I am thankful to be back in the U.S. with Mr. Weekend In Paris and our two sons to celebrate together. What a blessing! After all, you are, "no bunny, until some bunny loves you." Please enjoy my Easter tribute to Paris...

I instantly fell in love with the iron lady of Paris and my grandmother's heritage. France, you are in my blood!
