Ya gotta listen to Debbie De Coudreaux’s “I Love Paris/April in Paris” FABULOUS! Click on the audio player. [audio:http://www.monasmusings.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/02-I-Love-April-In-Paris-I-Love-Paris-April-In-Par.mp3|titles=I Love April In Paris ]

April in Paris, chestnuts in blossom
Holiday tables under the tree
April in Paris, this is a feeling
No one can ever reprise!

I love Paris in the springtime…
I love Paris every moment, every moment of the year,
I love Paris, why oh why do I love Paris…Because my love is here.

“April in Paris” written by Vernon Duke; E Y Harburg
“I Love Paris in the Springtime” written by Cole Porter

  1. Heidi says:

    I loved Paris when I was there–I would love to share it with my love!! One day. Thank you for reminding me how much more beautiful a place becomes when you are with ones you love.

    • mona says:

      Oh Heidi! Sweet thought! But remember the hint of romance from Norway about carrying beauty with you…..

      • Heidi says:

        Very true. I learned after moving and traveling so much as a family that I had to find the beauty myself where I went. Utah no longer was an ugly brown state, but one I’m so glad I still find beautiful every day!

  2. Amanda says:

    I love that these pictures say “Spring is here”! And of course it helps that you used two of my favorite songs along with pictures of my favorite flower! Thanks for brightening my day with them.

  3. Deborah Smith says:

    Oh…my goodness, Mona…Absolutely HEAVENLY! I am SO LOOKING FOR SPRING…not quite there…but, the birds…are singing, now…the snow has melted…temperatures are slowly rising…We are now in the 40’s…(smile) I couldn’t get over how EXCITED I was to see BUDS…on trees…and little bits of GREEN starting to lift its way through the brown parts of the grass…A former 20+ California girl…including another 20+ Florida girl….it takes a bit getting use to…that SPRING…comes SO MUCH LATER….but, I will say this…I will be EMBRACING…THIS SPRING and SUMMER in WAYS I have never experienced before…I will have this INTENSIFIED APPRECIATION…for every NEW BLOOM…COLOR…when it begins! NOT ONE DAY WILL GO BY…that I won’t desire to HUG…LIFE…for the few short months…HEAVEN…RESTS upon the VALLEY here in this BEAUTIFUL area of Father’s creation!

    • mona says:

      Oh Debbie! I think of you all time when I see flower beds in Europe. I can’t wait to plant my own but it’ll be July — do you think I can coax a few annuals out even then?

      • Deborah Smith says:

        YES…you can…I don’t know about the GROWING SEASON in Europe…but,
        my experience is…as long as you have another month or so left…you will still be able to enjoy…those beautiful “blooms” for a couple of months…Generally, you can till the first FROST…

  5. Colleen Tolva says:

    Hello Mona,
    Love to you and Dale!
    Thanks for the beautiful pictures in Paris. I loved looking at them. Here in Vancouver we have not had much sun and Spring hasn’t been so beautiful here, so that was a real treat.
    The Life of Christ is starting today and I’ve been called to be Main Hall coordinator. I brought in two pink blossomed (fake) trees for the stage, mingled with other green trees, etc. and it looks really nice.
    Enjoy all this beauty! The sun will always shine for you two!
    Miss you,

  6. Okay…so many things to say!

    First I love that you gave me the option to play the song or not….and because you did, I WANTED to listen to it…which I am now…and it is SOOO fun!

    Secondly, do you live in Paris? Sorry, I am not sure where to go on your page to find out more “about” you.

    Thirdly, between the pictures and the music, I am mesmerized and transported right along with you! So, thank you!

    My favorite is the shadow kiss pic….so moving!

    Great to find you on this WW via Better in Bulk.
