And then there was Paris

Last Monday I woke up at 4am for my flight from Barcelona to Paris. I hugged Emily goodbye and stared out the taxi window at the nearly-full moon setting over the mountains.In a sleepy haze I made my way onto the plane and before I knew it I was touching down in Paris shortly after the sun had chased away the moon.
I met Sam and Gare du Nord and I was so so so happy to see her! Not only because its been far to long, but also because she brought me a croissant. That day basically set the tone for the rest of the time I was there, a wonderful, perfect pattern of eating, sightseeing and more eating.
Hard boiled quail eggs for breakfast.
A walk through Sam's neighborhood and over to Père Lachaise to give a kiss to Oscar Wilde. I find cemeteries morbid so you will not find me to be a blogger that thinks they are romantic and charming for photos. This is the one and only time it will happen.
And Jim Morrison
There is a tree with messages and lyrics left by the fans of Jim Morrison.
We strolled back to Sam's apartment, stopping to pick up dinner supplies along the way. Food shopping in France is my favorite activity second to eating.
Sam added creme fraiche to the tempeh, mushroom, onion, garlic and cabbage concoction.
A lovely dinner made by Sam with some delicious wine and a viewing of Bridesmaids. C'est parfait.


  1. Oh my goodness, that tempeh meal looks amazing. I can't wait to see more photos from your European adventure :)


  2. Guh, the photography in this post is absolutely stunning! I am not huge on cemeteries either, but I love how diverse the two figures you visited are, and how beautiful they both look!

  3. Excuse me while I flail and cry with jealousy at your being in Paris.

  4. I agree about cemeteries, I feel posing for outfit photos in them is a bit disrespectful. Your food all looks very good and Paris  looks amazing.

  5. wow, that sounds so fantastic! hope your trip continues to be amazing. i'm so jealous!

  6. Commented on a post of yours when you were in Barcelona :) this looks equally amazing! I may be going to Paris soon and it looks like such a place to visit! :) 

    (just started following you)



    p.s there is no better way to start a morning than with a croissant! 

  7. I'm a bit jealous you got to see Jim Morrison's grave, I so dig that dude. Sounds like such a lovely time :)

  8. Aww Jim Morrison's grave looks way prettier than when I visited (a few measly roses and a bottle of something haha). 


Thanks for stopping by!
