Saturday stroll in Paris


I met up with a new friend today for a coffee this afternoon. Paris was too beautiful to stay inside so we drank our coffee and decided to go for a Saturday stroll around the Canal St Martin. This turned into a long walk exploring the streets of Paris. My favorite thing to do!




we ended up in this room at Shakespeare and Co listening to this amazing piano player



The day ended how it started with a cafe creme

Snowy day in Montmartre


I woke up to a little snow that has continued throughout the day. It has been a messy wet and windy snowy day but that didn’t stop me. … Paris in the snow is Magical!






Watch the world go by…


A new friend in Paris recently gave me some advice about my time here in Paris. She told me to pick a cafe, have a coffee, and watch the world go by. I couldn’t think of a more perfect thing to do on this cold Saturday.


Paris in Black and White a series


Paris, France in Black and White a series. Recently I did a collection of Black and White photographs for the new French restaurant in Chicago Brasserie by LM. The photographs are displayed all over the large restaurant. You can put this collection anywhere. I chose to put this in a hallway since I love filling empty white walls with photographs.

Mix and Match any black and white photographs to create your own collection


Saturday morning in Paris


Grab a newspaper and a seat early in the morning at this cafe in Paris, France. Located just of the Grenelle metro stop is this beautiful cafe with green wicker chairs. Make sure to arrive early because as the day goes on this cafe is packed with Parisians drinking coffee and eating delicious crepes. I had the opportunity to visit this cafe in the evening. I was lucky enough to find a spot at the bar because the restaurant was packed. The busy kitchen was hard at work while the bartender entertained me and others while we waited. Sweet hot crepes past by me on the way to the tables in the front. The smells filled the air as the waiters swiftly past by. This place is on my list to return to on my next visit to Paris.

Marais Cafe in Blue


I passed this cafe in the Marais in the pouring rain and its blue cafe chairs and decor caught my eye. They were just setting up for the day but I hope to return when they are open for a coffee and an outside seat at this adorable decorated cafe.
