PARIS - Part 2

Hello again friends!  Thank you so much for your kind response to my previous post about the local Vintage Bazaar.  Oh how I wish all you gals could have been there in person.  You are so supportive!

Today I wanted to share the remaining photos of the trip to Paris that my husband and I enjoyed last month.  You can see the first batch of photos here.  Now that we're 'back to reality', this trip seems like ages ago.  But oh....I look at these photos and it brings it all back...the essence of that beautiful, romantic city.

Tuileries gardens, with a peek at Sacre Couer between the buildings:

Eiffel tower on a cloudy (and chilly) day.  Simply stunning no matter the season...

Romance in the air...

Next is a beautiful building's facade near the tower.  These type of buildings are everywhere.  On our honeymoon 10 years ago, we got home to discover that I had taken tons of photos of balconies!  You just can't help yourself to look up and sigh...I tried to take just one photo on this trip:

After visiting the Eiffel tower, we walked over to the Rodin museum.  You may know Auguste Rodin's sculpture of 'the thinker':

The museum of his pieces is located at the most gorgeous mansion:


Here's a cute shop corner on our stroll back to the hotel:

We capped off that day with wine on our balcony.  Ahh.....so relaxing to take it all in:




Once the sun set, this is what we saw.  Oooh la la!





Our last morning (a bit melancholy for sure) was spent strolling down the Champs Elysees.  Can't miss the adorable Laduree shop:



Here's hubby in front of the Grand Palais building he admired:

...and me at the Place de la Concorde.  Love the lampposts in Paris!


Au revoir Paris!
