Hoooneymoon: Part Un

So, I been wanting to share our honeymoon trip with y'all for awhile.
It was the honeymoon of a lifetime!
Good thing because I only plan on taking one
We got married during hurricane season, so instead of going the Caribbean route we chose Europe!


3 cities 
10 days
4 flights
2 trains
2 very much in love Georgians 

Our first stop was Paris!

The Louvre - 3rd day in Paris 

We flew all night and arrived in Paris at 6 am
I was waaaay too excited to sleep on the plane, so when we arrived I was good for another 3 hours then I was pooped

We ate a breakfast of coffee and the first of many croissants 

Good Grief, I love bread

The face of jetlag!
and very little makeup 

We headed down the streets of Paris back to our lovely boutique hotel

The Hotel Luxenbourg Parc

jetlag face again

the hotel was perfection
I would totally recommend it to anyone traveling to Paris
they were so accommodating

our room was fabulous
very French chic
it also had a fabulous view

and a 
drool - one day, one day - you will be mine marble bathroom

a bathroom with a view

sadly, our check-in time was not for another 2 hours
*my pictures are a little out of order*
so we ventured next door to the
Jardin du Luxmbourg

which is the second largest public park in Paris
its beautiful
and so well maintained

ok, please excuse the hat
it was for our beach trip (second half of the honeymoon) - I couldn't pack it so I was forced to carry it around/wear it till we could check in, much to T's dismay
I obviously didn't care

I told you this place is gorgeous
so many people were up jogging at 6 am
which is, I guess, 
why French women don't get fat

So, we hung out in the park for awhile
T caught up on his Rick Steves guidebook reading
which I highly recommend purchasing for any trip to Europe - this man knows his stuff
meanwhile, I was taking a thousand pictures

and learned how to use my self-timer

Well, thats a tiny bit of the first day in Paris
Can't wait to show you more!

Much love everyone!!!

I am swoooooooning over these pics! I haven't been to Paris in years and Mr. D has never been. We're hoping to make it across the pond in the near future. We just need to save a little money first so we can live it up. I'm definitely going to have to ask you for Paris recs when we finally go. :) SO excited to read/see more!

You too cute in your straw hat. I showed the pics of your honeymoon to my husband. He says we have to go to France and Italy one day. If only for the food alone, we should make the trip. Since we're both total history nerds we also need to go. I look forward to seeing part deux :)
