Postcards from Paris II

on the seine
Happy Friday, friends! I hope you’ve all had a wonderful week. We’re heading back home tomorrow, but I wanted to share a few more moments from our trip so far. I promise to post lots more details on where we ate, wandered, stayed, and shopped next week, too! But in the meantime, some postcards for your weekend…

rue de pre aux clercs
I thought this hotel on the Rue du Pré aux Clercs was so charming. Look at all that purple!

fountain de medicis
This is the beautiful Fontaine Médicis in the Jardin du Luxembourg. So peaceful.

Wandering around Plaisance, a neighborhood in the 14th arrondissement, in the southern part of Paris. The architecture is very different here, and it almost feels like you are in the country.

The stairwell view just outside our little apartment. We found a great place on AirBnB!

parc montsouris
The very surprising and beautifully lush Parc Montsouris, in the southernmost part of Paris, right on the périphérique. I’ll share lots more about our walk through the 13th and 14th arrondissements soon. It’s a totally different side of Paris, literally and figuratively!

It’s been a relaxing, cheese-filled trip, and part of me is a little sad to head home. But the other part of me misses Lucy, like, a lot. A snuggle with her is worth all the cheese in Paris.

Happy weekend, everyone!

    Wanted to also let you know, I have been reading away on your various cocktails and cure-alls from the B Bar and they have been such a godsend for this blogger. Thank you for putting them together and making them available! They’re beyond helpful!

    I love, love, love Paris through your eyes.

    One of the (many) things I love about Paris is it’s mystic ability to be seen in so many different ways. It seems like each person who photographs the city sees it in such a different way from the next person.

    And it never looks bad!

    Hope you have a lovely weekend. Thanks for letting me live vicariously through your travels today while I’m stuck at home being a World Cup Widow. :o)
