the view from here




I LOVE the Arc du Triomphe.  I don't know what it is about it exactly. Maybe its the view from it, maybe because it's such a central spot in Paris, who knows, but I had to visit it for the second time and I'm so glad we did!

Happy Monday! Enjoy your week!

pretty


Just dropping in to say "hi!" and sharing some photos of the pretty things in Paris.

Hope all my Canadian friends had a great Thanksgiving!

stumbled upon


I had no plans to go to the Garnier Opera.  But while wandering the streets of Paris, we came across this beautiful building and we just had to go in.  And it was even better inside!  My only wish would be to actually see an opera there, wearing a beautiful ball gown... a girl can dream.

one of each, please


Ahhhh... Laduree.  Macarons. And all their other pretty little desserts that make you want to eat the entire display. And then wonder why you've gained 10 pounds.  But seriously, how cute is this place!?  My husband and I made it a point to have breakfast there one morning on our trip.  He was afraid of the possible crowds that we may encounter there, so we had breakfast at 8 AM.  There were only two other people there.  I think its safe to say that we basically opened the place.  Regardless, Best. French Toast. Ever. 

Happy Monday!
