A quick little note to let you all know that I'm back from Paris!
And the first thing I thought the first morning I woke up at home - was how much I missed my Parisian mornings. With croissants and butter. With the morning views of Sacre Coeur outside of our apartment's windows. With the anticipation of 'what will I explore today?'.
Our Montmartre, Paris apartment was such a delight - thank you Haven in Paris for making our stay even better than we ever could've dreamed!

{see that big yellow circle? that's our Montmartre penthouse apartment!}

{Karen and I - our first visit to the Eiffel Tower - it was a very gray day!}

I'll be back with lots more from my Parisian trek. I'm still settling back into "real life" - which equates to lots of Gracie pup snuggles & being in a serious Boulangerie (bakery cafe) withdrawal.
I've surrounded myself with my Parisian purchases (gifts to myself & to others) so I can see/touch them and transport myself back to Paris at any given moment.

I have tons of Polaroids to scan and some Holga rolls to develop, too. Can't wait to see how the films turn out!

Chat with you soon, mes ami!
with dreaming-of-croissants joy,


  1. So glad you are home! Can't wait to see you!

  2. Welcome home!
    What a spectacular view you had from your apartment! Can't wait to see more of your pics from that fabulous city. :)

  3. ahhh, I can almost smell it all again.. especially the cafes, and butter! ;o) Welcome home sweets. Though I know that 'come down' feeling of tucking in your wanderlust feathers and settling back in to the familiar nest. Glad you got a swank place to say (so much better than the hostel I was at in Paris..eeyuk!).
    Hope to see you again soon.. xo

  4. Welcome home! It's always a strange mix of happy home coming (especially all the furry snuggles) and a bit of a lost/sad/where'd-all-the-excitement-and-pastries go feeling post-trip.

    Can't wait to read and see more about your Parisian adventures!

  5. I still miss our Parisian morning too and we went in August last year lol. How cool that you had a penthouse apartment and what a view!

  6. So glad you had a great time! Ah, Paris...
    Looking forward to seeing you this weekend at the chip truck :)
