Touches of holiday spirit: Paris photos
Mr. TWS and I were fortunate to take a trip to France early in December to kick off the holiday season and celebrate his birthday (a tradition we missed in 2020). So with lovely memories of our visit and hopes for brighter days ahead for all, we’re sharing a few images of Paris from the trip (most are also in our Instagram gallery) and links to previous Christmas posts. All the best to you and your families for a happy and healthy holiday and new year!
“A glimpse of Christmas on rue de Rivoli in Paris. The carousel and pretty decorated trees provided a lovely holiday glow even on a rainy day.” — TWS on Instagram
“So … how tempting does this pretty restaurant look? Next time I’m in Paris, I’m going to come here to @flore_en_lile_paris for dinner and their famous Berthillon ice cream.” — TWS on Instagram
“Signs of the season at Place de la Bastille, Paris” — TWS on Instagram
“Our last night in Paris. I’m going to miss this view from our room at @hotelpontroyalparis — it’s been a fantastic #triptofrance” — TWS on Instagram
