the brief scenes of picturesque paris, including trips to the bucherie and views of quiet cobblestone streets, in ‘julie & julia’ make me nostalgic and momentarily transport me back to la france. i remember lunches of fresh baguette, delicious cheese, fresh confiture, and wine from the vineyard next door. it seems like only earlier today i was strolling down the cours mirabeau with my monoprix shopping bags in hand. looking through albums and re-traveling through the country seemed necessary at this point.
