30th Birthday Present.

I turn 30 in 2 weeks.  Yikes!  I already know what Justin is getting me for my birthday.  And it's not because I'm super sneaky/nosy and figured it.  (But that would be something I would totally do.)  Instead, this present was one he couldn't really keep from me.

We are going back to Paris for a week! 

When I did my Paris recap shortly after returning from our 2-week Europe trip about a year ago, I said the following: "I seriously loved every single second of Paris. I would go back tomorrow if I could."  Well, it may not have been "tomorrow," but I will take a year instead.



I can't hardly wait.  Our trip won't be as near as rushed this time around.  We are already planning on hitting up some of the places we didn't have time to check out last time, and I've been scouring blogs for some other great tips.  If you have any to share, I'm all ears!

I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that the house renovations go according to plan while we are away!  I like to think I can calm my worries of what's happening back home by drinking copious amounts of wine and champagne and eating lots of French pastries and cheese.

  2. OH so exciting! We just got back from Paris for our anniversary! It was definitely overwhelming/not enough time to do EVERYTHING you want to do, so a trip back is definitely in order!!!!

  3. So Jealous! In my opinion, the best Paris guides are at Ohhappyday and Stephmodo. If you want a photo session while you're there, our photographer Mackenzie (chubbyfoot.com) is over there now!

  5. oh so lovely!! I love exploring new places, but sometimes it is SO nice to go back somewhere you have been and have more of a relaxed / living approach to a trip there. And of course, there are endless things to see, or just places to sit and observe in Paris. ENJOY!! Your buttery pastries, wine, and cheese will make you forget everything at home for the time you are away.

  6. Happy 30th! What a wonderful way to celebrate :)
    As far as renovations happening while you are away, just think of it as an episode of "Extreme Home Makeover".

  12. That's awesome! I really want to go to Paris. I turn 40 in two years so I'm thinking that would be a good gift. Don't you agree?
