Paris trip: Montmartre 

We've only been back for less than a week but this trip already is starting to feel so far away. Maybe it's because so much happened on the trip or maybe it's because we were really thrown back into a busy work half week and an even busier time at home. Whatever reason, I'm enjoying …

Summer pilgrimage
