Happy Monday, loves!

| 'Tis the Season
.
Holiday shopping in full effect. If you are watching my Story, you know I'm spending the weekend in Milano. It's my last weekend in Europe before heading home to spend the holidays with my family.
.
Where will you be spending the holidays?

| A Sign
.
Paris oozes art...even in business. I loved wandering upon this shop getting a new sign, hand painted by someone with his own handy business of doing just that. Swipe left to see this photo in motion.

| Winter Blooms
.
I love how easy it is to find cozy respite in Paris in the Winter...respite with blooms even!
.
One of my new favorites is @peoniesparis , definitely have the cookie with delicate flower petals sprinkled on top...they are infused with the taste of Summer.

| Croissant
.
Most of us know to stay clear of certain topics for general, friendly conversation, like money, politics, religion...
.
I'm learning that opinions about pastry in Paris should be on this list too.
.
I get the most DMs about this when I post a claim about my opinions of "the best" this or that. Especially when it comes to croissant.
.
I don't know how many croissants are made daily in Paris, or how many cafes and patisseries there are but it must be a mind-blowing amount.
.
What I do know is that I'm currently, wildly, madly in-love with my favorite Paris croissant made by a man famous for his macarons...
.
Behold the @pierrehermeofficial pain au chocolat with pistachio! If you ask me today what my favorite croissant is in Paris, or what one of the best is? I submit this beauty as my answer.
.
Thank you @pierrehermeofficial for the brand-new café in the 6th, seconds from my studio...I have zero willpower and have been feasting regularly.

| Neck Duvet
.
If you are watching my Story these days then you know I've started dating in Paris. One of my dates asked me how I felt about the French scarf culture, he said it was as if they all wore "duvets..."
.
Neck duvets. Oui! What do I think? Sounds parfait to me! Especially today, it was 9 degrees...
.
Just one more week and I'm trading in my duvet for a bikini for the holidays...and just the thought of this, and the duvet, make the chill bearable.

| French...
.
My newest endeavor.
.
It's humbling to start from scratch. My French lessons are filled with more than language acquisition, they are the beginning of a beautiful phase and I feel long time coming chapter in my life...

"You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view... Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it." - Harper Lee
.
From one of my very favorite books, which I taught to my sophomore classes when I taught high school English.
.
I was reminded of how fond I am of this book when I saw a group of French students carrying it on the metro recently.
.
Literature is universal, and I'm currently madly in-love with the conversations and language that can be inspired by this notion.
.
Do you know which book I'm quoting here? And, have you read it?

Officially in the holiday spirit, thanks to @lavalleevillage. Swipe left to watch the lighting of the village which happens every year at this time.
.
This outdoor luxury mall just outside of Paris boasts 110 designer boutiques - all in one area, and is the most perfect destination for splurgy holiday shopping.

| Sundays in Paris
.
On Sundays we brunch...and on some Sundays some of us tour vegan places in Paris and eat just a bit at each spot as we tour. Whoever thought of this, is brilliant!
.
Today included: juice and scones, veggie tacos and beans, sweets, pastries, tea, and the yummiest vegan burger in Paris.
.
Do you brunch too?

To say I have a favorite cafe in Paris might be a bit crazy, there are soooo many that I love. But if you need to find me, you can find me here...it's at the top of my list.
.
J'adore @obladicafe.
.
Do you have a favorite cafe in Paris? Tell me!

Caught in the act of wandering this past week. Seems apropos that my wandering now includes a Palais.
