Last Days in Paris

 I am just now getting around to uploading photos from the last two days of my European Adventures {due to the fact that I literally took so many pictures I filled up my hard drive}.  Fast forward two weeks and one external hard drive later, and I am now reliving my last two days in Paris, holding back the tears because I miss it so much already!

My plane back to the United States was leaving out of Paris the Tuesday before Thanksgiving, so I decided to leave London on Sunday and spend two more days in my favorite city.  I stayed in an adorable little boutique hotel in Saint Germain and filled my hours wandering around the quiet little streets getting lost camera in hand {plus a stop at the Christmas Market on the Champs Elysees}.  I was most certainly sad to leave, but I was ready to come home and spend the holidays with my friends, family, and Ryan {who picked me up at the airport with a bouquet of roses in hand}.

Photos from last two days in the City of Light are below:
 {The Christmas Market on the Champs Elysees including a frightening stall filled with little gingerbread men who looked like they were being hung}
 {The view from my hotel room's window}


{The gorgeous neighborhood of Saint Germain des Pres}
 {81 "Rue de Loo" - the home of Julia and Paul Child during their years in Paris.  It was especially fun being able to see this as I actually read Julia Child's biography ("My Life in France") while I was in Paris.}
 {Such a perfect sky}
