Sous le ciel de Paris ~ Under the Sky of Paris

"Sous le ciel de Paris marchent des amoureux - hmm hmm
Leur bonheur se construit sur fair pour lux."

"Under the sky of Paris lovers are walking - hmm hmm
On a melody made just for them."

Several weeks ago, I learned that I will not be returning to Paris in January. I'll have to delay my dream of photographing my beloved city in Winter for just a bit longer. Maybe next Winter - sigh. I was so disappointed, that I did not have the heart to tell you just yet. Leave it to my Beloved to continue to make my dreams come true...

2012 marks the 15th year I've been married to my Mr. Gorgeous. We usually celebrate our wedding anniversary with a sumptuous dinner at our favorite States side French restaurant - we save the big guns for each of the children's birthdays ;-) But for this momentous milestone, Mr. Gorgeous outdid himself (he usually does). Today, we finalized plans to spend a week of Spring in Paris. 

Paris is especially special for Mr. Gorgeous and I. It's 'our' place. And it's been 8 years since we've been able to wander 'our' city, just the two of us. And what better place in the world for lovers than Paris? And what better expression of lovers in Paris than the 'Sentimental Walk' scene from the film Diva (1982)? And what song best expresses lovers' experience in Paris than Paloma Bergantza's version of Sous le ciel de Paris?

So, this post is for you - Mr. Gorgeous. I can't wait to stroll the streets of Paris with you, in the early morning light...

Pour Le Gall,
Merci, pour la belle musique. Je vous offre les memes, du plus beau film sur Paris, pour moi. Que pensez-vous?

Vivre! Rire! Aimer!


Mr. Gorgeous & I in Paris (2000)


  1. Mrs. Gorgeous, I too cannot wait to be alone again with you in Paris. It will be such a special trip. 2012 will be another turning point in our decades old (seems like yesterday) love affair. Also, you picked one of my favorite movies of all time.......

    Love you baby...

  2. Mr. Gorgeous,

    Everything, always...
