Great post!! This time of year is always bittersweet. I just started a new travel/lifestyle blog – http://www.youmaybewandering.com – I hope you will check it out and follow me! Thanks!

Lovely illustrations. And pigeons in print always make me smile.

Thanks for all the fabulous feedback! I’m illustrating my next HIP jaunt at the moment. Stay tuned for the autumnal French market…

Gorgeous story…and watercolours even more gorgeous! Loved them all.

We’re just tourists, here for 3 weeks this time. But I relate to everything said. We arrived 31 August, taking some time to get rid of jet lag.

Then, on to enjoying the real Paris when the weather is at its best.

Bonjour Jessie,

Great drawings. I love the pigeons. 🙂

You are right, I feel the same about the boulangerie open again and people answering emails and phone calls. Looks like it’s a brand new city !

Everyone has projects (sports, art, museums…).

BUT, even if the couettabra might be “useful”, it’s far too ugly. A nice couverture to watch a winter movie on the couch with a husband is far better. 🙂

first of all, fantastic illustrations! Second, very true about the warmer temps continuing through the month. Last year, at the beginning of October, we were still sporting open-toed sandals and skirts! Let’s hope this year is no different.

A French snuggie?! Mon dieu.
