After an all too brief 4 day stay in Paris we are certainly sad to be leaving. Today we watched the sun set over Paris from the top of the Arc du Triomphe. Then we walked hand in hand in the rain to the Eiffel Tower.

With a late night picnic on the lawns of the Champ de Mars, we held each other tight and gazed up at the twinkling tower as we bid farewell to La Ville-Lumière. The City of Light.

Instead of walking back to our apartment near the Louvre or catching a taxi, we decided to rent some bicycles and meander our way home. While we were collecting our bicycles I noticed this magical scene nearby. Quickly, I took this photo and then we slipped away unnoticed.

As Katie and I cruised the streets of Paris at midnight, we felt much like I expect this unknown couple were feeling at this moment.

Like the only two people in the world.

Adieu Paris, vous allez nous manquer.

    Oh! I had tears in my eyes before the end of the first line... some would blame the onions, but I know it's cause my heart can't wait for the day that I get to share an evening in Paris with my husband, Matt. Hope you both have a wonderful, rejuvenating time together for the rest of your travels!
