Happy Summer! With summer travels in full swing and the itinerary planned, I thought that I would give you a glimpse into my summer. So far, I have spent the first month and a half in Sun Valley, ID (more content coming when I return :)) which I have been so grateful for.
Although, right now I am in Paris, France -- the first leg of our five-week European trip. For the next couple of weeks in Paris, I will be taking you along on all of our adventures. Whether it be the restaurants and shops that we frequent or the outfits I am sporting, it will be a fun ride for us both.
The first day overseas is always a challenge. Whether it's coordinating the plane, trains, ubers,etc., adjusting to the time-zone, or getting acquainted with your new setting, this can be a feat in itself but more importantly, bring many fun opportunities to explore.
Arriving in Paris around 2 in the afternoon last week, we were determined to power through the exhaustion of traveling and the 8 hour time change. After settling into our apartment, we stayed busy by walking around the 7th and 8th arrondissements searching for our favorite fruit stands, bakeries, fromageries, wine shops, and many more, determined to pound the pavement until bed.
In a means of fill our darling kitchen with some essentials, we visited many shops and thoroughly explored our little slice of Paris. Later that evening we made our way down the street to a small Italian restaurant called Chez Pippo.
Snagging the perfect spot for people watching and admiring the French culture, we enjoyed fresh bread, pizzas, gnocchi, and a yummy Caprese salad.
It was the perfect first day in Paris and I can't wait to share more -- stay tuned!
