Enjoying the Sun in the Tuileries by Carin Olsson (Paris in Four Months)

Yesterday the weather was absolutely amazing in Paris so I had to trade my favourite arm chair inside for one in the Tuileries. It's impossible to stay inside when the sun is out and it feels like a warm spring day! I spent the whole morning just soaking up as much of the sun as possible while enjoying some Pierre Hermé macarons (caramel and praline noisette). For lunch I met up with Vicky at Le Loir dans la Theiere and then went for a walk around sunny Le Marais. I love strolling around there on a sunny day, the whole area is packed with people wanting to get some of that sun at cosy cafés.

The sun was so warm I was convinced that spring finally had made it to Paris, until I looked at the weather forecast for the coming week... Snow and freezing temperatures are expected in Paris and many other places around Europe. Eeiiik!

The Seine by Carin Olsson (Paris in Four Months)

During the afternoon I meet up with Edna and we made a stop at Comme à Lisbonne to pick up a few treats to bring along down to the border of the Seine. The wonderful sun + amazing company + yummy treats + the view of Notre Dame + a couple of guitar players playing the intro melody to the movie Midnight in Paris made this afternoon seem totally surreal.

A few hours along the Seine then turned into a dinner at our favourite Italian place with much laughter and tiramisu, which then turned into a lesson in flirting with French bartenders, haha (let's just say that I have a looong way to go). It was the perfect Saturday in other words!
