Goodbye August, Hello September

It’s been quiet around here on the blog…Summer/August has been hectic (not that we are complaining :)) with the trip to London and Iceland, work, friends’ visits to Paris, trips to Belgium and La Rochelle. A fruitful month it was and as September comes along, hints of La Rentrée – i.e. the French “return” to work and schools after a long vacation in August – are popping up everywhere. Gone are the days of quiet Parisian street, devoid of traffic and semi-empty metro rides during the peak hours. Summer is also bidding farewell as the mercury drops and the long daylight hours are slowly dwindling. A tad sad I am but September and the months ahead will be full of new adventures and encounters so I’ll say farewell to l’été with a big smile, thankful for all that we’ve got to experience and looking forward to new exploits and memories in the months ahead.  A toast to summer🙂

Meanwhile, it’s our first weekend to ourselves in Paris since July and we are looking forward to it. Enjoying the last bit of a quiet Paris before everyone comes back from vacation. The day started off on a great note with a 15km run together around the Champ de Mars park where Eiffel Tower stands, followed by yummy sushi and ramen.🙂

🙂 The simple pleasures of life🙂

Bon week-end à toutes et tous! We’ll be back with more updates and posts on “Fantasy Fridays” soon🙂

One thought on “Goodbye August, Hello September

  1. I love the summer – but I welcome September. Here in the country we light the Chimera and sit outside at dusk. This is when the Canadian geese fly overhead in enormous V shaped flocks. Some fly so low we can hear the whisper of their wings over the sound of their honking. They are heading east to one of the few remaining bogs in the world, to settle down for the night. Virginia
