Christmas around the world: Paris

I miss our Vicarious Vacations. Do you? I do love to research new places and although it was hours of work, I miss that feeling of discovery. So...I thought I would start a new little series celebrating the holidays. These journeys won't be as thorough as the VV's, but I couldn't resist hunting down beautiful images of places around the world and how they look at this special time of the year. I asked Grace which city I should begin with and of course she said, "Paris!" Together we perused Flickr, finding the prettiest pictures of Paris during Christmas.

Here's what we found...

The City of Lights certainly doesn't disappoint. It would be truly magical to stroll the Parisian street during Christmas. Maybe one day we will...

Hope you have a lovely Monday.

Strings of Light

We went on sunset cruise while we were in Maui and I became totally obsessed taking pictures as night fell and the sun slipped beneath the waves. I especially liked the string of lights that twinkled gold against the deep blues of the sky. Thought I'd share... Have a lovely Wednesday.
