And my friends, visualization is, in fact, the key to success. After a year of wishing, dreaming, hoping, and planning…it’s really happening. One week from today Mike and I will be jetting off to the city of lights, the place of my dreams: PARIS, France!!!
I can’t wait to stroll the tiny, winding streets in search of the perfect croissant. Search for the best macarons, hot chocolate, and madeleines. Watch the Eiffel Tower sparkle at dusk. Get up early and see the sun rise over the city. Take thousands of photos. Use the one French phrase I have mastered: Je voudrais une crêpe Nutella. Go to mass at Notre Dame. Get lost wandering around the Marais. Ponder the meaning of life over a bottle (or two) of red wine. Eat. Eat. Take photos. Eat.
So, what can’t we miss?? Obviously our trip is planned mostly around food (macarons. madeleines. marshmallows. cheese. wine. baguettes. shall I go on?) with lots of wandering and a couple touristy stops. If you have any suggestions/ thoughts, leave me a comment! The Sweet Life will be on a temporary hiatus while I’m gone, but I plan to have MAJ trip recap posts when we return!!
What is your favorite thing about Paris? Where should we go? What else should we eat??
