Adventures in Paris

Paris might be freezing and gray but it’s still beautiful.  I’ve been on quite a few adventures since moving here and when I’m not studying my days are filled with new activities.    Earlier this month I visited one of my favorite museums, the Musée d’Orsay with all the amazing impressionist and post-impressionist paintings.  I have gone on long walks around the city, stopping for a cup of chocolat chaud and some much needed warmth.  I attended a gala in a silk LBD that I just happened to bring along, and I have visited some classic Parisian cafés for some good old French comfort food.  Here are some pics of everything I’ve been up to.  I can’t wait for warmer weather and more adventures!

Printemps.  Why don’t department store ceilings look like this in the US?

Chocolat Chaud.  I love that it comes unsweetened and you add sugar!

  1. Your pictures are beautiful.. truly inspirational.. I’ve had thoughts recently to move to Paris short term to attend Le Cordon Bleu.. after reading about you on the everygirl – I now feel like I should definitely do it.. thank you for the inspiration!!

  2. I have enjoyed reading your story so far. In the last 8 months move to Chicago to attend Le Cordon Bleu. I love the school and the city but I would love to move to France persue my culinary after I’m done with school. Your story reminds of myself and my goals. Thanks and Keep it up!!!!

  3. I’ve travelled to Paris, twice with my husband in 2008 and then in 2012 – firstly time was with a group and second time just the two of us. I’m obsessed for sure! Although I’m no spring chicken, I fantasize about having a parisienne apartment with herringbone floors, and tons of windows! Not too many stairs, though! lol
    Love your blog by the way!
