To celebrate my 40th birthday this year, my husband and I spent a week in Paris, France. It was a first for both of us, and we truly enjoyed exploring and simply taking in all of sights and sounds of this beautiful city.
Here are my favorites from our week.
Visiting in the middle of January meant that the weather was cold, but the lines where few. We were able to walk up to most museums and sites with no trouble at all.
Claude Monet’s Water Lilies were absolutely beautiful to see in person. I made sure to get a close up since I would love to use this in a layout.
We stayed in a small, cozy apartment in the Latin Quarter that was perfect for us. There were huge windows that allowed the light to stream in every morning. I looked forward to returning each evening.
I feel like I only captured a fraction of the beauty of Paris, but these images definitely convey the restful and enjoyable week we had. We didn’t try to pack too much into each day, choosing instead to make one excursion everyday and preparing most of our meals at home. Exactly how I wanted to spend my birthday!
I am definitely looking forward to my return.
