A Few Days in Paris

Ah, Paris. I can't believe I had never been there before. To be honest, it hadn't been at the top of my list (weird), now I can't wait to go back. We only had a few days to explore, and these were some of my favourite moments...

The green chairs sprinkled all over the Jardin des Tuileries was a pretty fantastic sight. If it was this beautiful in February, and can't imagine what it's like in summer. 

Centre Pompidou was incredible. We checked out the Dali exhibit along with everything else it had to offer, including the beautiful restaurant. 

Love the various styles of "metro" signs and the seats in our station. 

Part of the Merci concept shop, Merci Cantine served up one of our favourite meals. 

My new shop crush: Merci. This concept shop is the best I've seen. They offer new and vintage furniture, kitchen ware, fashion, flowers and heaps more. The story behind Merci, makes me love it more. The profits go to various organizations benefiting children living in poverty. Pretty incredible. 

Would love to know some of your favourite spots in Paris. Do you have a favourite place to stay? I have to start compiling my list for next time! 

Have a great day everyone!

And then there is Paris... le sigh. So happy you made it to Merci! I want to go back so bad. I've heard you keep wanting to go back again and again and again. I can believe it.

Aah! I am in love. I've only been to Paris once and it was when I was still in high school...so the experience was much less 'glamourous' and a lot more 'economical'. But wow....it looks so much more beautiful than I remember it. I just love travelling with you via this blog.

Oh I know! Once you've been, you can't wait to get back there. Even during our cool, drizzly week there in November, it was still magical. Summer is lovely. There's a beautiful photo around every corner. I love your shots {as usual!} xo

Meesh, Merci was definitely one of my favourite bits about our short stay.
