Paris: Picture Overload

So it has been quite the ordeal trying to find the best pictures to share. Derek and I just loved Paris and had such a blast. We only spent a couple quick days there but are so glad we had the opportunity to go.

For those of you who don't know, I've been waiting a long time to go to Paris. I have been dreaming about seeing all the things I had heard about from my parents, siblings, and french teachers for many years. Dream come true. Thanks for giving me an awesome job.

My whole entire family and Derek's entire family have all been to Europe. Derek and I were the last ones left to take a trip overseas and loved every minute of it.

Here are some highlights:

Feeling pretty exhausted at the CDG Airport
Our first sneak peak at the Eiffel Tower.
The view from our window where we were staying
We thoroughly enjoyed Musee du Louvre
Derek LOVES to study

The view on our way to Champs Elysees
Everything was breathtaking
We love water
There was the bets local bakery. This croissant was so good.
On our way up all the stairs to Sacre Couer

The walk to Sacre Couer was my favorite

My favorite spot in Paris. The view was fabulous. I never wanted to leave
Lunch on our way down all those stairs

It was more beautiful than i thought it could be
The rose window at Notre Dame. There was a sermon going on when we visited!
Arc de Triomphe
Laduree. The best.
Thanks Martha for leading me to the best Hot Chocolate ever
We just couldn't resist them
So excited to drink this stuff!
Another view from our window

Now of course this doesn't include everything that I wanted to share but it does give you a little taste in to all the great things we got to see and do while in Paris. Our couple of days were booked but it was so worth it. 

Goodbye Paris! We are off to London!


  1. LOVE this! (jealous) I'm so glad you were able to enjoy it. I was afraid would take up all your time. Can't wait for some London pictures!

  2. These pictures brought back so many memories! I'm glad you guys got to go to Europe together. How romantic. ;) Hopefully we'll hang out soon!

  3. How fun! I'm pretty jealous! And, don't worry, you beat me to Europe. Scott assures me that he'll take me by the time we've been married for 20 years... I told him he better hope I stick around that long:) Just a joke!

  4. I love all of the pictures... definitely not an overload! :) And I'm also jealous... looks like you guys are having a blast!
