Bonjour from Paris!

Checking in with a 'halfway point' photo update of what we have been up to. London and Paris have been such incredible experiences- both so different, but so fantastic in their own ways. Here are a few of my favorite memories thus far:

After a 10 hour flight, getting out to beat the jet lag with a warm glass of mulled cider in a pub. Every trip should start off this way...

Heading out to walk down the Thames as the sun rose behind Westminster Abbey and Big Ben. Wow- that's all I can say! And yes, we were even lucky enough to have a gorgeous, sunny (albeit cold) day during our stay in London.

Dinner at the quaint and oh so personal Library Restaurant at the Rubens Hotel (next door to our most fabulous hotel, the Hotel 41. If you are headed to London, I cannot recommend this hotel enough!!)

Stumbling across the only Bridal shop in the old town of Salisbury, where we happened to be stopping for lunch at a pub after visiting the Cathedral

Wandering around Stonehenge. Such an eerie feeling being somewhere so ancient, shrouded in so much mystery

Seeing the Queen make her way out of Buckingham Palace while waiting around for the Changing of the Guard. It happened in the flash of an eye, and we were so excited when we just happened to be paying attention in the right direction!

REAL fish and chips at Seashell's

The Arc de Triomphe all lit up our first night out and about near our hotel in Paris

The Eiffel Tower at night, after a walk down the bustling Champs-Elysees

Catching choir practice at Saint-Germain-des-Pres. I swear there were angels hovering above us as they sang....

And of course, Notre Dame- all lit up just for us!
