. Quincy in France that is.

The French Quincy is part of the Loire Valley and known for their Sauvignon Blanc grapes and dry wine. While that is not my current favorite type of wine, I am intrigued.

There should be some sort of exchange program between the two Quincys. I could be the Quincy Massachusetts Food Blogger Goodwill Ambassador and visit France on a wine appreciation tour. Maybe learn to like dry wines. It could happen right?

While I contemplate my future tour on this very cold winter day, I hope you are staying warm and have a great weekend!
