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?

I loved the red balloon project that I started late last year in Paris. Continuing the red balloon project in the winter/spring had its challenges because there were very few days where the weather was not windy/rainy/too cold. I was able to get out for a little bit with the balloons to continue the series. It still amazes me how the simple object of a red balloon can bring so much joy to people’s faces.
I hope you get a little time to sit back and relax this holiday weekend. My etsy shop is 25 % off all weekend long. Prices are already reduced to reflect the discount.
I first stumbled upon this little cafe a year ago on my walk through the Marais. I photographed it because of all its charm but didn’t go inside. This time while spending more time in Paris I made it a point to go back and find the cafe. Au Petit Fer A Cheval means “little horseshoe” in French. The inside bar is shaped like a horseshoe. The place is petit. I passed it a few times without even realizing it. But this is one of the reasons why it has so much character. If you can find a seat at the bar you can eat or drink. They serve a reasonably priced menu and serve coffee and wine. There is seating outside but its limited. If you get the chance there is also a few tables to sit and dine behind the bar. If you are walking through the Marais I highly recommend it.
