Fete de la Chandeleur – French Crepe Day

1

If you visit Paris you will find street vendors selling crepes all over the city. They are at the eiffel tower, the Marais and there are a bunch on every corner in Montmartre. Two years ago arrived in Paris for my original 3 months stay and was thrilled to find out it was French Crepe Day. If I could love the city any more on a cold February day they celebrate the eating of crepes with a holiday? Sign me up! I celebrated a day early yesterday with my friends Alexis and Bree and their adorable babies. My favorite it banana and nutella. What’s yours?

Winter in Paris

4

I have spent every season in Paris. Between trips back and forth over the years I have covered them all. I have spent more time in Paris during some seasons and less in others, Winter being the longest season. I didn’t plan it that way it has just happened. The city changes so much from season to season. During the Winter its mostly locals and a few tourists. Its one of my favorite times to be in the city. You rarely have to fight crowds, you can usually find a spot on the terrace under the heater at a a cafe, and the city looks different without all the greenery. You can actually see the rooftops and the haussman buildings along the seine. As Springtime comes those trees fill with buds and bright green leaves pretty quickly. Here are a few of my favorite winter scenes in Paris.

Home sick for Paris

2

It finally feels like Summer in Chicago. Almost over night the temperature increased about 30 degrees and everyone is out and about. Tables line the streets and al fresco dining has begun. Summer in Chicago is the best time of the year. Its what Chicagoans look forward most especially after such a brutal winter. I have been editing images for the last couple of days while I work on a project and I can’t help but feel homesick for Paris…

Happy Birthday Madame Eiffel

6

Today 125 years ago the eiffel tower was completed in Paris, France. I don’t feel like a trip to Paris is real until I see her. The eiffel tower sparkles every hour on the hour after dark. You can see the eiffel tower best at night from the Trocadero which is just across the street from the eiffel tower. There is a metro stop right there so you really can’t miss it!

Chasing the Paris light

8

When I woke up today it a cold winter rainy gloomy day in Paris. I headed to the Bastille market early and because of the rain not all of the vendors were there. I spent time looking up and down the aisles. One thing led to another and I had a full bag. It all started with the fresh beautiful eggs I couldn’t resist. Then I found breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Those photos will have to wait for another day. After heading home to cook and do work I was hesitant about heading out in the now hail that was happening outside. Then all of the sudden through my window peaked the sun! So I headed out and the light continued for about two glorious hours while I chased it around Paris.

Sun and Rain

Today started out filled with sunshine. So much I regretted not packing my sunglasses. The weather shifted as I was on Rue Cler and felt like it was going to rain for a while. I thought the exhibit at the Palais Royal with Cartier was a good place to escape the rain. Sadly so did the rest of Paris. I made the mistake of not preordering my ticket and lets just say I waited too long. It started to rain towards the end of my wait. I am happy to report it was well worth the wait. The exhibit was beautiful and I highly recommend it if you can swing it before it closes February 16.
