Tea Time

Stopped for tea today at L'Heure Gourmande
22, Passage Dauphine, Paris

Tucked away from the crowds and easy to miss.  We were the first ones to arrive for lunch.  
We prefer to eat before or after the rush, it is so much more realxing.
  It was a bit chilly when we arrived, but once the sun came out we moved 
outside for dessert and café.

Did you schedule something fun this weekend?

Won't You Join me?

A corner of the Musée du Louvre overlooking the River Seine, Paris

The weather has been sunny and gorgeous for the past 5 weeks. 
We had some much needed rain, today the sunshine slowly made an appearance today.

It is time to unglue myself from the computer and 
prendre une marche (take a walk)!

Won't you join me?  Of course, we'll have to stop to refuel...there is a delicious patisserie
along the way...actually there are several patisseries along the way...

Bringing Pretty Back & A Radio Spot

Kristin wants to bring pretty back. 
Her blog is appropriately titled, Bringing Pretty Back

Kristin came to the conclusion that she had lost her 'pretty' along the way, and
neeed more 'pretty' in her life! 

She is in the process of designing a new line of nail polish in pretty colors of course.  

Kristin also host a radio talk show on Blog Talk Radio, and has been kind enough (and very brave I might add) to ask me to come online this Thursday to talk a little about 
my life in Paris and Belle Inspiration Magazine.

If you want to tune in the time is Thursday, June 2nd; 
7 p.m. US Eastern time.  
You can also download all Kristin's past show. 

You'll find the link HERE

Wish me luck...
