The Hotel de Ville in Paris is also known as the capital building. This beautiful building has a grand checkered area in front for people to gather. In the Winter time there is an ice skating rink and a grand carousel.

Every time I am in Paris, I try to leave something undiscovered for my next trip. I knew this year I wanted to do a series of carousels. There are a lot more in Paris than you may think. There are two at the eiffel tower right across from each other! So it begins my series of carousels in the city of lights and Europe. Where is your favorite carousel?
A trip to Paris is not complete without a walk through the oldest planned square in Paris. Place des Vosges is located in the Marais section of Paris and once housed the famous writer Victor Hugo. Today you can find kids and adults enjoying the park that is set on the grounds inside the square. There are also great restaurants and shops lining the outside which makes for great people watching.
Living in Chicago, Spring still feels far away as tulips are fighting through snow covered grass. I recently took a trip to my home town of Cincinnati. They are used to having 70 degree days and the trees are all in bloom. I took a walk around beautiful Alt park and came across this Magnolia tree.
Stay tuned for more blooms from Chicago!
