Bonjour!!! Our trip to Paris was beyond. As in not enough adjectives to describe my love for Paris. Like I kinda want to move there. It’s just the most beautiful city. Loved the food, the shops, our Parisian apartment, the sights and believe it or not most of all I loved the Eiffel Tower. It was just so much more in person. And the views of the city from up top are incredible! We walked 12+ miles each day and only once took a taxi. We were total tourists, snapping selfies in berets and always getting bumped into when I’d stop on the sidewalk to take pictures of all the beauty. Speaking of beauty – we were there for the beginning of Paris Fashion Week. We saw these 6 foot tall, 100 pound models that were some sort of genetic freaks of nature. You might think you are looking good, or having a good hair day….that is until you’ve seen a Paris Fashion Week runway model! Enough of my blabbing…here are some of my favorite photos from the trip!
Our apartment had the best location – right by the Louvre. We were located in this “Passage” which is pronounced by the French like “massage”.
Pont des Arts bridge – I know the locals hate the locks, but I found this bridge to be breathtaking!
I ate as many crepes and chocolate croissants as I possibly could!
Notre Dame was breathtaking!
Everything was so much bigger and better in person!
Loved all the vendors along the river…
One of our favorite restaurants was right by the Eiffel Tower. Seriously, I don’t think they could have better pizza in Italy! We went back our last night to the same restaurant and to the Eiffel Tower to see her light show and then sadly back to our apartment to fly back home…
Who are these cheesy tourists???
This was the ceiling of Galeries Lafayette – a Parisian department store that makes you wish you were a Kardashian…or at least had a Kardashian budget…
The people watching was divine. I came home determined to be more “French” or “Parisian”. But I think you are just born with it. The men dressed from the pages of a GQ magazine. And the women seemed so effortlessly chic – even without makeup!
Sister and I fell in love with (and wanted to keep) every Parisian baby we saw – the kids there were just the cutest!
My next post will be about our day at Normandy! (I apologize for the huge photos – something is wrong with my blog and I can no longer size the photos. It gives me a headache trying to figure out what is wrong – so I just went ahead and posted anyway since so many people have been begging for my Paris post!!!)
