Family Time in Paris


It’s been one year since our family trip to Paris . . . . .


paris01I’m so happy to be finally blogging about it (and re-living it).  We stayed in a darling apartment in the 7th right by the Eiffel tower and could actually see it from our window!

paris08We ate as many baguettes, croissants and baked treats as humanly possible.

paris11We discovered marionette theaters, lovely parks, book shops, patisseries and boutiques – lots of boutiques! Being that we are shop owners, this was beyond inspiring.

Our days were packed with exploration. At night during our walk home from the metro, we’d look up to see the Eiffel Tower sparkling above us on the top of the hour. It topped off each day with the very magic that started it. I literally have goosebumps right now remembering how special this was for all of us.

Joshua made a little video of our treks in the city for our family.

P.S. If you are thinking of planning your own trip to Paris, I would highly recommend heading over to the Oh Happy Day blog to get some great tips.
