Exaucer

maraisToday’s word, exaucer (ex-oh-say) means “to grant” someone’s wishes or prayers. If I had a fairy godmother, I’d ask her for an apartment in Paris. I’d probably want to be in the 6th Arrondissement, near the Jardin du Luxembourg, my summer home. It has everything  – museums, shopping, restaurants. Or would it be in the Marais? Maybe it would – two of my favorite museums (the Carnavalet and Cognaq Jay), dozens of great boutiques, and two of my favorite places to eat (L’As du falafel for a quick bite, and Breizh for crêpes). Maybe I’ll need two fairy godmothers – one for an apartment in each neighborhood.

  1. We walked past Breizh Cafe the last time we were in Paris visiting family but we didn’t stop in because we had other plans for lunch. Now I’m wishing we did. I’m going to have to add it to my list for next time.
