The week in pictures

It really was an exceptional week. The weather. The friends. The food. The pace.

I mean, I can’t even remember the last time I was slow at work. But this week was one, long heavenly reprieve filled with fabulous moments such as long lunches, practiced in the proper French way: outdoors, with meat and wine involved …

(no meat for me; asparagus is in season!)

A post-meeting drink at a café….

(with still more evidence of the Frenchies influence: "Cocas" and Perrier, bien sur.)

Breakfast meetings with croissants, and meetings on the rooftop terrace…

Champagne to celebrate our latest work, and…

Friday was Lady GaGa Day.

Don't ask. But needless to say, things at the office have warmed up.

In the evenings, I caught up with friends: Mel, Jo, Sarah, and Michael—my core—along with newer friends. Café terraces, hidden squares, les Buttes Chaumont as the spring sun fell…

The weather inspired good cheer and beaucoup Velib riding. Twice, I got to ride to the Champs-Elysée, taking a turn into Place Vendome for this awesome view...

I hope you all had a brilliant week, too!


  1. Sounds like a fantastic week! So much to treasure. Thanks for sharing, and I love the Lady Gaga at work. Looks like you have a fun crew to work with. =)

  2. I read on Le Parisien that they're turning the Champs Elysée into a garden this weekend?! Looks like you would have an amazing view!

  3. How will you ever be able to leave Paris?

    Love the ET photos on your sidebar.

  4. Love the Lady Gaga day at work theme. Where do you work?
    And have I mentioned how much I love your blog!
