Between working full-time, planning a wedding, and just general life events this Paris post got pushed way out (we went last February :o)! Finally I have gotten around to editing and organizing these lovely pictures to share. This trip is definitely one for the memory books – it was my first time in Paris, we ran to get a glimpse of the Mona Lisa, and my best friend proposed to me! We only had four days in the city of love, and to make the most of it we visited a bunch of historic sites, ate at delicious Pâtisseries, and walked around everywhere!
Seeing the Eiffel Tower and Notre-Dame was surreal. I’ve probably seen hundreds of photos or depictions of them in my lifetime but seeing them in person was like WOAH. Both locations were busy with tourists but it wasn’t too claustrophobic; we were still able to walk around and find nice quiet spots to take the view in.
I was inspired by all of the vibrant colors, street art, and hand lettering adorning local businesses. We walked around so much on this trip and in addition to finding creative inspiration, I found beautiful desserts that made my mouth water and eyes go wide. I have only seen such pretty treats in The Great British Bakeoff. We sipped and daintily snacked on sweets at a few spots but I’d have to say L’Eclair De Genie was my favorite. Their uniquely decorated, glossy eclairs caught my eye immediately and the flavors were heavenly. I of course also was on the hunt for crepes, so we stopped at La Creperie for breakfast. I indulged in a caramel banana dream and Mike got something a bit more savory. As from my stuffed face below you can see that everything we had was delish!
