Paris, Part 1.

Blake and I escaped to Paris this week - a trip we've wanted to take for some time now. In our daily lives, we spend a lot of time prioritizing Hugo, our careers, other responsibilities that keep us healthy, contributive and relatively sane :) But we have always, always stressed the importance of investing in our relationship - travel has been one of the ways that we do that. Adventuring together is one of our truest joys.

And Paris. Paris was magical. 

More to come, but from the first 48 hours: 
a train ride from the airport to Saint Germain, where we stayed here. long wanders through the 4th, 5th and 6th arrondissements (we walked 47 miles in total over 4 days!). a stop for cappuccino at Cafe de Flore. Notre-Dame, in all of its glory. the Pantheon, from top (an amazing view) to bottom (the resting place of Victor Hugo). multiple stops at Maison Kayser for macarons, croissants. dinner at La Jacobine. a drink at Le Berthoud. Musee de l'Orangerie to see Monet's Water Lilies. The Tuileries and Luxembourg Gardens. and very little sleep, on the whole.
