Jolie Paris xxx

I have been a little preoccupied lately between monster parties and finalising details FOR OUR TRIP!! We leave next week and though only away for a short while you know you will feel better if every detail has been sorted and every bill paid etc before you leave, it is just madness in the meantime.
So here we have it, our first stop and where better - Place des Vosges in Marais Paris.
"Originally known as the Place Royale, the Place des Vosges was built by Henry IV from 1605 to 1612. A true square (140 m x 140 m), it embodied the first European program of royal city planning. It was built on the site of the Hôtel des Tournelles and its gardens: at a tournament at the Tournelles, a royal residence, Henri II was wounded and died. Catherine de Medicis had the Gothic pile demolished, and it was removed to the Louvre" via wikipedia.




There I am lounging on the grass in a very french way, casual but effortlessly elegant (perhaps I should practice that before I leave) nibbling/savouring/certainly not rampantly devouring a fresh crossaint. There I go with a swish of my just out of bed hair (may need to get extensions during stopver in Dubai). Tres chic! - should probably run through that french expressions cd again.
