(an abbreviated list in photos)
Two weeks ago, we spent three nights in Paris and stayed at small hotel in the Tuileries area. It was a fantastic area in a fantastic city. (Was it Audrey Hepburn who said that Paris is always a good idea? Absolutely right!)
Paris is many things in the summer: the city of light; a banquet spread over a city-width of streets; a rock concert moshpit ; and a beautiful stroll.
In the weeks ahead, and when time allows, I’ll take you more in depth into some of our favorite bits of Paris. Until then, à bientôt! (See you soon!)

It’s magical isn’t it
Fantastic city! It shows you something new each time you visit.
Great memories of my ” petit mariner” racing round to meet his boat, and pretending to be Madeleine with our daughter. Paris should be experienced through childrens’ eyes at least once…
Yes, I kept having flashbacks to a trip 7 or 8 years ago with our kids–their tiny legs climbing the Eiffel Tower, being so excited about playing in and around the fountains and pyramides at the Louvre that we never even made it into the museum, and Will running circles in Montmartre. And, of course, me having to pretend to be Miss Clavel as we marched around the city.
Parc du Luxembourg – What a pretty parc! One of my favorite spots in Paris!
Absolutely! There are so many beautiful spaces in Paris–every visit promises new discoveries.
Love the macaroons in the shop window – what gorgeous pastel colours! Paris has a timeless magic 🙂
Ah, the macaroons—Laduree patisserie/tea room was fantastic! (And the shop window was a thing of beauty)
