If you know where that song lyric is from we are friends.
We were only in Paris for a day, but it felt like a year. The smells, the people, the heels, the noises, the men! I'll stop. But I was ready to move and never look back. The cola was so fresh. The Eiffel Tower is so damn cool. I didn't go into the Louvre but I will when I go back.
For lunch we stopped at a really cute spot, called Cafe di Roma, ate outside, and had plenty of coloring paper for the kids.
I ordered a salad, this salad was so good. I wanted three more. It was so healthy and filling at the same time. I never had a salad where I ended up that happy.
I fell in love with how everyone was dressed. The women and their heels... what I've been saying all along I've finally saw it for myself. It felt right being in Paris.
I bought coffee in front of the Norte Dame, that was the best coffee EVER. Call me biased for being in France, but it was amazing. All of the bridges have stairways down to the water, it was cool to people watch in Paris. It doesn't feel like New York. It's a better feeling.
Photos of The Eiffel Tower do not do it justice. You must go and see it for yourself. I wasn't able to see it sparkle at night due to the stricking events but being able to sit on the grass, and to see my future on this side of the world was sparkling enough.
I really appreciated that most of the food carts, and restaurants had gluten free options readily available, and no one made a face or judged when I said I couldn't have a certain food. I felt welcomed everywhere we went.
Our time was short in Paris, I really could have spent an entire week there, c'est La vie. I saw a few Instagram post recently that mentioned Paris being a dead city to party and have fun.... I beg to differ. This is the ultimate 30 and up city. Drinking wine at noon, and lounging by a bridge with bread and more wine, is the ultimate party. Plus! Everyone wore heels.
