I'll start with the most recent trip (aka The Grand Finale)... Paris!
I went to Madrid for work, but a few of my co-workers and I decided it would be a good idea to stop in Paris on our way home for a long weekend. We made a wise choice!
After catching an EXTREMELY early flight from Madrid, we arrived in Paris. All we could think about was getting to our hotel and taking a nap. Unfortunately... this was not possible. When we arrived at our hotel, we were told our room was under construction, so we would need to stay down the road.
Let me preface by saying Abby, Stephanie and I had decided to get a room with a double bed and a couch to share instead of getting two rooms - to save a few bucks. This would have worked out perfectly if we were in the original hotel, but... our new Hotel Paris Paix was TINY - big enough to fit a double bed and that was IT.

After we dropped our bags off at the hotel, we decided to grab a cappuchino and croissant. We couldn't have picked a better/cuter/more Parisian place if we tried. It definitely got the trip started off on the right foot!
We did more sightseeing on day two, but the HIGHLIGHT of my day was going to RALPH'S. It is the CUTEST little cafe owned by Ralph Lauren. So, of course, we had to stop in for a glass of wine!

On our third and final day in Paris, we had breakfast on Rue Cler, drank wine in The Tuileries, had the world's best hot chocolate & macaroons from Angelina's and capped off the trip with another dinner at The Eiffel Tower.
