Pretending Paris… in Toronto

ColettesVDay2016Paris_LoveIn the lovely light of @ColetteToronto , my friends and I celebrated #Valentines Day brunch this weekend.  Undeterred by wind chill weather of -30C, we worked our way through ricotta lemon pancakes and eggs benedict with salmon and avocado followed by pear ginger macarons and pretended we were in Paris!

Padlocks on the Pont des Arts

Sunday, April 17th, 2011

All shapes, colours, and sizes, I discovered hundreds of padlocks locked on the Pont des Arts!  This pont is THE place where lovers meet!  As I walked along reading  messages vowing eternal love on the “Cadenas d’amour” (love padlocks), I met a most charming young photographer who shot the pic below.

 He told me about how love-struck couples all over the world follow Paris’ romantic ritual – Italy, China, Russia, Hungary to name a few. And once you throw that key over the edge, you are love locked forever….

Passage Du Desir

Thursday, March 24th, 2011

Spring arrived so much sooner in the world’s romance capital, Paris.  Spent six blissful days looking for love.  Ooo la la…upon my return to YYZ, inquiring minds wanted to know all. 

What they must do is follow my footsteps in The Marais and then through the Passage Du Desir to find the answers.  No loves lost…only found!
