Today's Wonder of the World is...that I'm somehow able to love my husband, even though he went by himself on a business trip to our French hometown that is SO BEAUTIFUL THAT I'M IN PAIN!!!
That, my friends, is the view outside his hotel room.
Don't you just want to kill him? I do.
Well, I might be exaggerating just a tad.
But look at this!
Okay, now you want to kill him, don't you? He bought one of those millefeuilles and ate it right on the street!
I LOVE millefeuilles! (Americans call them Napoleons. They are absurdly delicious.)
The thought of him enjoying one without me makes me want to pull out all my hair! And then he'd have to look at me bald-- which is just what he deserves!
And if that isn't enough, look at this butcher's chop. I mean shop.
(Hey, that mistake is kind of funny.)
Look at it!
Does a butcher's shop deserve to be that beautiful?
Only if I'm there!
And here's rue des Gras, my favorite street in Clermont-Ferrand.
Did you notice the carving of the washing of the feet of the disciples? It's in an ordinary apartment wall! I've been in that apartment! Our French friend Mathilde made us foie gras in that apartment and it was AMAZING!
But I'm not there! I'm sitting here in muggy hot South Carolina (which I love. Don't get your feelings hurt, South Carolina) and Todd got to walk around rue des Gras and take that picture!
There's Notre Dame du Port!
In all it's ruffly, 11th century magnificence!
And look at this average home!
With an average cat!
If my sweet husband expects much in the way of kisses, I'm just not sure I can oblige.
Unless he speaks French to me. And makes me French coffee.
Ooh la la! Here he comes with a cup in hand!
Have a Wonder-full Weekend, y'all!
Much love, (French coffee will do that to you!)
