SHOPPING IN PARIS IS LIKE A WALMART SHOPPER ( ME) GOING TO NEIMAN MARCUS + NORDSTROM EVERY SINGLE DAY!
and I’m not talking luxury items, but rather plain ordinary tights to keep my legs warm, or a simple top, or some shoes, good shoes, but nevertheless, what I encouter blows me away.
Today I bought new shoes, it’s a brand I get in the States, but they’re French so they were only a few euros more than what I’d pay in St Louis. Still – it shocked me, but my feet thank me as they are very good walking shoes. ( Mephisto). I felt guilty even looking in the windows for anything else. I finally saw a top I could afford because I have the same clothes I came with 8 weeks ago in a CARRYON and they are few and far between and looking a bit shabby. This top would be about $7.00 at Kohls, but I’m not going to even think about this for any longer. It was on sale, and that in itself is a huge deal.
I could go on…..but why? The TITLE of this post says it all and more. Still, still all that being said, I am very grateful to be here and make the best of what we’ve have, because we have SO MUCH. God is good. All of the time.
