I headed to Paris this past weekend with Margo, Melanie, Jen, and Alex! We had been talking about doing a blogger meet-up since this past fall so it was great for all of us to get together! I know Margo and Melanie pretty well because we all live(d) in Heidelberg (man, do I miss those girls and our coffee dates!) and I had met Jen on a previous trip to London. Even though this was my first time meeting Alex, I think we are going to be pretty good friends :) Plus she lives in Aberdeen, Scotland so we will be neighbors next year!
We rented an adorable apartment in the neighborhood of Marais and I loved that this was such a relaxed weekend. We would walk a few blocks, eat, shop in a few stores, eat, walk a bit more, eat. You see the pattern? Biggest disappointment of the weekend: the newest J.Crew store in Paris. I was so excited to see it (I might have mentioned a few times on this blog that I’m J.Crew’s number one fan. Seriously, I only wear J.Crew). And then it was such a huge letdown: small store, inflated prices, none of the basics I love. Ughhh, Paris J.Crew…step up your game!
However, I had a wonderful time eating lots of bread, cheese, and chocolate while sipping yummy wine. It was so nice to just sit around our apartment in the evenings and talk about everything: our lives, expat life, traveling, and blog! Plus, Sara dropped by and visited us one evening. Thanks again girls for a great weekend! :)
