Yesterday the weather was absolutely amazing in Paris so I had to trade my favourite arm chair inside for one in the Tuileries. It’s impossible to stay inside when the sun is out and it feels like a warm spring day! I spent the whole morning just soaking up as much of the sun as possible while enjoying some Pierre Hermé macarons (caramel and praline noisette). For lunch I met up with Vicky at Le Loir dans la Theiere and then went for a walk around sunny Le Marais. I love strolling around there on a sunny day, the whole area is packed with people wanting to get some of that sun at cosy cafés.
The sun was so warm I was convinced that spring finally had made it to Paris, until I looked at the weather forecast for the coming week… Snow and freezing temperatures are expected in Paris and many other places around Europe. Eeiiik!
During the afternoon I meet up with Edna and we made a stop at Comme à Lisbonne to pick up a few treats to bring along down to the border of the Seine. The wonderful sun + amazing company + yummy treats + the view of Notre Dame + a couple of guitar players playing the intro melody to the movie Midnight in Paris made this afternoon seem totally surreal.
A few hours along the Seine then turned into a dinner at our favourite Italian place with much laughter and tiramisu, which then turned into a lesson in flirting with French bartenders, haha (let’s just say that I have a looong way to go). It was the perfect Saturday in other words!
