There is nothing more that I love then whisking off to Paris to rent an apartment in the heart of Saint-Germaine-des-Pres during the fall. The colors and smells of Paris are ones I always love to come back to and especially during the brisk autumn season. This past week spent in Paris was a magical time to relax, unwind, and go explore the city. Heading to spots that were overly familiar that I could swear the server recognized me, then going to spots that were new and surprising. I love both. Something about the mix of the familiar and unfamiliar makes a trip a pleasant balance of comfort and new. 

Paris during the fall is truly unlike any other times. The cold air makes the cappuccinos that much better and the cafes even cozier. As my husband and I explore most of the city, it was great to be outside during the day and when our fingers were too cold we ducked into some of our favorite spots. This last week we made new memories and I thought I would share some of my old and new favorite spots across Paris. Of course the districts like the Marais and Saint Germain are my favorite so I don’t often wander to far from there, but all the same they are magical. 

Here are some postcards from Paris in some of my favorite spots…  

Strolls through the Jardin des Tuileries on a Sunday… 

Exploring Place des Vosges, a quaint square in the Marais…

Every morning started with a walk here. We headed to Le Hibou for breakfast to kick off the day…

The best people watching is of course at Jardin du Luxembourg. The gardens change with each season which makes it a new experience every time. Other top sights in Paris here.

My new favorite spot: Merci. This 3 in 1 stop is a curated shop with the best designers, a cafe, and a restaurant. I could of spent the whole day here. 

The famous words of Rimbaud near Saint Sulpice…

New favorite cafe: Cafe St Regis across from the Notre Dame…

Classic Parisian cafes…

Addiction to another level: L’éclair de Génie (More of my favorite treats here )

Saturday strolls through Île de la Cité…

Sunrise over the Seine – void of people, the best quiet moments in Paris…
