PARIS: Golden Pretties

What was my favorite thing about Paris?

Seriously.... how can I articulate how wonderful the trip was, how beautiful the city is --- yet alone --- decide what is my "favorite thing about Paris"?!

Let me start off by sharing with you what we accomplished in a mere 4 days.

To start, we went to a wedding!
The whole reason why we traveled was to attend a wedding. A GORGEOUS wedding.
Filled with REAL love. 
Let me just say, their wedding vows: AUTHENTIC and POWERFUL.

LOVED it!

That aside, we had 3 days left. 
Our home base was located in Place Vendome. From there we went off and we...

Walked the Jardin des Tuileries
Place de la Concorde
Assemblee Nationale
Cheered on runners in a 20k run
Eiffel Tower
Grand Palais
Place Charles de Gaulle
Arc de Triomphe
Champs Elysees
Place de la Madeleine [attended a service where my hubby read the English portion of the Universal Prayer]
Place du Carrousel
Musee de Louvre 
Notre Dame
Sainte Chapelle
Conciergerie Palais de Justice
Riverboat Cruise on the Seine River 
Medaille Miraculeuse [attended another service]
Musee Rodin
Musee D'Orsay
Place de Vendome

We walked the ENTIRE time.
Except for a taxi to the wedding and farthest destinations to begin 2 of our days [Notre Dame and Medaille Miraculeuse].

Along the way we stopped in quaint cafes and restaurants for breakfast, snacks [aka cheese and wine], and dinner.

I LOVED EVERYTHING about our trip. I can't say what I liked the most.
But, the GOLDEN PRETTIES found EVERYWHERE is a definite love!
