Farewell Paris

Remembering & Farewell
 
. . . today was a busy one in Paris but I am afraid I have no photos to show you how I spent my last day in Paris. You see I left my camera at the hotel room. Oh well.

Before we boarded our plane to head back to the states a few of us got together and had a lantern ceremony remembering our loved ones that had run off to the bridge. Before we released the lanterns we shared stories with each other . . . oh how they are missed but forever with us.

. . . as we passed the Eiffel Tower we could see the lanterns floating so gently up in the air. It made such a beautiful sight with the tower being light up.

I sure hope everyone had as much fun with the 2013 Blogosphere trip in Paris as I did. I want to thank everyone that participated in this fun event and I plan on visiting each of you. It might take me a few days to get over the jet lag so I might not get to see you right away.

Hey, any ideas on where to go for next years Blogosphere trip?

We had a wonderful time in Paris! Thank you for booking the trip and helping us have so much fun. The sight of the lanterns with our loved ones names on it was very touching and a wonderful way to end the trip.

what an awesome trip this was!!! and the lantern ceremony was so wonderful, it brought tears to my eyes as well. our angels will always be with us, but we miss them nevertheless.
and here is my suggestion for next year:
argentina! we could learn tango in buenos aires, eat steaks at the pampas, go barrel riding down the iguazu falls, and do wine tastings in mendoza. what do you think?
