Have you ever wanted to go somewhere so badly that whenever you think about it, you get giddy with excitement? That’s me with Paris.
I have had a love for Paris since I was a little girl. The language, the culture, the art, the design and the incredible beauty and history of the city have captured my imagination forever.
Yesterday, I arrived in Paris for the first time with my family. We will be visiting relatives that live here and exploring all week and I will be sharing a few of my favorite design spots, neighborhoods and of course food!
We began our day with a quick trip down one of the side streets in the 7th arrondissement (which is the neighborhood surrounding the Eiffel Tower and where we will call home for the week) It was lined with bakeries, cheese shops, fish shops, cafes, flower shops and even a tiny French bookstore. From there, we wandered through a weekend market on Boulevard de Grenelle that had fresh fruit, veges, baked goods, candy, butchers and more and more flowers.
We stopped for lunch a little cafe on Place Joffre before heading on to catch a glimpse of the Eiffel Tower. After wandering around the Eiffel Tower we ended our day back at the hotel and settled in for the night. With a room view like this out the window, I definitely feel at home and even more excited to explore what this incredible city has to offer.
Au revoir from Paris…
