I was so happy to come back home, but as I sit here typing this … I miss Paris. There’s just something about that city that will forever have my heart. I’m not sure when we’ll get to go back, but it sure is nice going through these photos again and sharing them with you all. It’s neat how cameras can capture things that you barely noticed at the time. From the stylish people around you to colorful chairs and patterned napkins. Sensory overload!
The above photos of Michael and I were taken at the Louvre. I remember this particular day started off pretty chilly, but consistently warmed up throughout the afternoon, finally. Right after, we took our jackets off and relaxed ( Michael made me, I wanted to keep going!! ) at a nearby garden in green lounging chairs, which ended up being really nice. But due to time constraints, we didn’t go inside the Louvre this time around. I loved, however, seeing the architecture in the courtyard paired with the juxtaposition of the old museum + modern entrance. Next time, we’ll go inside. Promise!
The last two images are from one of our favorite lunch spots of the trip, Joli Deli. I had heard about this little cafe from Jenn Elliott Blake, so we knew we needed to give it a try! She actually just blogged about this spot a couple days ago with more information, so definitely check that out if interested. Lots of the details here were simple, pink, and absolutely adorable. Please check it out if you’re ever in Paris. Michael claims he had “the best tomatoes of his life” ( on his sandwich ) and being that he doesn’t really like tomatoes, that must mean something!! We each got delicious baguette sandwiches and cleaned our plates in literally five minutes. I’m sure they thought we looked crazy. Actually, come to think of it, I’m pretty sure we looked crazy any time we ate delicous food. Paris knows how to dine.
