Happiness comes from such simple pleasures. This morning I was on rue Mouffetard thanking Christophe for the delicious chicken he cooked yesterday for the enjoyment of my friends at dinner last night. I bought eggs "plein air", grainy bread from my favorite bakery, and the best yogurt ever from the fromagerie.

Next stop was brunch with two girlfriends at Nomads, Place du Marche St Honore. Food was good if overpriced - service was indifferent at best. The company though was so good we moved to a bit of shopping, strolling, and a glass of wine at Cafe Ruc. One friend is very happy with where she is right now, the other is having some "life questions" present themselves to her. We doled out to each other in equal measure support and, as Mom would say "a swift kick in the arse". The main point was, "choose how you want to live your life, who you want to include and let the rest go". Perhaps a second glass of wine would have made us all more profound!
The afternoon concluded with a beautiful walk home along the Seine, a pause at Notre Dame, and a walk back down rue Mouffetard. There really is no place I would rather be.
My advice is, choose what you want to do this very minute. Tomorrow you can do the same thing.
