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...

DSC_0330While not a New Year's Eve destination this year, the Best of 2014 travel for me included multiple trips to Paris. Speaking from experience, nothing beats a New Year or Bonne Année in the City of Light. My first time seeing the Eiffel Tower at night was on New Year's Eve, 1990 with Mr. Weekend In Paris. It was the 100th anniversary of the tower and the excitement of the occasion was palpable. Of course the evening was all the more special since Mr. Weekend In Paris' birthday is at midnight! I instantly fell in love with the iron lady of Paris and my grandmother's heritage. France, you are in my blood!
