My husband and I are debating a trip away at the moment and Paris is on my mind (admittedly so is NYC and Copenhagen). This is a BIG year for us; we’ll have been married for 10 years in September, known each other for 20 years in November and it’s our son’s first birthday in September also. That’s a hell of a lot of milestones, I’m sure you’ll agree.
You may recall (here) that I had hoped we’d be able to make a dash to Paris before our little one arrived but that just wasn’t possible. So I have been itching to get my French fix. Paris is such a gorgeous city, so easy to navigate on foot and so much to look up at. Around almost every corner there is something fantastic to see.
If I do manage to make it Paris obviously treasure hunting of the flea market kind would be on my mind (when is it not?) So Marche aux Puces de Saint-Ouen would be on the cards. But a trip to Paris wouldn’t be complete without stopping in at Colette, Merci, Aesop, Diptyque and for interiors Sentou and Catherine Memmi. A stroll through the picturesque Place des Vosges and finding time to sit in the Jardins du Luxembourg on the wonderful Fermob luxembourg chairs. Ahhh and all the better is the sun shines…..
Ohh and what's better than a café and a sweet treat?
