Yesterday in Paris the Picasso museum finally reopened after 5 long years. It was also Picasso’s birthday which the perfect day to reopen the museum. I hadn’t planned to go yesterday as I assumed there would be huge crowds and long lines. While walking through the Marais I pretty much stumbled upon the museum. Yes there were crowds but the lady at the front told me the wait would be 90 minutes. I waited longer for the Cartier exhibit in February in the freezing rain. This didn’t seem so bad. Plus it was opening day and if people in the states can wait days for the new iPhone than this wait wasn’t so bad. It ended up being about an hour total and everything went smoothly and the space was well gorgeous. Here are a few shots I got but keep in mind it was terribly busy!

There is something about Parisian stairs that get me. Last year I lived on the 6th floor and I challenged myself to climb up and down the stairs and unless I absolutely had to I never took the lift. This lift fit me and my suitcase. When I am exploring Parisian courtyards and friends apartments I can’t help but check out the staircases. Here are a few.
Today I met up with my friend Olivier in the pouring rain for a walk around Paris. It was so fun popping behind courtyards and hidden doorways for todays shoot. We walked a good amount of the city and in between we tasted chocolate and coffees. My feet are exhausted and so are my eyes but I wanted to share a few images from today.
I am really enjoying meeting up with friends and exploring new streets in Paris. I was in my old neighborhood in Montmartre today and fell in love with these stairs. I am still fighting jet lag so I am off to catch up on sleep and hopefully get on track. I promise to post more from today a little later in the weekend. xo
