I hope you’ll forgive me. As I sit to write today’s post I realize that I have nothing profound to say. No tips, no tricks, no exciting new finds or techniques to share. I, like many of you I’m sure, am rather swamped under the holiday preparations. It’s been all buying, wrapping, mailing and baking around here. So much so that my trip to Paris seems a distant memory, although it was only a few weeks ago. Today (most days, really) I would very much like to return to Paris, if only for a little while and, if you’ll indulge me, I’d like to bring you along. Maybe it will be just the little break from reality that we both need.

I’m fortunate to have spent a good deal of time in Paris but this time was extra special because I got to introduce my favourite girl to my favourite city. I got to share all the things that make Paris so special (to me).

Like the pastries.

Travelling by Metro



The park life


This lovely view from the loo


Far-off glimpses of the Eiffel Tower that make my heart leap


And when the City of Light really shows off


I hope you’ve enjoyed this little tour of Paris through my lens, and that it perhaps transported you, if only momentarily, away from the hustle and bustle of your day to this wonderful city.


I’d like to say un gros Merci to all of you, the Mortal Muses community for being such a source of beauty and inspiration. I wish you all the best this holiday season.

As Holly announced yesterday each of the Muses will be hosting a Holiday Giveaway. I’m pleased to be offering a gift certificate for Blurb. As I’ve said I’m a big fan of making photo books and Blurb helps you to make some great ones. Leave a comment below for a chance to win. Kirstin will announce the winners on December 29th.
Good luck and Happy Holidays!
