Chapter 45. Ten Photos from Paris this Weekend: Version 4

This weekend was an AMAZING time to be in Paris. All of a sudden the weather turned warm and sunny, plus the trees are all exploding into leaf making everything bright and colourful. We spent the bulk of the weekend outside enjoying the sunshine, alongside what felt like the entire city; everyone was out and alive and busy and energetic.

Saturday involved a beautiful morning run, then brunch with some of my favourite ladies in the world, and then some quality time wandering around the city. Sunday was the Paris Marathon, so we went out to cheer on the runners as they passed near our house- it was inspiring to see them all giving their all…I can’t even imagine running that far!

Anyways, please enjoy my ten pictures from this weekend- and for all of you reading from snowy Canada….I’m sorry! If it’s any comfort, the weather is grey and rainy here this morning.

They have sailboats for the kids in one of the fountains at the Jardin du Luxembourg. It’s really cool; they aren’t motorized but the kids use sticks to guide them into the wind, and then chase them to the other side of the fountain. Each boat represented a different country- you can see New Zealand and Portugal in this photo.

Drinks on the terrace at the Odéon-Théâtre de l’Europe. The people watching here was spectacular…I particularly loved the women across from us with the silly doggie!

Paris Marathon passing by Foundation Louis Vuitton. There were 55,000 crazy runners passing by here yesterday! At least they got a beautiful day for it…

Marc and I went to the pet store on Sunday to pick out a new toy for Murphy. It’s now Monday morning and he has managed to tear the head open, pull out most of the stuffing and the squeaker. He is so proud. Sighhhhhhhh.

 

Have a beautiful week everyone!
