Happy Valentine's Day
with love

Paris, Day 2
We began our second day in Paris with fresh-baked breads and espresso in one of the many tiny sidewalk cafes.  I could very easily grow accustomed to this!

And then to the subway to visit le Musee Louvre.

After a long and amazing day, we picked up our luggage at our hotel and boarded the train back to Landstuhl, tired but happy and ready for a good night's rest.
Monday was a resting day for me.  Michelle worked, and we finished the day with a simple meal at her apartment, followed by home made milk shakes and malts at the apartment of her commanding officer.
shhhhhhh......good night!
Sweet dreams!
