anniversary trip; paris

we took the chunnel from london to paris. easy ride.

our first stop was to cafe de flore, which was within walking distance from our hotel at relais christine.   yummy quiche and their version of a grilled cheese?

laughing at isaac's jotted notes with 'sleep in' at the top of each day.
we did sleep in almost every day. a luxury that is important to us on trips. even in disney we slept in. rule breakers, us smiths.

we spent the afternoon exploring Luxembourg gardens

for dinner, monsieur blue. very hip place with beautiful view of the eiffel tower. i had the best white fish of the trip with a curry sauce to die for.

we went to montmartre the next day. i loved the little square with artists painting. i brought home a few drawings and one little bitty oil painting. 

a cruise on the seine river before dinner at frenchie

this was a big highlight for me. i love a boat ride. 

i didn't get any pics at frenchie bc the lighting was so dim. i found my favorite white wine there. 

the next day we had breakfast at le bristol. wowsers. that place is gorgeous.

went to the louvre and then to dinner at yamtcha. which was the best meal i've ever had in my life. no exaggeration. i've been wanting to go here for over a year. they were featured on chef table ; france. a great documentary series to watch if you love interesting food. 

 a fabulous way to end our stay in paris
