Yesterday afternoon, I received back to back emails and I knew this post was meant to be…
Email number #1 from Paris Perfect had the subject line “This Paris Apartment For Sale Will Make You Swoon”, followed by this description:
Searching for your dream apartment in Paris? We’ve found an absolutely dreamy two bedroom, two bathroom apartment with an excellent setting in the exclusive 1st arrondissement, very near the beautiful Palais Royal gardens, Louvre and outstanding shopping and dining. This is the perfect setting for savoring the regal life in the City of Light!
My mind began to wander to a life in Paris…

A few minutes later, email #2 arrived from Sharon Santoni with the subject line “Stunning 18th Century Property For Sale”. Now my imagination was running wild – picturing a life with a pied-à-terre in Paris AND this gorgeous country house in the French countryside, in the heart of champagne country…

Alas, I reluctantly pulled my head out of the clouds and got back to reality! But, it was a beautiful fantasy while it lasted for a few minutes during a hectic day.
What are you dreaming of today?
Katie Clooney says
Both are beautiful but I really love that gorgeous house. Are you ready for the snow tomorrow, sweet Sandy? We are supposed to get 12 inches tomorrow but today is going to be in the 50’s. Hope you have a great week and stay warm.

See, right there you created a bit of hygge!
OMG, both equally enchanting Sandy! BTW, we never got a chance to chat, wasn’t able to tell you that our friend ended up booking us at a hotel in Paris instead of having us stay at her apartment! Long story short, her parents surprised her that week and she didn’t have the heart to tell us that we could not stay with her, so she booked us at this lovely small hotel close to the Seine (hotel du Roy) for FREE!
I received the same emails and pondered this very thing! Although I will tell you that I LOVe the house more than the apartment! I hope that you are having a fabulous day! Stay save and warm with all of the snow and bad weather!

Hello dear Sandy,
You and I are both of the mind to daydream of fabulous places this week! Paris is unforgettable-every season. We stayed at Corey Amaro’s Parisian Apartment last July and loved it. I’ll take a hotel, an apartment, almost anywhere in Paris. By the way, the cafe in your top photo, Le Saint Germain, is our long time favorite and just across the street from the first hotel we stayed in back in 2003. We return there each time we visit-including last July.
I’ve been busy and so behind on my blog reading, too. Hope you are staying warm in all the snow. You have Italy and I have Costa Rica to look forward to next month–ready for some sunshine, right?? I’m working on a post of Lake Como and I’ve been thinking of you! 🙂
Have a wonderful weekend, Sandy!

Would you be open to sharing both homes with us?! You can’t go wrong dreaming about either. Happy Friday, Sandy!
