It's not the nicest weather here in New York, below freezing and very gray. And from what I understand, it's the name in Sweden. So I thought I'd bring some back some pictures from the summer!
In July, Margaux and I went to Paris. It was her birthday present from Micke and I when she turned 8, since Celeste recieved a trip to Paris when she turned 8. And to follow the tradition, I will take Caprice to Paris when she turns 8.
Sometimes it can be incredibly cozy to do things with only one of my children. You get the chance to talk about things you don't always get to talk about, and you even get to know each other a little better.
Vi stayed at a very cozy little hotell: Hotel des Grandes Ecoles, in Quartier Latin. The hotel is surrounded by an incredibly beautiful little yard with beautiful flowers. You eat breakfast in the yard. All the rooms ar different, with Toile de Jouy or floral wallpaper with matching fabrics in the room.
Our first room had a floral wallpaper.
Margaux's adorable floral dress from H&M matched the wallpaper!
After two nights, we got to switch to this beautiful room with Toile wallpaper!
Couldn't help but also take a picture of the beautiful neighboring room!
The hotel is very central. You can walk almost anywhere, for example, Jardin du Luxembourg.
And near the Seine and bridges where you can put up a lock with your lovers name on it and throw the key in the Seine. So Romantic!
Obviously Margaux and I had to write each others names on a lock and threw the keys in the Seine.
After that we continued to walk to the Louvre and Jardin des Tuileries where there is a:
With one of the worlds most astonishing views!
We weren't able to buy tickets to the Eiffeltower, but what did that do when we saw a view this good! The problem with the Eiffeltower is that you can't see - yes, that's right - the Eiffeltower!
On the last day we went to Versaille.
Margaux and I both agreed that the most beautiful thing in Versaille was Petite Trianon. Marie Antoinette's "Playhouse". A "little" castle, if you compare with the royal palace. Marie Antoinette built an imaginary British town. There she and her servant would dress up like farmers and pretend that they lived an easy country life. (Marie Antionette never had a childhood nor even met a normal person, so she didn't know any better.)
Marie Antionette probably thought that a farmer's kitchen actually did look like this; marble from the floor to the ceiling.
Incredibly gorgeous and magical!
She even had "fake" crops.
Au Revoir Paris!!
