St Germain Strolling


I woke up to rain in Paris. It surprises me how much rain can actually fall in one city… I walk everyday no matter what so I didn’t let it stop me. We luckily had a few hours of sunshine this afternoon where I strolled through Ile St Louis picked up some raspberry ice cream from Berthillon and made my way to St Germain.

I have talked about the season in Paris before but its really interesting to see the way the trees frame the architecture. In the Spring you will notice certain buildings because of the blossoms, in the winter the trees are bare and the architecture looks completely different. With the changing of the leaves my eye bounces from one building to the next as the greens and reds contrast the blues and grays of Paris.

Apple Picking Weekend


photo 3-14I have been visiting family and friends back in Ohio in my hometown before I leave for Paris at the end of the week. We have had some beautiful weather lately and the leaves are turning so it was the perfect weekend to go apple picking. We luckily found this you pick farm that was a little drive away. A wonderful way to kick off Fall.

Fall Flowers in Paris


If it wasn’t the crisp fall air and the falling leaves you can tell the season has changed by the colors of the flowers at the market. I want to take a bunch of each home with me!





Parisian Rooftops – Friday Giveaway


The countdown is officially on and I will be in Paris a week from today! I am thinking about my first day in Paris and what I will do first. I will most likely grab a baguette from one of my favorite boulangeries and walk the streets for hours. Perhaps sit in Montmartre and admire the Parisan rooftops. Whatever I end up doing I plan to make the most of every moment! What would you do first if you were back in Paris?
