It’s the end of our last full day in Paris and it was packed with plans, so I only had time for a quick little doodlewash of these macarons. We stopped by Le Bon Marché today and I was staring at these treats and wanted one initially, but then remembered how impossibly sweet they can be, so I opted for something else entirely. But they’re beautiful, colorful treats that are iconic in France and make me happy whenever I see them. I’m thoroughly exhausted, but feeling thankful for such a wonderful trip. Tomorrow, will be the last French breakfast before jumping in a car to head back to the airport for the long journey home. I’m really going to miss it here, but it’s a comfort knowing we’ll be back. And there’s a little dog waiting back home who’s ready to be reunited with us.
I’m so tired right now and still have to make sure I’ve packed everything properly. By I that I simply mean not leaving anything behind and then praying that my suitcase isn’t so heavy it gets charged an extra fee with that embarrassing orange “heavy” sticker. Though I thought I showed a lot of restraint with shopping here, my suitcase begs to differ and I attempt to place each new thing inside like I’m trying to complete a jigsaw puzzle. My new little sketchbooks will be traveling with me on the plane so I can assure they’re safe and sound, of course. And the only good thing about my current exhaustion is that I might actually sleep a bit this time on the flight home. With that, I’ll end this post a bit early so I can get to bed for one last night in Paris and dreams full of macarons and happy memories.
