24 hours in paris.

wes and i just returned from our late honeymoon to europe where we spent 16 days traveling to paris, the amalfi coast in italy, and barcelona. because we only had 2 weeks and wanted to cover as much ground as possible, paris was just a quick stop. it was much more affordable to buy a round trip ticket into a large hub such as paris, rather than trying to buy a ticket from here to one country and leaving from another, so paris it was!

as a girl who has a insane love for food, fashion and champagne, visiting this romantic city was on the top of my bucket list. so even though i was a complete zombie after getting off the 10 hour flight and not having slept at all {i was far too excited to sleep} i took advantage of all that was parisian in the short amount of time we had there.

we stayed in the st. germain district which is about a 30 minute walk to the eiffel tower along the river and where most of the restaurant/shops are. our first stop was to a great little cafe right around the corner from our hotel called "le bonaparte" where ate croque madame and sipped on espresso. then, there was of course a pit stop for authentic french macaroons, the eiffel tower at sunset, and a magnificent dinner at a quaint little italian restaurant {go figure} that may have been the best meal i had all trip.

{croque madame-i have already made this once since we've been home because i kept craving it}

{the best macaroons i've ever tasted-black cherry, pistachio and chocolate}

{i still dream of this pasta-it was that good}





all in all, it was the perfect 24 hours in paris. and don't let the rumors fool you, the french were actually very lovely and personable! i will definitley make it back there someday as there is so much more to explore.

xo.
