Life Love Lens | Paris

Happy March! Fingers crossed that Spring is right around the corner.

Today’s post is part of our monthly blog circle, so please be sure to check out Rachel’s blog once you’re done here. You won’t regret it. Today actually marks the TWELFTH edition of my blog circle posts. Can you believe it?! I’m so incredibly proud of myself for sticking with this for an entire year. If you want to go back and look at all of my previous posts, you can do so here.

Now.. on to the fun stuff! Last month, Damon and I were lucky enough to spend a few days in Paris, so naturally, that is what today’s post is about. I apologize in advance for the length.. I just couldn’t cut any out!

First stop…. the Eiffel Tower! I couldn’t believe how *huge* it was in real life.

 

We spent a lot of time wandering through the pâtisseries, we just couldn’t get enough sweets. Believe it or not, that image on the right was from a McDonald’s McCafe!! I wish ours looked like that!

 

The Orsay Museum was incredible. I could’ve spent days in there looking at the work of Monet and Cross. Unfortunately, you aren’t allowed to take any pictures inside the museum {we actually listened} so we only had these from the exterior.

 

There are so many pretty things to look at when you are just wandering the streets…

 

The Arc de Triomphe was another incredible monument. The sculptures are on the front were probably 30 feet in the air,  50 feet tall and so detailed. I do recommend climbing to the top, the view is unreal from up there.

 

I think nutella crêpes might have been our favorite food item, but it’s hard to say.

 

The Louvre was so cool to see in person, and it was so much larger than I expected. You could spend a ton of time here if you really wanted. We stopped by the Mona Lisa and then wandered around for awhile checking out Greek sculptures and 18th century paintings.

 

We had to stop by and see the Love Lock Bridge, and it was so. cool. You’re not really supposed to add any more locks to the bridge, they have a lot of it boarded up… but we  found a spot for ours!

 

These were taken in a little cafe we stopped at for lunch, I had the most amazing croque madame and hot chocolate. Damon is, of course, enjoying another espresso.

 

The Notre Dame Cathedral was a must-see on our list, and I’m so glad we made it here! There are no pictures that could do this building justice. The detailed ceiling and stained glass windows were absolutely breathtaking.

 

We brought our GoPro along on this trip, so feel free to watch the video. I also have some of our phone pictures below too!

Despite the cold and rainy weather, it was an amazing trip. I loved being able to see some of the history and culture of Paris. Until next time…. au revoir!

    Laura- These photos are absolutely stunning! I traveled to Paris way back when I was in college, and I visited many of the same attractions. Your photos really took me back. You are so great at travel photography! Absolutely beautiful work!ReplyCancel

    J’adore!!!! I think I have stared at these pictures for 20 minutes. I went to Paris when I was 15 with my crazy high school teacher who had a nervous meltdown and locked herself in her hotel room. So my experience being young and wandering the streets of Paris with my friends feels like an ancient dream but i can still taste the butter and smell that city. I get annoyed when people tell me they don’t enjoy Paris because I found it magical. Your pictures do it justice, so freaking beautiful! Please keep traveling so that I can live vicariously!!!! Love the shot of the man making crepes, great perspective on the Arc de Triomphe and that night shot of the Eiffel Tower is awesome! I will watch the go pro video when I don’t have a 3 year old crawling on me 😉ReplyCancel
