travel flashback: a parisian photo essay

Posted on Feb 4, 2013

theromanticOne year ago today, the hubs and I were on our way back from one of the best travel weekends we’ve had to date: a snowy weekend in Paris. As per usual, I’m feeling a bit nostalgic for a weekend of red wine and snowy cobblestoned streets, but while the wino and I prep for a few more big travel announcements in the coming weeks, I thought I’d give you a mindless break to just look at some pretty pictures from our trip.

Also, full disclosure: by “you,” I definitely mean myself. New York has frozen my brain, and if it has to be cold, I’d like to say, on record, that I would rather be frozen in Paris.

  2. Shame we didn’t know each other then — we totally could have met up while you were in Paris!

  3. Beautiful shots. I am going to pin a few of these to my France Pinterest board because that board is being followed by a ton of people for some reason, and I only have two photos on it. I don’t want to disappoint my France pin crowd.

  9. So you just had to lead off and end with that bloody tower, didn’t you? That’s all right, you’re forgiven:)
