Valentines Day Roundup

4

I have always been a hopeless romantic single or taken… I love Romantic comedies and Valentines Day is my favorite holiday besides Christmas. I have spent time in Paris on Valentine’s Day and seen a whole different side. Its less commercial, you don’t see signs of Valentines Day until the actual day or two before. Bakeries now start to carry heart shaped pastries or chocolates but I think its more because its an American thing. The French love to bring in American influences. (Burgers and Bagels are the hottest items)

Here are a few of my favorite Valentines Day Photos that I have taken over the years. Single or Taken I hope you find a little love in your life.IMG_4452IMG_7299 smallIMG_1882 smallIMG_2811 smallIMG_3178_MG_3425 copy small.jpgIMG_4835IMG_1873 smallIMG_0681 smallIMG_3326

Midnight in Paris

There are many photos to post from Valentines Day in Paris. But since its late I will leave you with this one. Walking home on the Seine it was a very “Midnight in Paris” moment for me.

Valentines Day in Paris

Valentines Day in Paris is not what it is like in the States. I think a lot of people come to Paris to celebrate the romantic holiday but its nothing like the Hallmark holiday we have. I arrived on February 1, 2013 last year and you barely knew that Valentines Day was coming. In the States the aisles are lined with red and pink from the day after Christmas until February 15th. Paris is a romantic city year round. The city has romance oozing out from all ends. So if you are planning to celebrate Valentines Day in Paris you are a lucky one but if you can’t any other day will do!

I can’t think of a more Romantic city than Paris, France. If I could spend Valentine’s Day in Paris here are a few ideas!

Stop by many of the street vendors in Paris throughout the week or weekend and you will find flowers of all types you can buy them individually or by the dozen.

A an early morning walk by the Louvre is one of my favorite places. Pack a picnic and a blanket and park yourself on the grass. Its a great people watching place.

The Romantic streets of Montmartre. A great place for an afternoon stroll

“Love Park” found in Montmartre this huge mural says I love you in over 300 different languages.

Paris in the rain. A magical romance!

Stop in a cafe for dinner and people watching. This one has fantastic seafood

Finish the romantic day with a climb up to the top of the eiffel tower. The sunset from the top is breathtaking! You can even share a toast to the one you love with a glass of bubbly at the top.

Pretty in Pink

Walk the streets of Burano, Italy just off of Venice and you will be amazed at all of the beautiful color. Each house is a different color and uniquely different. The residents of Burano really put thought and care into their front doorsteps. I came across this house that had pink paint chipping away against the building. It reminds me that the beauty is in the detail. Don’t forget to stop and enjoy the small things in life.
