La Vie en Rose en Paris

And just like that, our honeymoon in Paris was at an end.

My husband and I spent our last day strolling hand-in-hand down the Champs-Élysées, savoring the beauty and the charm of a city we had come to love. More than once we remarked to one another that truly la vie en Paris is la vie en rose.

Hold me close and hold me fast,
the magic spell you cast--
this is la vie en rose.

When you kiss me, heaven sighs,
and though I close my eyes,
I see la vie en rose.

When you press me to your heart,
I'm in a world apart,
a world where roses bloom.

And when you speak, angels sing from above.
Everyday words seem to turn into love songs.

Give your heart and soul to me,
and life will always be
la vie en rose.

La Vie en Rose lyrics by Louis Armstrong

Thank you, friends, for sharing this magical week in Paris with my husband and I.

I hope you enjoyed the romance,

the city sights,

and the enchanting art

that makes for the rosy life in Paris.

Until next time--adieu, la Paris de mes rêves
