Paris

Paris...what a beautiful city!  
This was the view from our window into the courtyard.  
It was just beautiful!  So peaceful and relaxing.  

 I ate chocolate croissants every morning:)

Our favorite meal in Paris was just a simple meal we picked up at the market.
That chocolate flan was incredible!  
Definitely making that soon!

We visited the Lourve!





And the Musee d'Orsay!


Saint Chapelle was amazingly beautiful!
The floors were incredible, too!


Notre Dame



lovely wooden bridge next to Notre Dame

Luxembourg Gardens...


 And we got to see this....
The Chagall exhibit at the Musee de Luxembourg!
A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!
Chagall is one of my favorite artists, so I was beyond thrilled to see this exhibit!

Our last day we went to see the Sacre Coeur Bascilica.


 See the Eiffel Tower?

a famous windmill in Montmarte

Le Bateau Lavoir...I was so excited to see this!
This is a place where lots of 20th century artists lived and hung out.
Couldn't help but think that so many inspiring artists have walked here...

thought this window was so pretty

 Montmarte cemetery


 
We visited the grave of Degas.

Moulin Rouge!

And, of course, the Eiffel Tower!
