thing i love: parisian spring

i've found myself pining for paris recently. when i received these images in my in box, i knew i was a goner. you know, in one of those "ah, let me just check my miles" kind of ways.

good news, i've got enough to make a {free} jaunt happen and am contemplating the best mini escape to the city of light.

a girl needs her fix. in a way that only this beautiful backdrop can provide. bisous. x

I'm pining too! This is the first time in three years I am not going to Paris for a month... I miss it SO MUCH!

Perhaps your mini-holiday will include a Josy Mermet makeover, fabulous new glasses frames from Les Lunettes d'Also (I buy a new pair every time I go), and tea with mile-high lemon meringue pie at Le Loir dans le Theiere...

Please do go and take lots of pictures for the rest of us who are jonesing for a Paris fix!

A couple of my favorite places in the Marais, close to the Place des Vosges:

Le Thé des Ecrivains
16 Rue des Minimes, 75003
Gorgeous paper goods and a tea room.

Jacques Génin
133 Rue de Turenne, 75003
An amazing temple of chocolate-love the basil truffles and mango caramels!

Also on my Paris wish list, in Monmartre:
Musée de la Vie Romantique
16 Rue Chaptal, 75009
I haven't been there yet, but they have a salon de thé in a rose garden which sounds tres sympathique should you happen to be in the neighborhood...

I should note that Les Lunettes d'Also and Le Loir dans la Theiere are both right in the middle of the Marais as well :-)

Also steps away, Rose Bakery (which I adore!) and delicious vegan falafels on Rue des Rosiers...
