Paris - La Ville-lumière!

It's been one year since I married my wonderful husband and I can't help but think back on our honeymoon in Paris - the City of Light, the city of love. We rented an apartment online with Isabelle's Apartments and chose a place in the 5th arrondissement near La Sorbonne University called "Moliere". In the month of July the sun is up until 10pm. We walked the streets, sat in cafes, drank wine and truly enjoyed ourselves. I spent three years in Paris in my 20s and the city was as magical as I remembered it. Even my French returned to me and seemed to float effortlessly from my lips - especially after a glass or two of Bordeaux!

Bon anniversaire mes amis! One of the best weddings ever (especially how the ceremony took place after cocktails and before dinner!). Technically you are still newlyweds until midnight!

I was in Paris in 2001, June. We surprised my in-laws, who were there for their anniversary. Congratulations!

Marie Louise, thanks for stopping by LoveMomWorkLife.

I'm also a CT native. And love the Cape. And had read Anna Quindlen's piece some time ago.

Much luck to you in the career change, as you can see I am contemplating one myself. I'm going to have to keep an eye on you.

Best

Bonjour, I am here in Paris now and we are off touring to the Louvre today. My 3 children are full of excitement! Paris has always made my heart beat a little faster. We came to celebrate my in-laws 50th anniversary!
Happy Anniversary to you!

What a beautiful couple, and a lovely honeymoon! I've never seen a Paris sky so blue as in the last picture!!! :)

My childhood chum just returned from Paris and she talks of the two of us going there. Reading what you have experienced makes it even more dream like! And, then I scrolled down and see you are going to Cape Cod!! Have you read the book, My Own Cape Cod by Gladys Taber? It's old but I love the day by day tales she shares.
Have a marvelous vacation!!

Hey Harriet said...

Happy anniversary! Ahhh...Paris. A perfect honeymoon destination! I'm hoping to visit there one day. AND, you lived there for 3 years!?! I bet you have so many stories to share about that exciting adventure! I'm very envious!

Hey Marie! Such beautiful pictures. My own honeymoon was in a trekking camp (Hubby's idea). I remember staying up all night, terrified of snakes and scorpions, oh and how can i forget wild boars. It was a jungle out there!

India is pretty in parts and you made it to Jaipur, so good. I live in Mumbai. One word: CROWDED!

Hope you had a great time celebrating a year of being married.

Paris, what a wonderful city. I've never been myself but have always dreamed of it. I guess with the eurostar i've got no excuse now! I love your blog Marie Louise, it looks great and i'm amazed you've only been doing it for such a short time.

Lavinia Ladyslipper said...

Happy First Anniversary! You two are the very picture of happiness. Your husband is quite a handsome chap! Lucky you for spending your honeymoon in the city that spells romance for so many...and in quite a chic apartment.

May you have many more happy and healthy anniversaries...

M.Kate said...

Happy Anniversary and many more to come. I'd like to go there too :)

Hi Marie Louise, I've been looking at your blog and you have so many interesting, and in some cases, familiar things here. Thanks for stopping by my blogs and leaving your comment. It's nice to meet a fellow "Connecticutter." ;-)

Happy Anniversary! You had the honeymoon of my dreams : ) I wish you all the best.

Moliere apartments - they'd have to be named after the playwright, right?

I think his best-known work was The Imaginary Invalid.

Mrs.French said...

You guys are stunning...I am so jealous...one day.

Cassandra said...

Oh wow! What an amazing experience you must have had...both times! I would looove to go to Paris. I hear it's really the bees knees :)
