first evening in Paris

Here we are: Finally starting to post my pictures from France one month after we arrived back to the States. We had a wonderful time exploring Paris, Nice, Eze-Vllage, and Monte Carlo. 

Here are some snapshots of our first evening in Paris (after a very stressful morning!)
I loved Shakespeare and Company so much last year, I had to show Anna this amazing bookstore as well! I regret not taking photos inside because it is a quant and lively bookstore! 
Next time you're in Paris, stop by at Glacier Berthillon for the best glacier (ice-cream) ever! I had the poire (pear) + my sister Anna had the chocolate (she declared it the best chocolate she's ever had!)
Love this capture of a women reading and gazing at Notre Dame during the sunset. So simple and relaxing amidst the busy-ness of this beautiful --but hectic--city! 

We are obviously obsessed with Notre Dame! We visited it several times during our week-stay in Paris since it is so central to so many other famous sites.

  1. Beautiful pics! I've never been to Paris, but I've heard about some of the legendary-good ice cream available there! Serious yum! Thanks for choosing me to participate in the color photo challenge. Hopefully, I can find a chance to work on that! =)

    1. Thank you, Bess! Yes, the ice-cream is amazing there! I had heard about Berthillon's before heading there this summer and was so excited to find it during our first night! It was so flavorful and natural-tasting.

      I can't wait to see what you come up with for the challenge! I thought it was fun!

  2. Cute bookstore!! Ahh, Notre Dame! I have to say that I loved the back of it more than the front!

    1. Thanks, Tina! It's actually run by Americans and has quite the history. And yes, I agree with the back of Notre Dame!
