Isn't it romantic?

Paris in the 1920s sounds so romantic.

This postcard was sent to my great-grandmother, Jeanne Camille from my
great-grandfather, Maurice, not long after they met.

The story goes that they met at a street fight.

I find the postcard a bit confusing as he was asking whether she had arrived at the beach in Paris. Having just arrived from Colorado, his French was not too great.

I have a handful of these sweet little notes that they sent each other before they married.

They remained sweethearts for the rest of their lives.
Hope you have a very romantic day.
