Wednesday Wishes - Seine Stroll


Happy mid week, lovelies! Hope you're all having a splendid week. It's that day of the week again that I share some of my wishes with you.

Today I'm in a bit of a French mood. It must be all the Laudurees I've been indulging in lately :) It's strange because even though I'm headed to a tropical vacation this weekend I can't stop fantasizing about taking long leisurely walks along the Seine. I remember many many years ago the first time I went to Paris I walked all the way from Le Marais to the Eiffel Tower the first day I arrived. It was so overwhelming I couldn't stop walking and taking it all in. The sheer beauty of the city...the lights, the gardens, the architecture and sculptures and the ambiance. Still to this day I don't think I've ever been to a more romantic city and I often find my mind wandering back to that magical place. Paris vous aurez toujours mon coeur!

What are you all wishing for this Wednesday?

I adore Paris, it's my favourite city! Just recently I thinking about Pont Alexandre III, it's got to be the most beautiful bridge in the whole world!

Oh, I so know what you mean. I think I did the same looong walk - passed Notre Dame and all the beautiful house boats. Haven't been to Paris this year (yet), but perhaps in autumn. Just imagine sitting in one of the beautiful cafés now... xxx

You are so right ma cherie, j'adore Paris! If I could live in any foreign city in the world, it would most certainly be Paris! I live in Troyes when I was 18 for 6 months, but it's not the same. I think I was French in a pst life, I love everything French so much!

Ofocurse you are more than welcome to any rooftop soiree chez moi! I am planing another formal sit down soon, would love to see you! :)

Thanks for taking us along for a stroll. I absolutely agree with your thoughts about Paris and can't wait to return. I am really looking forward to a few nights in the city beginning to tomorrow. It is a sort of reward of sorts and I am so very much looking forward to it. Have a lovely Wednesday!

My husband literally just came into my room and said "check the flights to France" I know it will probably never happen, but maybe I will find a great last min deal!!
