"Hold my hand... Paris is for lovers"

Today ends our second (and final) full day in Paris.  It has been such a fun journey to be on together!  Here is a list of what we've been up to the last couple of days :-)

Day One:
-We saw Notre Dame Cathedral.  It was truly awe-inspiring.  The best part was that we were there in the middle of a service and got to hear the magnificent organ playing as well as the choir singing.  It was beautiful!
-We walked along the Seine River.
-Ate a Nutella Crepe
-We walked outside of the Louvre
-We shopped on the Champs d'Elysees (Basically Paris' version of 5th Avenue in NYC)
-We took pictures in front of the Arch de Triomphe
-Walked along the parks up to and under the Eiffel Tower at night.
-Went and found a crepe shop when we got home for my second Nutella crepe of the day

Day Two:
-Went shopping for some new shoes.  (I made very, very poor choices in foot attire.  I had not anticipated the amount of walking we were actually going to do.  My goodness am I paying for it!)  The new shoes helped, but did not fix the problem.
-Ate a Nutella Crepe
-Went to the Eiffel Tower and took the elevator to the very top!  Kissed my husband at the summit and can now knock that right off of my bucket list :-)
-Attempted to go see the Catacombs, but failed.
-Successfully went and saw Sacre-Coeur cathedral
-Ate a Nutella Crepe
-and the Moulin Rouge.  Love the movie, hate the neighborhood it was in.  Oy.
-Went out to visit Lindsay at the home she is living in and met the lovely family she lives with.  The girls all bonded singing along to "High School Musical 3".
-We went out to dinner with Lindsay and Damien
-Went back to Damien's teeny tiny apartment

They were two very full days!  Josh has been taking a lot of pictures (aren't they amazing?!) and I am so thankful for his ability to capture things in such a profound way.  I hope you are enjoying them as much as I am!
