|The full moon over the Seine|
I am still working on getting back to reality and my brain doesn't seem capable of stringing words together for a proper post at the moment, so I thought I would just share some of my favorite pictures from the trip. I took so many I'm surprised my phone didn't explode. But, in addition to the one above, here are a few that bring back some of my most cherished memories of my week in the City of Light.
The stately and spectacular Arc de Triomphe:
The courtyard of the Louvre, which my niece and I stumbled upon through a back entrance. The museum was closed and, with a lone violinist playing in the background, the place felt like the setting of a fairy tale.
The cafe in St. Germain where I had a yummy lunch and enjoyed champagne cocktails as we sat outside and people-watched.
Inside the Musee D'Orsay:
The stunningly beautiful Sacre Coeur church lit up in the night sky. The church was only a five minute walk from the loft where we stayed in Montmartre.
Of course, I can't celebrate a trip to Paris without a picture of the Eiffel Tower. :)
This post is my entry for this week's Celebrate the Small Things Hop. The hop is hosted by my buddy Lexa Cain and co-hosted by L.G Keltner at Writing Off the Edge and Tonja Drecker at Kidbits. Visit Lexa's blog here to find out how join in the hop yourself and to see the list of participants.
I'm looking forward to catching up in blogland today and jumping back in in a big way next week when I will be co-hosting the IWSG. Happy weekend, all!
