The Wonderful City of Lights...

I'm back from beautiful Paris and it has
exceeded all of my expectations and then some!
I had a really wonderful time, despite the really frigid temperatures. As we came in to the city for the first time it snowed! So I actually got to see two things I never get to see all at once. I managed to take 500 pictures, don't worry I will not be posting them all, but it will take me two or three posts to show you the best pictures I captured of this fantastic place and this incredible experience.
The beautiful Eiffel at night.


I was FREEZING!!!! But it was worth it.


 One of my favorite stops, the one and only Notre Dame Cathedral...



The entrance to the Cathedral was so big...I took a picture of my little niece in front of the entrance to show the grand scale of this exquisite masterpiece.

Inside the cathedral.





Come visit me on my next post, I will be posting more pictures of the Eiffel Tower, the Arc De Triumph, some of the great food we enjoyed, and some incredible flea market finds I scored on my last day in the city...and I want to share a special find for my vintage postcard blogger friends!

Cold weather or not, that looks like fun! I hear that Paris is getting snow right now. I wonder if it's sticking. Did you have any when you were there?

I found you through Christine H.'s The Daily Postcard.

I can't wait to see your pictures! I lived in Paris for three years and do miss it so much. so much so that for a long time I wouldn't even read about it because of "homesickness".
