THE OFF SEASON: 36hrs in paris

PARIS_36With only a couple days to spare, I was determined to make it to Paris one last time before turning 30 [in July].  I don’t know why or how that seed burrowed itself into my brain, but I just needed to do it.  So, to make my pre-bday wish come true, I tacked a little Parisian rendezvous onto the end of London.

PARIS_39After forcing Melody to board a 3-ish hr train at an annoyingly early hour, we were finally in the city of love.  Upon arrival, we headed straight to our hotel [too early for check-in], dropped off our bags, and began our adventure by standing in awe starring at the beautifully tall stained glass windows of  what felt like a giant Faberge egg; Sainte-Chappelle.  From hotel lobby to a rainy day wander to a lazy Sunday, I share with you a photo journal of our 36hrs in Paris.
