days one and two in paris were hot, hot, hot… and i had to wear the lightest summer dresses that i packed. the first thing i noticed was the flowers, especially roses, in bloom everywhere. it’s probably because i’m so interested in gardening right now… i especially loved the rooftop and balcony gardens. we spent our whole time in paris walking and wandering. we pretty much avoided the tourist sights and decided to not even go to a single museum (which josh’s brother said was “shocking!”)– but we had both been to paris as teenagers and went to all the museums and sights, so this time we wanted to see the rest of the city. my photos are kind of a strange mix of snapshots this time…. i didn’t document everything as well as our scandinavia trip. but sometimes it’s nice to put away the camera. the sweet cat lived in the apartment next to our hotel room and ran over to say hi every time he saw me. we named him antoine after a french cat who lived below us in the west village.
