Summer in Paris | 2018
As most of you know, I left my office job this past spring so that I could focus on my business 100%! I don’t like to say I went ‘full-time’, because I was definitely already putting in full time hours running this biz. Because I was working two full-time jobs, I missed out on a lot of social activities, and had to put things like vacation on hold. The last trip Jon (my hubby) and I took was our honeymoon in 2013 (yes - five years ago). So it was long overdue.
One of the promises I made to myself and to my husband when I left the office was to make time for us, and to make time to travel. Jon had never been overseas before, so while we saved up so that I could leave, I told him to pick his top city in the world to visit. That day we bought plane tickets to Paris.
The tickets were for June, and we bought them in January - so we had time to get excited. By the time we made it, we were ecstatic! We got off the plane, took the train into the city, and immediately got drenched by a downpour.
Then we got lost.
Luckily, that was the worst part of the trip. Once we found our airbnb (5 min walk from the Louvre), we were home. That week was incredible, and now Jon has the travel bug along with me.
Since we’re headed to our next destination on Friday, I figured it was time to share a few pictures from the trip! Make sure you follow along on my Instagram for real time updates!
We went to the Eiffel tower quite a few times. Including to photograph a couples shoot that will be up on the blog this winter!
We didn’t go to a show, but we had to walk by. Our wedding song was from the movie Moulin Rouge. <3
So so so many steps to hike up.
But the view was worth it!
We stayed near a small grocery store and had one meal a day at home (always with french bread, cheese & wine!)
