Today I want to wish my partner in crime Donna Potts a Happy Birthday.  3 years ago today Donna and her husband Geoff and Michael and I left for Paris, the year before Donna had asked me what I thought we should do for her 40th birthday and I looked at her and said Paris.  Well we made it happen and it was so worth it, Paris in the Springtime is amazing, and I thought today I would share with you some pictures from that trip.  I’ve shared a few pics from Paris before, but I’ll honestly use any excuse to go through my pictures and pick out a few more.  So sit back, relax and walk the streets of the City of Light with us, Enjoy!!!
