Paris, in lieu of Cupcake Monday (coming later!)
Sunday was our first full day in Paris after arriving late Saturday (and gorging on crepes for both dinner and dessert - savory + sweet = regret sometimes). Now, I was aware it was Sunday, and that Monday tends to follow, but my responsibilities around Cupcake Monday completely eluded me. Somehow, in the 403 photos I've taken so far, none of them are of cupcakes, pastries, macarons or food of any kind. I had great food today but it was not photogenic. In fact, it would have looked gross had I shown you and you would have asked why I was doing that to you. Cream sauces. However, I did see some great Easter windows at the many chocolatiers on St-Germain where we're staying, but I have a habit of being either in observer/photographer mode or shopping mode, the latter of which I was doing as the Easter Bunny, and I really have to try to merge those modes. (Admittedly I have one of those brains where a new thought pushes out an old one.)
So for now, here are photos from my day, and I promise I will bring you the sweet, pretty things later today and throughout the week because as sure as Sarkozy is horny I will eat a lot of them.
This is the view taken our first night from our hotel balcony, you can see Notre Dame and the Centre Pompidou:
