when we only have love… this is the french song sang beautifully by a friend of the wedding couple, serenading everyone in the cathedral. a union in the land of l’amour, set in the backdrop of an old town hall, a lovely cathedral and le charming château, just like a fairy tale… except this is real. i’m glad to be part of this special occasion, to see my dear friend getting married to a wonderful guy (no, i’m not mocking! ;)), to feel the love of friendship, to experience paris again, in a very special way… merci beaucoup pour l’amour, caroline & francois! as the song goes “having nothing but the strength to love, we will have in our hands, my friend, the whole world…” oh feeling so sentimental… must be le air in paris!
