Hello world!

I admit it- I’m a Paris fanatic. Got hooked my junior year in college when I spent ten months there. Have been back to visit lots of times. Now I’ve written a novel and guess what? It’s set in Paris! It’s about four sisters who want to get reconnected with each other. One sister has a place in Paris- what better place to go hang out for five days? From the outside, their lives look good. But we all know it’s never that simple and, to be honest, that’d be a pretty boring story. Everyone has something going on, and it doesn’t take long for things to start coming out. The story is about relationships, with each other and at home. And the story is about Paris, too. The fun things to do there, the great things to eat there, the ways it’s different from life in the States. Maybe a different time zone and a different lifestyle will take them far enough away to come up with some answers.

This blog is my way to share fun things that I love about Paris and it’s part of my journey to getting published. I would NEVER have thought to write a blog, but my wonderful friend and editor said it was a good way to get the “buzz” started so here I go. .

It’s also a way for me to go to Paris, at least in my mind, during those times that I can’t physically hop on a plane. I hope you get a kick out of reading it and that it makes you want to travel there yourself. I also hope you’ll want to read my book, whenever I can actually get it published!

I’ll share mine if you’ll share yours….

  3. I am so thrilled about this! Happy Birthday, Blog! I can’t wait to read everything you post! From your #1 fan 🙂

  4. Paris is a place I am yearning to go…I’ll be following you and your novel!

  5. I’ve been lucky enough to have been to Paris twice–so far. Looking forward to going back again some day, and taking my son with me. I hope he loves it as much as I do!

    1. We took our sons when they were 8 and 11 and they loved the zoo (which I didn’t even know existed before), but the thing they loved most was playing leap frog over the posts that line the sidewalk (so cars don’t go up on the sidewalk, I think!). It’s a different city, for sure, viewed from a kid’s perspective, but a very fun one, too! I’d love to give you some ideas when you decide to take him!

      1. I asked Michael when he thought would be a good time to go and he said “When I’m 16. That will be a good age.” LOL Only eight more years! Enough time to save up and do it right!

  6. Marty:
    Terri and I LOVE the fact that Paris its one of the worlds’ great walking cities. The markets,.cafes, bookstores…especially in the 11th Arrondisement. 🙂
    Welcome to the blogosphere!

  7. Look forward to following ya! Love the bakery picture…..YUM!!!!!!!!

  8. What I remember about Paris (I went when I was 25 and single) was not the good looking food!

  9. Looking forward to your ideas and anecdotes about Paris. We bought a book last year that has a list of the best gardens to visit in Paris. You need to borrow it…it is very cool. Congrats on the new blog…keep on blogging…

    1. We have a book called “Hidden Gardens” – is that the one you have? We have picked out a couple already to use as destination spots on our walks next time we go.

  10. Marty – this is fabulous! I look forward to following your exciting progress.

  11. Very cool you are doing this!

  12. I love being able to go to Paris through your writing. It’s great!
