Tuesday Treats… the Paris Edition

I traveled to Paris just about two weeks ago now, and so many moments during my trip I found myself taking deep breaths, and really intentionally trying to take it all in, soak it all up, live truly in that moment.  My mind would wander, and I’d consciously redirect myself and remind myself that you’re in Paris; live and be in this moment, right here, right now.

I so enjoyed my trip.  The cafés, the architecture, the much less fast pace life in Paris compared to the States, specifically the East Coast, the baguettes, the macarons, the eclairs, the champagne, and wine, and new beers.  The Eiffel Tower.  Oh how I fell in love with the Eiffel Tower.  Notre Dame.  Visting Ernest Hemingway’s haunts.  Versailles.  Speaking French again.  Cappuccinos.  Croissants.  Oh my goodness, the croissants.

The whole entire trip was a treat; it truly was.  Here are just a handful of pictures and I promise to write more soon.


Champagne on the flight over…


Kir Royale. My new favorite drink!


Notre Dame. The Seine. Le sigh…


Relaxing on the lawn after biking around Versailles.






Balconies for days…


I was obsessed with finding the best macaron. Lemon- loved the lemon.


Found it!


My idea of a perfect day.


So many cafés…


One of Hemingway’s favorites…(mine too!).


I will always remember my morning run by the Eiffel Tower. Perfection.

  1. Paris has not been one of those places I have wanted to travel to. But after seeing your photos, I have the travel bug. The place that makes my heart swell and gives me all the feels is Amsterdam – it’s not a destination to me, it’s a feeling!

  2. Ahh! I love all of these photos! Isn’t Paris amazing? I love how life moves more slowly over there. There’s no such thing as a ‘to go’ coffee (unless you go to Starbucks, of course) and they have really figured out how to savor life. I wish that was a bit more ingrained into our culture and that we were less go go go but I don’t see that changing as the pace of life just seems to keep speeding up!

    Let’s see, I treated myself yesterday by not going back to work after getting back from a business trip. I was so overtired and had worked 2 really long days (including a Sunday). Part of me felt guilty for not going in but a bigger part of me knew I needed an afternoon to relax and catch up on stuff around the house.

  3. I’m so behind in reading!!! Your pictures are divine. There is no place like Paris. It’s magical. I’m so envious of your trip! And your run by the Eiffel Tower – so awesome! I’m so glad you had a great trip. Although I don’t know how you couldn’t!

  4. Everything about this is perfect! I studied abroad in Paris but wasn’t a big foodie back then and I kick myself every time I see a foodie travel there now. I would eat allllll the bread/cheese/macarons and drink all the wine. You did it right!!
