Team Teal Tuesday ~ A Strawberry at the Eiffel Tower

Part way through our trip to England, we went to Paris for a day. I will tell you all about that day in a future post {England Trip ~ Day 6}, but for today I'm sharing a bit about the strawberry we left at the Eiffel Tower for my mom.


{You can read about our Strawberry Project here.}


My mom and step-dad traveled to Paris years ago {maybe 10?} and she was so thrilled to have been there. There's a photo of her {wish I had it for this post!} standing with the Eiffel Tower behind her, and in her scrapbook she wrote: "Who would have ever thought that John R's daughter would be standing at the Eiffel Tower?"


And there we were, at the Eiffel Tower and Carrie said it: "Who would have ever thought that Marti R's daughter and grand-daughter would be standing at the Eiffel Tower?"


We left this strawberry hanging from a shrubbery at the base of the Eiffel Tower.
My mom would be so pleased!

I loved leaving a strawberry here!

And my favorite part of this whole post is that you used the world "shrubbery." :)

I love these sweet tributes to your mom. They say you leave a bit of your heart behind when you leave Paris. You left a little bit of love instead.
