Une soirée extraordinaire
If you know anything about my time in Paris, you know about my girl Mel. She's exceptional. Extraordinary. One of a kind. I love her.
She and the wonderful Sophie Berdah of Le Citizen hotel, with support and unrivaled enthusiasm from Gaela Fernández, hosted a little soirée to celebrate the launch of Paris, My Sweet last night. It was... perfect.
It was filled with friends.
Even magical moments. This couple had read A Paris Farewell last spring. Marked Le Citizen as a hotel for their next trip to Paris. Brought the article with them. Were reading it in their room, when they came downstairs to discover, voila, the hotel was hosting a book party by the very same girl who wrote the article. C'est fou.
I offered a clumsy but heartfelt reading.
It was just one of those nights. One of those only-in-Paris, happier-than-ever, so profoundly grateful and elated nights.
Thank you everyone who was there at Le Citizen and there in spirit!
