Hidden Treasure

buried treasure

When G. and I were in Traverse City right after we got engaged, my mom and I went to an antique shop in an old barn. There were several boxes of old records, I and grabbed several of them, choosing mostly based on cover art. We'd already discussed going to France for part of our honeymoon, and since I am a bit in love with French culture, one album called I Love Paris caught my eye. I brought it home, and in the frenzy of the last couple of months, neglected to listen to it even once.

Last night I put it on for the first time, and I don't think I've ever been as immediately charmed by any music. It was just exactly what I think the soundtrack for strolling through Paris should be. Even as I was scrubbing the bathtub and changing the cat litter, I could almost feel myself sitting at an outdoor cafe, watching chic Parisians wander by.

It's fun being your father.

I would rather be cleaning YOUR bathroom and cleaning cat liter, then say perhaps, cleaning what I am sure is someones dried puke off the walls!

Fixing up this house has been the greatest thing ever. Discovering how gross people are, has not.

Grandma -

Yes, the plan is to go to Paris for a few days and then head to Italy for the rest of our trip.
