Winter-blues can be a bore. With grey skies and heavy rain, I hate admitting this; but, such feelings can surface even while in Paris. Though the city takes on a rather somber mood throughout, I discover that such a sullen state can be unexpectedly brightened just from a simple stroll along the street. Laure and I were happy to change our normal route home, and we found ourselves distracted by a new scent coming from the corner sidewalk. With a crowd of nannies, mothers, and children we found ourselves happy with free crepes and carousel rides.
