A Few Paris Photos

mmmm...mmmm....macarons

Finally sharing a few pics from our wonderful trip to Paris. Each day we filled the camera... and our bellies.


We visited the Iron Lady of course. The top was closed so we took in the grand view from the 2nd floor. Every night we enjoyed the tower's lightshow from our amazing apartment on the edge of the Marais district. Really fantastic!


I asked the Little Dude for his Paris highlights. His #1 pick - "the playgrounds." This one is in the Luxembourg Gardens.


Ordering déjeuner - pommes frites, anyone?


I had some fun this morning playing with this photo taken in the Louvre. It still needs a bit of tweaking though.


One of my highlights was a visit to Giverny. The gardens were even more beautiful than I had imagined. Easy to see why Monet once said  "I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers." 

Well, that's all I have time for just now. Will share more soon. Wishing you a wonderful day!
