Brocante Treasures Back in France

Here are a few more of the photos I took while in Paris. Mont Valerian with the American Cemetery in the background.DSC_0026

From the park in Mont Valerian you can see this view of La Defense. I love the old buildings in the foreground with the super modern buildings in the background. This is so representative of life in France.DSC_0024

Another view from Mont Valerian, it was a beautiful day to enjoy these amazing views.DSC_0022

Montmartre, the Sacre Coeur and the beautiful flowers of summer time in Paris. DSC_0071

I woke up at 5:15 one morning so I could trek here, Sacre Coeur. The sun rose and the pink glow was stunning. There were not many people around that early in the morning and I loved having the area to myself. DSC_0076

This photo was taken from Montmartre facing north, away from Paris. DSC_0098

So. Many. Stairs. That day I made it my job to climb as many stairs as possible.

Next stop was Notre Dame. The sun was still on its way up and I was rewarded with greeting the city as she woke up.

I was able to walk right in the church with no line and listen to a beautiful mass. IMG_2532

Then an expat friend joined me for a climb up to the top of Notre Dame. It was great to have a friend encourage me up the 380 stairs and the views were totally worth it. DSC_0143

No hunch back sitings here with the bell.

The views were so rewarding.DSC_0135

You can see one of the famous gargoyles with Les Invalides and the Eiffel Tower.DSC_0139

Au Petit Bonheur la Chance is a wonderful little store on Rue Saint Paul. Unfortunately the day I went most of the stores were closed, they take their weekend on Tuesday and Wednesday. This little shop was open and they have so many wonderful collections.DSC_0153

You can follow them on instagram and see their treasures for yourself.DSC_0154

Walking through the Tuileries to visit the Louvre.

Paris is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been, and it was just as beautiful as I remembered. I know the world is a scary place right now, but I hope that I am never too afraid to explore.
