notre visite au musée du louvre

there is a lot that can be said about this place, but i'm still trying to process it all.

i fully expected it to be overwhelming, beautiful, and awe-inspriring, but. . . it was just too much. yes, there certainly can be too much of a good thing.

our louvre visit was the only time when k and i had a little argument of sorts {and even so it was mild}. i was standing in front of that lovely odalisque by ingres when k just looks at me and says, "grace, really? we don't have time to spent this long looking at every work!" with that tears, yes, tears came to my eyes and i just stomped off. i looked at her later and said "kels, i have waited my whole life to see this place and these works! its just not fair."

hahah... looking back now, it was a silly little argument and the louvre really was just too much. we worked it out, k got to sit down and stay in one place and i got to wander. . .

someday i will go back and conquer the louvre.

more of paris and the rest of europe to come!
