Context Travel Paris Chocolate and Pastry Tour

pierre hermé chocolate tourWhile recent medical reports have proven the health benefits of chocolate, the French do not need validation from scientists. For centuries they have realized the positive effects on mood and how including sweet cocoa treats in festivities adds to the joie de vivre. I had the pleasure of taking Context Travel’s Paris Chocolate and Pastry Tour and experiencing the depth of devotion Parisians have to my favorite food.

Joyeuses Pâques, Happy Easter in Paris

Notre dame nightThe lead up to Easter in Paris was phenomenal. I had a wonderful chocolate tour with Context Travel’s docent Alisa Morov and I visited several churches in preparation for Holy Week and the finale of Easter Sunday. I am thankful to be back in the U.S. with Mr. Weekend In Paris and our two sons to celebrate together. What a blessing! After all, you are, “no bunny, until some bunny loves you.” Please enjoy my Easter tribute to Paris…
