While my parents were visiting, Derek and I snuck off to Paris for a weekend alone. It was dreamy, festive and wonderful, and all those clichés. The weather was perfection — sunny and even a bit warm, there’s no way you might have guessed it was less than a week before Christmas. We walked and walked, went in many shops that we would have driven the children mad, stayed out late, ate dinner at a fantastic restaurant, watched the sunrise, wandered through beautiful parisienne shopping passages, went back to the d’Orsay, visited Versailles, sipped vin chaud at the eiffel tower, rented vélib bikes, and enjoyed an all-around fantastic weekend. And of course, as all parents do when they’re away from their children for any length of time, we talked about the kids! Here is a glimpse of our weekend in photographs.
Au revoir, Paris. À la prochaine fois.
