Hi, I'm Luann and I'm a Francophile

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a gal that loves all things French - most notably the Eiffel Tower.  As I look around my office, I see 7 Eiffel Towers in view – I have collected several mini Eiffel Towers, posters, frames, trays etc…

Many years ago now when Las Vegas opened the Paris Hotel, I hustled over to see the mini version of the Eiffel Tower and I loved it even though I had already seen the real Eiffel Tower.

This past trip was no different.  As the Eiffel Tower came into sight on our way from the airport, we all pointed excitedly at it and that excitement never faded.  Each day it appeared in the background of our activities, I felt my heart smile as it towered over us like a guardian angel.  

Why was this monument so special?  Did you know over 7 million people visit the Eiffel Tower each year?  What’s the draw?  

For me, it symbolizes all things French. It’s sophisticated, slender, mysterious, strong, beautiful, unforgettable, romantic as it conjures up images of champagne, croissants, baguettes, lavender, cheese, cafes, bistros and of course mille-feuilles from just one glance.
