reminiscing about paris ...


I love to live in the moment.  But this morning I found it hard to stay put there.  Found myself daydreaming of our european vacation plans.  And since I haven't really shared much about our trip to Paris, a post was necessary.  


My top 10 fave things about paris:
1. people watching
2. cheese
3.  real french fries
4. the eiffel tower lawn
5. wine
6. kissing in such a romantic place
7.  the plethora of striped shirts
8. beret's
9. french coffee
10. gawking at french women.  

Have you been?  what's your favorite thing about Paris?

  18. Ah Paris...one of my favorite places on earth. I've been many times and I never ever tire of it. And I have to say, my list is very similar to yours. I also love strolling along the Seine and hoping over the bridges to get the most magical shots of the city :)

  23. Such wonderful photos. My husband and I went in Oct 2009 and we rented an apartment for the week. I love your list and I would add :
    I loved the macaroons from Laduree, seeing the metro signs, roaming around the streets, and the champagne! So glad we did a day tour of the champagne country. Def left my heart there and I can't wait to return!

  35. My boyfriend surprised me with a trip to Paris over Thanksgiving - best 2 weeks of my life! I find myself daydreaming about walking down Les Champs Elysees, picking up fresh produce at the market on Rue Mouffetard, or enjoying my espresso at one of the hundreds of little cafés. Such a little slice of heaven, that city. I cannot wait to go back!

  49. Fabulous pictures! I laughed when I saw the picture of the beret, my sister and I both purchased berets I think in that exact store. The fries were everywhere! My favorite thing had to be that magic feeling that surrounded Paris at night. I was there for this past New Year's and everyone was happy, nice, and a man played his accordion on the metro. Thanks for sharing!

  59. You looked SO much better and cuter than I did when I was in Paris. Granted I went in the freezing winter at New Years but our trips were so different.

    We hated Paris. Everything Paris. We were happy to see the Eiffel Tower and all the major sites, but were miserable the entire time. The lawns were closed off to everyone so we couldn't enjoy it and it was covered in mud from the previous snow melt, but you make me wish I liked Paris.

    But alas...I cannot. Just about loathe it.

I love hearing from you (:
