The Eiffel Tower Has A Suprise For ME!!!

We arrived in the afternoon and after getting acclimated to our beautiful Paris Perfect apartment we decided to take a walk.

My very first walk in Paris!!!!! The charming cobble stoned streets were lined with beautiful little shops.

I love the way the shops seem to specialize in specific items.

The butcher shop, the boulangier for artisan breads and special pastries, wine, cheese, flowers Oh my!!! I could go on and on.

We walked about five blocks to go to the street called……

Paris 9-10-12 002

Can you believe their street signs? Even their street signs are done with an artistic flair.

We stopped at a small café on a corner to have lunch. It actually turned out to be enough food to call it our dinner.

We strolled back to our apartment,  and along the way we stopped by a small Patisserie to pick up some delicious pastries for our dessert, and coffee.

We took our goodies to the apartment where we visited and looked out our terrace at the magnificence of the Eiffel Tower.

You can see how it looks as the evening progressed.
The Eiffel tower had a surprise for me,  I think it was just happy to see me!!……..

You might be wondering where I am headed. I am on my way to the San Francisco airport to take an eleven hour flight where will be arriving ………


Remember all of my wardrobe planning for the Fall? Well, part of that was for this wonderful trip.
