Hello Paris? Are you there? It’s me, mollytics.
I swear to the good lord above that Paris is literally everywhere. EVERYWHERE. Even more places than I noticed last week. Most of these items below I found from A CUP OF JO – so thank you Joanna. (We are not friends, I just read her blog.)
This week, I learned that she (Joanna) is gearing up for a Paris trip:
In nine days, Alex and I will be taking a much anticipated trip to…PARIS!!! I’m so excited! I can’t wait to walk around the city and take notes on gorgeous French style. We’re taking a dorky but awesome-looking bike tour, and we’ve both been dreaming about croissants and chocolate mousse. Also, I’d love to have a picnic in the Luxembourg Gardens, and Alex wants us to go to the top of the Eiffel Tower, even though I’m scared of elevators.
LM and I will NOT be going to the top of the Eiffel Tower because we’re just not into it. But the picnic-ing? Totally. Right LM?
When we went to Paris in 2005 for our honeymoon, Paul’s coworker, Kristen, wrote up a little itinerary of must-sees. She has great taste and had lived in Paris for several years. Seriously, this little guide is amazing. I’ve given it to several people and they’ve all come back raving about how great it is.
Consider it downloaded. This was beginning to become a super-fun follow-the-Paris-trail game. What next?
Some flickr surfing resulted in the location of this whimsicle picture. I’m going to love Paris in the springtime, too. I just know it.
If you’re feeling sentimental and/or lovey-dovey, you might want to check out this receipt that a cute couple kept from their first trip to Paris together. LM – shall we do this too? SIKE.
Aaaand finally, some video of what LM and I have been saying to each other since we booked our flight, from Sex and the City:
“Then don’t you go to Paris!” It’s so much fun to say. Watch it here: the relevent part starts at 1 minute 20 seconds in:
It’s a heartbreakingly beautiful scene, which we’ve reduced to sillyness. Love it.
