A Day on the Champs-Elysees
Not the entire day was spent on the Champs-Elysees but a large portion of today was spent there. Mostly in the "Maison de Louis Vuitton" which I recommend to anyone and everyone.
I started my morning by walking to meet my dear friend Alyssa at the Neuilly sur Seine market, which is held on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. On the way to the market I snapped some beautiful autumn shots...
^ Why yes, those two women walking together are nuns. ^
Amazing floral shop on the way to the market:
Because toast is just not enough for breakfast for my diet, I took the liberty of achete-ing some organic yogurt at the market:
Once Alyssa & I found our way to the Champs-Elysees
After waiting in line for a while to actually get into the store:
We literally spent hours here!
It is like a museum, totally overwhelming & brilliant at the same time. Anyone planning to visit me while I'm here, fear not, I will go back as many time as I can. I have also made a sweet list of all the items I plan to collect... over the course of my entire life. :)
Once Alyssa & I were sufficiently overwhelmed with sensory overload from being in the "House of Louis Vuitton" for so long, we decided on a change of scenery and thus said good bye to the Champs-Elysees for the day.
The flea market had closed for the day, for the most part. No worries, found our way into a boulangerie. Ahem, two boulangeries, actually!
After our snack of sweets, we grabbed some fruit...
and headed home...
We have a BIG day ahead of us tomorrow!!! Me plus five others are taking the RER to Versailles for the day!!! We are all so excited and can't wait to spend the day together. I am so thankful for such wholesome, hilarious, full-of-character girlfriends. My friends have kept me laughing (and eating!!!) constantly. It will be really fun to do this all together before we start classes next week. My anxieties surrounding going abroad were mainly that I would not find a core few friends to stick with for the semester... God has truly "shown up" for me here, as He always does, and blessed me with some special people. I am truly thankful.
Love to all...
