Where Have I Been? France Darling!

I disappeared for a bit. Lo siento. In truth this little muse needed some inspiration herself. So I jumped a flight to Europe. I had tea at Harrods in London. Stopped by Oxford to do some talking and grabbed a Ben's Cookie and Moo Moo's Milkshake in the Covered Market. I barely made it to Paris on the EuroStar during the "storm of the century." I took a class on cakes at Le Cordon Bleu, wrote at the infamous Shakespeare & Co., and slept in a bed there that looked like a train birth. I drove cross country to Aix en Provence, ate nothing but cheese and chocolate for 2 weeks, and dropped 7 lbs. I made wonderful new friends and saw crazy old ones. I spent my last few glorious days in Paris hunting for the finest hot chocolate at Les Deux Magot, Laduree, and Angelina. I am currently looking for mules to smuggle me back hot chocolate from Angelina, tea from Mariage Freres or Macaroons from Laduree. Or maybe I'll just order them online.

In a word, I'm back. Time to get back to work. In no particular order here are some pictures for you amusement...
