I've been away.
Away from my blog.
Away from my shop.
Away from my bench.
I'll give you a clue....
Have you guessed?
How about now?
Yes. I was away in Paris.
My husband and I have been several times already, but we wanted to bring our kids.
They have been on many trips, however this was their first trip to Europe.
We had a wonderful time. The weather was a little cool for this time of year, but nonetheless, great for sightseeing.
I have many photos to share.....
goes without saying....
My husband and I
inside Notre Dame
being a part of the Parisienne crowd at one of the hundreds of cafes
The Paris Opera House
A very breathtaking room in the Opera House. You have to see it in person to appreciate the sheer beauty and ultimate in artistry and craftsmanship
on the balcony of the Opera House overlooking the square
I was papparazied by my husband while taking in the view
Me goofing around. (My kids were soooo embarrased by this). I don't know why?
A trip to Paris would not be complete without seeing the most famous painting in the world...
She still remains a mystery....
and who can resist the French works of culinary art? The macaroons must be a staple because they are everywhere!
these are large meringues
And of course, when in Paris, eat crepes!
