I have returned from a wonderful holiday in the UK and Paris.  
This was my fourth trip to France 
and I had forgotten what a beautiful city it is
with its own strong individuality
true Parisien lifestyle and beauty.

I am a born traveller and no trip has ever been too daunting
for me. This trip was very special as I took my
teenage daughter and I could see Paris through her eyes.

My feet are always the first to feel the pinch though!

This week at Inspiration Avenue I am hosting
Je t'adore Paris, I love Paris.

Where else in the world do you have hot chocolate
and a croissant to dunk, for breakfast?

Paris has been called the city of love,
and there is plenty to love in Paris.

The love of shopping.  Here departmental stores
look like cathedrals with golden domes and spires.

The love of art all things beautiful

The love of the Divine Feminine.
In true Parisien style they have their very own
Blessed Mary
Notre Dame de Paris - Our Lady of Paris
and you will find images of her everywhere

and of course romantic love

Please follow me to Inspiration Avenue and come and celebrate belle amour with us.
