:: Paris, Part 1 ::

We began our 2 day adventure in Paris lounging in cafes, drinking coffee, and people watching…this set the tone for our weekend in the City of Lights. We were so entranced by the Parisian pace of life… everyone seemed to be taking their time. Beauty and charm were everywhere, especially in Montmartre where we rented a perfectly Parisian apartment perched atop a quintessentially French building complete with a view of the Eiffel Tower.

We spent our first day exploring the delightful village of Montmartre. We had brunch at the famously pink La Maison Rose which did not disappoint.

A bit of ambiance in Montmartre…

After walking the steep, cobblestone streets of Montmartre for the majority of the day, we treated ourselves to a Rose Petal Gelato from Amorino…the perfect fuel for an afternoon of shopping. Claudie Pierlot was one of my favorites. There were so many locally owned boutiques in the neighborhood…we simply hopped from one boutique to the next, stopping at cafes to rest our feet in between. It could not have been more wonderful…

We ended our day with a extraordinary dinner at La Balancoire…escargots, hamburgers, Bordeaux, pâté, endive salad…and somehow we saved room for chocolate mousse.
