Anniversary In Paris

At a recent dinner we went around the table
and told how we got engaged.  Needless
to say, none of the engagements were
very exotic or romantic.  Some of them
were just comical.

Then we went around the table and asked
the men, "Knowing what you know about
your wife now, how would you get engaged?"

The engagements were much more romantic
and exciting this time around the table.

Hubby and I had been trying to come up with
something wonderful to do to celebrate our
35th wedding anniversary and when it
was his turn, he said, "I would take her to
Paris, I would give her some cooking classes
in Paris and I would slip an engagement
ring into a macaron and drop to my
knee and ask her!"  

Of course I squealed, yes!!!
So that little dinner conversation kind of
cemented what we were going to do 
to celebrate 35 years of marriage.  

We are off to Paris to celebrate our anniversary
and we are going to
Disneyland, Paris,
and we are taking cooking classes
on croissants, French bread and macarons.

I will keep you posted on all of the fun.
Au revoir until then!


Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.
