Spring in the city of love

Paris, France

We were lucky enough to find SUPER cheap flights to Paris, and by lucky I mean that I spent over a year tracking flights for very specific dates ;). We bought our tickets in early November, and started planning. For a few weeks after we bought them, I would have vivid dreams of being in Paris, and wake up thinking I had already been. What can I say? I was very excited. I had been planning, saving and working towards this goal for 7 years. In the initial planning stages, everything was overwhelming. We started with the Airbnb. I started reading blogs, asking friends who had been, and researching places to eat. I am not much of a history buff, so I was more interested in the nature, architecture and food. I loved being in Paris for the first part of spring. All of the trees and flowers were beginning to bloom, and I was able to capture a beautiful photo of the Eiffel Tower with the Magnolia's in bloom. I will never forget how amazing hot chocolate is in Paris. Waking up in the morning and drinking some hot chocolate with a croissant and fresh orange juice was the best! If you have any questions about my trip, or would like some advice...please message me. I would be more than happy to answer all of your questions. I hope to do a more detailed post on Paris real soon. 

A few key places we visited: 
the louvre
the top of the Eiffel tower 
arc di triomphe
montmarte district
sacre coeur
palace of versailles
