Happy Monday friends! I hope you all had a nice Easter weekend! Ours was great – a very full two days. Get togethers with friends both Friday and Saturday night, gymnastics for the kids, Kole’s birthday party, church on Sunday and a nice long walk with my husband. Now it’s suddenly Monday morning and I just got the kids off to school. I’m sitting in a very quiet, messy house. It’s cloudy and cool outside which feels so cozy and refreshing. I have a lot to do, but I’m just sitting on my couch for the moment looking out the windows and enjoying the silence. It doesn’t come around here often. :)
Two quick things I wanted to share with you. First, thank you for your feedback on my drapes in my Friday favorites/fashion post! You all said different things so I can’t say it helped me narrow down my decision.. ha! But I loved hearing your thoughts. I’ve also heard from so many of you that you bought the striped dress! I hope you all love it like I do. :)
Now I have a quick question for any of you who can help me. My husband and I are planning a trip in April that I am really excited about. We are going to Paris! JUST THE TWO OF US. It has been years since we have taken a trip together. Aside from two quick weekend trips for my husband’s work, it has actually been about nine years to be exact since we left the kids with grandparents and enjoyed a week alone. We only have six days so we decided to just go to one place and really soak in all we could. We are planning our itinerary and I’d love to hear from those of you who have been to Paris what you would recommend we see and do! Of course the obvious tourists destinations – Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, etc. and we are going to take a day trip to Normandy. But any other recommendations on things we might be missing? Or tips on things to do/not do.. what to pack, places we need to eat? Would love to hear your thoughts!
Soon after we chose Paris as our destination for this sacred adult only trip I came home and said “I bought something for our trip!” My husband said “I did too!” He pulled out Paris for Dummies so we could read everything possible about the city and plan accordingly. I pulled out this darling coral and mint green Paris art print I found at Pottery Barn to hang in our house somewhere. We were laughing. So typical us. :)
Thanks for any suggestions in advance! Now off to tackle my messy house so I can function the rest of the week (if my house is cluttered, my mind is cluttered!). I’ve procrastinated long enough. :) Enjoy your Monday friends!
