Paris | Always a Good Idea

 A few weeks back, my husband just said…how about we got to Paris? My answer…why yes {remembering the words by her gorgeousness Audrey Hepburn}. I mean duh! If you’re new here, I’m actually newly married {I think a year is fairly new}. Me and the hubs haven’t traveled much together and I didn’t think he would fall in love with Italy last year {our honeymoon} but now he wanted to buy an apartment in Venice. Not sure about that, I mean I love the idea but it’s not like we’ve got lots of cash stashed somewhere. He thought I won’t wanna go since I’ve been to Paris before, but from experience, you look at a destination with different eyes when you are with the one you love. Ahem, corny, I know but he does read my posts. 🙂
So, even though I drink a cafe au lait everyday here in the US, I must remember to rather use the terms “Cafe Creme” there. Or not ask for an espresso cup, but a “demitasse.” And order strictly an espresso or simply “cafe” after 10 am. Hard lessons, when you don’t order right in these countries, you might get a weird look.
Anyway, since I’ve been dreaming of French Cafes & Bistros, I hope you don’t mind me sharing the new stuff at the shop

And of course, cafes are better with some sweets in these compotes.

We haven’t booked the trip. Budget is going to be tight but maybe I can stash some baguettes for sustenace.

About Maureen

Details are my passion. From curating vignettes to designing spaces. I thrive in finding the finds and just discovered the art of collecting...all while sipping on a cafe au lait & a french macaroon in hand.

  1. I think the claim the state can own anything is bhluslit because the state does not exist. Just like corporations don’t exist. They don’t have rights like flesh-and-blood human beings.Marc Stevens, JT and others have asked the question in court to the prosecutor, is there evidence of a complaining party? and either had the charges withdrawn or gotten loads of non-responsive answers.
