How are you? How is your October?

So you may know that Hubby and I went to Paris this month for our anniversary! Yay!

I’ve always wanted to go and I’ll be honest-

It totally lived up to the expectations!

We toured around Paris and the last couple of days were joined by my lovely sister in law Fiona and her boyfriend Jamie. It was all lots of fun.

Here are some pictures in case you want to get into the Paris spirit- and see where I was reading last week!

 

 

Of course I found French bookstores!

Went to Angelina, at the Louvre. Enjoying hot chocolate the old fashioned way- a thick, drinkable chocolate with heavy cream. 
Best. Thing. Ever.

Hubby went for a run because he is training for (another!) marathon. No problem with me!
Reading in an outdoor cafe with a glass of wine, watching the rain fall.

Enjoyed Pere Lachaise Cemetary where I visited Oscar Wilde, Edith Pilaf, Chopin, Bizet, Marcel Proust and Jim Morrison 
The second picture is of Oscar Wilde’s grave

Found a beautiful little fabric store in the Marais district. I am not a very good sewer but I love fabric and had to go in!

Visited Shakespeare & Co.
I wasn’t allowed to take pictures inside, but let me tell you it is a beautiful bookshop with all English books.
Lovely
