New Blog look!

0

I have been working on a new blog design look for a while now and finally completed it right before I left for Paris. Although the blog look is up and completed. It doesn’t seem to have transferred back to my old blog. So I am afraid I have left you all in the dark. I have been in Paris for two lovely rainy days and I hope you will all join me on the new and improved site. You can shop directly from the site read about me and my life in Paris. Thank you all for following along! Click on the photo below or click here for the direct link to see the new blog look

The Calm

I will be the first to admit my first Paris apartment had me spoiled with two balconies and a view of Sacre Couer and Parisian rooftops. This little balcony over looking the rooftops was perfect to squeeze out onto for a Parisian breakfast or morning cup of tea. I looked out the window on rainy afternoons watching the rain fall. On warm afternoons I would pop a plant or flower vase on the outside and leave the windows open just life this photograph. There was never enough time to enjoy this beautiful view. Thankfully I snapped a few pictures of it over the months. It reminds me of all those perfect moments.

Today starting out gloomy but the sun popped out later in the afternoon. I was lucky to finally take a rest at a cafe and enjoy the sunshine coming through the clouds. Here are a few photos from today. You will notice the red balloons are back!

I pass this man on my walk every morning on the Seine. I just love everything about this.

A winter day in Paris

10

My first day in Paris I made the mistake of napping when I arrived. I slept a little too long and was up most of the night. A few cafe cremes to keep me going through the day and no worries. I explored my neighborhood a bit and walked down rue mouffetard and to the marais and back. I ended up spending the evening at the American Library listening to Ann Mah of Mastering the Art of French Eating speak with Patricia Wells of The Food Lovers Guide to Paris they were both fantastic! Here are some photos from throughout the day. I promise apartment pictures tomorrow xo
