Eiffel Tower at Night

By | October 21st, 2012|An Agent's Life, Front Page, Inspiration, Uncategorized|

The Eiffel Tower is amazing during the day, but absolutely stunning at night. Yes, I returned last night from a week in Paris. Although it rained most days (and nights) it did not hinder my enjoyment of the sights and the food.  I walked to the Louvre (my iPad was my guide) and enjoyed becoming a part of the cafe society-- if only for a week. I'm back  refreshed, if not rested, and ready to finish the year strong.
