Spring lunch in Paris


Friends ask me all the time about the food in Paris. You may know by now that I love my favorite boulangeries and patisseries that I have found on my walks. This happens to be my favorite go to lunch in Paris which is salmon tartare. I lunched with my friend Gail of Perfectly Paris and I haven’t stopped thinking of this perfect Spring lunch.

One of my favorite views of the Marais I stopped by my friends apartment later in the evening. I could stare out the window all night. The light hit the buildings perfectly.

Paris Treasures


Each day I set out in Paris a different path to discover something new. I could walk down the same streets and find something different everyday. Paris really is a daily treasure hunt. 

Today I met up with Kasia of Kasia Dietz handbags for a coffee and some laughs about life in Paris. She is working on some fabulous yoga bags I can’t wait to see!

Here are some photos from the day in the North Marais:

The more I get lost the more I find my way


Living in Paris hasn’t been perfect. There are everyday language struggles as I try to figure things out. What flavor is something? Trying to figure out a menu, mailing things at the post office, and most importantly how to wash and dry my clothes without breaking the machine! My daily walks get me lost just about everyday as I follow what looks interesting instead of sticking to the map.

But each and everyday I am learning new words and discovering new parts of Paris… I am finding my way one day at a time!
