dreams do come true...

A little over a year ago, I posted this very photo of  a dream vacation that I hoped one day to take never thinking for a moment that it would happen soon or if at all - it was a dream plain and simple. Looking at this photo made me smile and feel like I was there.  Imagine my surprise and joy when I was walking thru the streets of Paris and taking that boat ride down the Seine River in reality!  Whatever you are dreaming of never ever give up on it - they can and do come true! 
This is  a fave quote of mine that truly says it all: 
“Follow your dreams, for as you dream you shall become.”

Have a beautiful day, friends!

Love this little terrace with its view of the Seine. Wouldn't it be a great place for breakfast this morning?

Looks like you had a lovely time,

What a heart-breakingly beautiful terrace. Who wouldn't want to sit there and watch the traffic on the Seine. I'm so glad I found your site. I scrolled down and took a trip to Paris with you. Have been to those places and done those things, so it made it fresh and wonderful.

I love what you say on your About Me. I have followed you. I have 4 blogs, one dedicated to Paris, if you would be so inclined to take a peek.

I will look forward to your future posts..:)
