Finally, Some Photos from Paris!

Eiffel Tower

Here's the backstory: For weeks Doug was saying that he was going to surprise me with a trip. He didn't say where, just that he was taking me somewhere. He kept mentioning Detroit, but I didn't know what that was code for.

On April 17th I met him at Grand Central, packed with all kinds of clothes, an umbrella and good pair of walking shoes. We hopped a cab to Kennedy airport and I was asked if I had my passport on me. I did. Once at Kennedy, we pulled up to Northwest. The next flight out was, in fact, to Detroit.

I figured we were on our way to Denver, to see his family. As we were checking our bags, the frazzled desk lady, who had no idea that the trip was a surprise said, "Okay, two people to Detroit and then connecting to...Paris."

And then I did the happy dance.

Here are some pics from the trip. The whole set is here.
