The Place Saint-Michel dates back to 1860. The fountain is the center-piece, but the open area around it is where people relax, sit, stroll and socialize. It reminds me of the fountain area in Washington Square Park, Greenwich Village, New York.  It is in the Latin Quarter neighborhood on the Left Bank of Paris.

Paris is a walking city.  The cafés, parks, fountains, churches, bridges across the Seine, meals in bistros, strolls around town such as in the Isle de la Cité or around Notre Dame—all of it lends itself to romantic moments. The city especially shines at night—it is the City of Lights.  And those moments, as brief or as foolish as they might be, create lasting memories.  The Place de Saint Michel (above) is like that if you just hang around for even 15 minutes.

Frank Lloyd Wright designed the Kaufmann residence in 1935 for a family from Philadelphia.  It is a marvelous place to visit. Located in a woodsy area in Mill Run, southwest Pennsylvania, it has recently undergone restoration.  Read about it. See link below.

When we went there, there were many photographers. It is considered one of the most important works of American architecture. We learned that Wright designed all the furniture inside and he even wanted to design the clothes for the lady of the house.    Wikipedia on Falling Water

SARA BAREILLES    “She Used to be Mine” from the Broadway show Waitress.  Composer Sara Bareilles.

“She is messy, but she’s kind
She is lonely most of the time
She is all of this mixed up and baked in a beautiful pie
She is gone, but she used to be mine.”
