For the Love of Paris

Years ago when I worked for a company where I had to attend a seminar in Memphis, Tennessee, I visited some of the local shops there during our extended lunch break. I fell in love with a photography print. It spoke to me with my love of Paris, black and white, as well as romance. The seminar was a two day seminar so I drove back the next day to the same little shop and purchased the print, unframed. I took it to Michael's back when there was a Michael's in Jackson and had it framed. This print was special and I wanted a special frame for it. In the end, this "print" costed me almost $400 by the time I added the non-glare glass and all that. So many people have laughed at me over my expensive print purchase, seeing as how I obviously did NOT find a bargain but rather just knew what I wanted.

I suppose my purchase was a good one, though, because I've had it for about 15 years now and it's always displayed happily in my living room no matter where I've lived. I finally was able to place it here in my new house and immediately the house felt more like "my place" than before I put it up. Here's my special piece of art along with my letters of love beside it:

And a close up of my special art that even makes me fall in love with it all over again as I post the photos here for you to see:
