So maybe it wasn’t quite 100 hours in Paris, but I did spend nearly 100 hours kid-free on the whole journey from the time I left the airport to the time my sweet boys all picked me up. So what does a stay at home mom set free into the big big world with her best friend do for 100 glorious hours? Highlights included arriving in Paris on the day of a ginormous music festival, finding macarons and yummy desserts at Pierre Herme, Laduree and Aoki, shopping sans enfants, chatting with S while her lovely husband R popped open champagne on their rooftop, yummy meals at the Rose Bakery and Chez prune, beautiful coffee art at Telescope coffee, curious pastries at Masmoudi and walking miles around Paris to see EVERYTHING! (We were there together in 2008 when I was pregnant and so we didn’t need to revisit the Louvre and some other more touristy sites. We did visit a museum neither of us had been to before: The Musee Jacquemart-Andre, thanks to the book I read on the plane: Paris in Love and found it odd and exquisite at the same time.) Oh, and I completed a dream bucket list item: I bought a book at Shakespeare and Company and wished I could have spent a whole day in that book store. I seriously felt like the luckiest girl in the world for a few precious days and I’m thankful for my sweet hosts. (The good pictures below are also theirs.)
(PS. S can you please please please post your tomato tart recipe? Honestly one of the yummiest things we ate.)
