Jardin de Luxembourg : Kids Paradise!

We brought Bébé Chéri recently to the Luxembourg Garden for a day of kids fun and frolicking that was absolutely fantastic! For 4€ we had 30 minutes of stick weilding fun as our three-year-old brandished his boat stick with excitement and we raced after him trying to keep other garden-goers from losing an eye. Great fun indeed! Les Voiliers du… Read more →

If you listen closely in the beginning of Springtime in Paris, you can almost hear a collective sigh.. Aaaaaaaaahhhh! The light comes back and we all… Read more →

Fall Colors in Paris – Les Batignolles

Chéri and I took some time on a Sunday in early November to just have a lovely lazy stroll around the park down the street from us (two actually), the new Martin Luther King park and the Square des Batignolles. It was somewhat of a Fall Colors stroll, since that is what we did in New England where I grew… Read more →
