Bon jour, Mon Amis!
Ahhhhh, spring time in Paris! What could be better than that?
Since I'm having a bit of "blogger's block", and having trouble coming up with topics to post about (not wanting to bore you with more of my latest painting projects!), I thought for a change I'd share with you photos from a few of our past trips to the City of Lights.
So, if you've been visiting here for awhile, some of these shots may look familiar!
Hubby and I were walking along a side street in Paris one morning, when we came upon this adorable little cafe. It was too early for lunch, but I just had to snap a photo of the menu du jour written on the chalkboard. How charming, and oh, so French!
Don't you just love these gorgeous blue shutters? I snapped this shot in Monmarte, which is the area of Paris that all of the French Impressionists liked to hang out at, back in the late 1800's.
A pretty flower shop, across the street from our hotel.
This is the view from our hotel balcony. We stay at the same little hotel each time we visit Paris. If we are lucky, we get a corner room, where we can see the towers of Notre Dame.
Not a very good picture of me! But, I wanted to show you the amazing Chateau de Chantilly. We took the train from Paris for a day trip to visit here.
I was in love with the beautiful painted ceilings! I remember we ate lunch at a little outdoor cafe on the grounds, where we had the most amazing dessert (wish I had gotten a shot of it!) of fresh fruits and Chantilly Cream. How could whipped cream taste so good?
A view of the towers of Notre Dame at sunset. This is our favorite part of the city!
Oooh, la, la! Check out the red, white and blue chocolate Eiffel Towers in the window of this patisserie! Yum!
Another favorite site that I never would tire of seeing! I snapped this shot from the top of the Arc de Triumph.
Ok, for the life of me I can't remember the name of this chateau. We took the train to visit here for the afternoon. It was just as amazing as Versaille, which we've been fortunate to visit twice so far.
Sorry for the blurry shot! Can you imagine waking up in this every morning?
The chateau had the most amazing chandeliers! Love this one!
And last of all, one of our favorite markets, just a few blocks from our hotel. Aren't these flowers amazing?
Hubby and I are planning a trip to Paris this September, we can hardly wait! We've never visited the city in the fall, and are really looking forward to it. Thanks for joining me today, hope you all have a great weekend!
