Fabulous Friday: Paris, Je t'aime.

I can't even believe that this week is coming to an end. I have so much to share about my trip next week that I am thinking of dedicating a whole week to photos and reviews. But, I thought that I just had to give you a taste, seeing as this is Fabulous Friday, of all that there will be to come! To whet your appetite, I've composed a list of the ten things I love about Paris on this Fabulous Friday. In no particular order:
  • Baguettes with butter.
  • Wine. No surprise here. What is surprising is that in some cafes it is cheaper than tea.
  • Showgirls at the Moulin Rouge. So tacky and so wonderful.
  • Macarons from Pierre Herme.
  • Laurent, the hotel concierge. My new best friend.
  • Late night jazz in the Marais.
  • Kir Royales. It is important to stimulate the appetite with a cocktail!
  • Spending uninterrupted time with one of my most favorite human beings on the planet, my mom.
  • The kindness of strangers, particularly Caroline who told us what to see and do and helped us to avoid looking and behaving like tourists.
  •  The sunlight on the Seine. 
My list really could be quite a bit longer, but I'll stop for now so as to have lots to report next week. Hope you are beginning a terrific weekend wherever you are in the world! Au revoir! See you when I return!

P.S. I was lucky enough to borrow my dad's camera, so I have taken loads of beautiful photos. While I am not a skilled photographer, at least a good piece of equipment helped me to pretend.
