This is part one, of my two part Paris photo diary series. We had so much fun the few days we were there.

We had the most amazing meal at the Hôtel San Regis. I actually felt like I was part of the royal family!

The restaurant had beautiful crown and base molding, high ceilings, stunning bronze chandeliers and plush tufted seats. 

One of my favorite things about Paris is the outside seating. It’s so nice to enjoy a cup of coffee and just people watch. 

I have been to Paris a few times, but this was my first time actually going inside of the Louvre! I was SOOO excited to see THE Mona Lisa.

For those that don’t know, I am a huge fan of arts. My favorite artist is Monet, and my favorite paintings are the Water Lilies.

You can’t go to Paris and not get a shot of the Eiffel Tower. Due to increased terrorist attacks in Paris, a lot had changed. Security has increased, so we couldn’t go right up to the tower without waiting in a seemingly endless line. The extra security made you feel safe, but it did take the carefree beauty of the old Paris away.
