When you become a mother your world suddenly becomes filled with little luxuries: drinking a hot cup of coffee without reheating it, walking without a stroller, sitting down to eat a meal in its entirety from start to finish, and travelling to Paris. These are just some of the luxuries that I indulged in this week. After a long term of evenings of solo parenting, cold coffee, cold meals and the inability to carry on an adult conversation I took the opportunity to visit some friends of mine who are living their dream in Paris.
My short little reprieve was all that I had hoped it would be as we caught up on the exciting places life is taking us, inspirations, photography, food, films and babies.
We walked the streets of Paris with no agenda, taking in the breathtaking views, romantic architecture and crisp late-autumn air.
The evening however, was, by fair my favourite part of Paris! My dear friend Robyn whom I have to thank for the lovely time arranged dinner for us at Mon Oncle Le Vigneron. Wine shop by day, restaurant by night, this was truly a dining dream come true as the french proprietor and his japanese wife prepared an understated meal which was both refined and comforting. The atmosphere was light and amiable, the wine was bold and the experience, cherished.
This, however, was just a taste before we take the family to Paris in April. Until then, À Bientôt!
