Vote for Sandra Joss to Win a 5 Night Paris Stay from Paris Perfect
Four years ago my beloved husband died suddenly. We were married for 38 years, a loving and beautiful marriage. Three months before Jay died we made, what turned out to be, our last trip to Paris together. For a long time I thought I could never love again.
Recently, though, I did fall in love again. Robert is a widower after a long marriage. He is very different to my late husband and perhaps that is a good thing. As a 75 year-old competitive cyclist he has introduced me, a 66 year-old, to the pleasures of tandem cycling as well as kayaking. He is very romantic, loving, and kind. We both feel like kids again.
Always I will love my late husband. We shared a good part of a lifetime together. But this is a new and somewhat different love I now share with Robert. I am grateful that our paths crossed and that we were both given another chance to love and be loved again. That is the greatest gift.
So why do I want to visit Paris again? To be sure, I want to revisit memories of my last visit there with my late husband, Jay. These I can share with Robert as I show him this city of romance, a city I love, and create new memories with him.
