I love the buildings in Paris. I could take pictures of them all day. I’m really glad we added a few days in Paris to the end of our trip, but Paris is August is tricky. We thought we did all our research to make sure each restaurant was open, but we got it wrong sometimes. Sometimes we walked so so much only to come face to face with a closed sign. But we still loved our time in Paris.
Sean took a summer class at the Sorbonne in law school. This picture above is where that magic happened.
We went to the Louvre, which might be crazy for only half a day but we saw what we wanted and were happy. The mass of people below the statue of Nike was crazy. I’m surprised I managed a picture that looks like no one was there. We really enjoyed Napoleon’s apartment. So fancy! Isn’t it crazy to think someone actually called a room like that home? I have no idea about the mirror with us in it, but it was a mirror we could be in so I snapped a shot. Are mirror pictures a step above selfies or on the same level? Oh my gosh, or below?!
On our way to the Eiffel Tower we stopped for lunch at Les Cocettes. Sean’s parents got me a book on French food for my birthday in anticipation of this trip. This restaurant was mentioned there and stood out to me because of it’s proximity to the Eiffel Tower but not frequented by Eiffel Tower tourists. It was such a great spot! I wish we had gone for a bigger lunch or even dinner.
Of course! We had to! So Sean had intended to propose about six years ago from the date this was taken right on this lawn in front of the Eiffel Tower. After seeing how crowded and unromantic it is, we were both happy that plan did not pan out.
We had our final meal at L’Atelier, which was a fantastic last meal! We went to L’Atelier Las Vegas for my 30th birthday so we had some idea what we were in for, but it was still so great. And I wore the same dress because that’s very me.
I had so much fun with you, Favorite! Probably my favorite vacation we’ve taken so far.
