everyone needs a break from nyc


Soon, really soon, I'll be visiting my friend Jordan Ferney in Paris, France. I can't wait. Above is a picture her husband Paul took (click here for all of her Paris blog posts). They live 100 ft from the Eiffel Tower. Here's the email I sent her in regards to the things I want to see/do:


1. eat chocolate/bread/pastries/cheese/moose/wine?
2. walk/run. my preferred mode of transportation. 
3. it would be fun to find an Easter dress for Ella and Easter outfits for the boys. I want to buy new french style backpacks for the kids. 
4. Eiffel tower
5. flea market

6. musée d'Orsay or Louvre
7. centre georges pompidou
8. notre-dame cathédrale or any church's/cathedrals you think are cool


Most of all i want to get the slow version of Paris. I don't have to make it past #5 on my list. If all i did was walk around, see pretty things, and eat good food I would be happy. i'll go back someday when the kids are in high school and see all the major tourist attractions. and again when i'm old with a tour group. (end of email)
I'm totally excited.

  2. Wow. I am so jealous. BTW, is Musee d'Orsay closed for renovation? I thought it was, because de Young had their stuff here (Impressionist etc) and I thought that was the only reason the de Young actually got that exhibit.

    Anyway, have a blast! Eat lots and lots.
