Last night I took a stroll through the tulleries with friends in Paris. The Paris sky put on a perfect show for all of us with the eiffel tower as the star. Don’t you agree?

There are so many bridges in Paris but the Pont Alexandre iii is my favorite. It is stunning in all light and then there are the lanterns. If you get the chance to watch the sunset walk close to the pont alexandre iii. You can even sit on the Seine and watch the sunset. The lanterns will start to glow because of the sun setting. They don’t turn on until later but its a very cool effect if you watch for it. Now available in my etsy shop
I am happy to say my apartment and flight have been booked for early February. I am looking forward to being back in my favorite city and exploring a whole new area. I will be staying in the 5th arrondisement, far from Montmartre. I will still be back in my old neighborhood visiting friends and my favorite boulangeries. I am excited to get lost in Paris and discover new places.
I really loved the red balloon series that I have posted here often and would love to continue it. I was able to cover a lot of ground but still want to place the red balloons around the city. If there are any suggestions I would love to hear them! If I choose your location I will send you a signed print from Paris.
Its crazy to think that it was a year ago that I packed up my Chicago apartment put everything into storage for a chance to spend four months in Paris. It took a lot of planning, wishing and the help of so many amazing people. It felt as I had a complicated puzzle and all the pieces fit together. I am so grateful for all the people that supported me along the way!
I have an exact plan for 2014 but I do know that my life will bring me back to Paris very soon. I have a few projects that I am working on and an idea that I hope will turn into something grand. More about that another day.
So this Friday’s giveaway is to tell me what you are most grateful for this year. Big or small and you will have the chance to win a $50 gift certificate to my etsy shop. Just go to my FB page or you can enter here in the comments.
One of my favorite times in Paris is when the lights turn on in the city as its just starting to get dark. I tried to get up to a rooftop to watch the sunset and the terrace had closed. I ran to the Seine to see what was left of the sunset and I was able to capture this photograph and the exact moment I love so much.
We have lucked out the past couple days in Paris having warm sunny days. By warm I mean mid to upper 40’s but it is February. I know rain is coming any day so its important to enjoy the good days while they are here. I ended up close to the Seine around sunset so I walked to one of my favorite bridges Pont Alexandre and watched the sunset.
