What a wonderful post. I think I will send for many items on your list. My daughters family was in Paris for the first time two weeks before we were and I see gifts for my grandsons. My son alway got engaged in Paris three years ago and I'm liking that cook-book for them. Me, I want one of everything, especially that notebook. Thank you so much for doing this. I also write a blog and I know how much time it takes to put one together. You did a knock-out job here. Happy Holidays.
