    What perfection your day must have been! Especially with that bath…everything feels more luxurious in the afternoon I think…

    It was great spending time with you in Paris, Pia! On Wednesday I went to WH Smith and took photos of your window, which still looks great. Will post the images tomorrow. xo

    I am loving these online excursions into Paris, Pia. Thanks for letting us have a good window-view of what you got up to!
    One of my favourite things to do, when I feel a little alone in the city, is to go into Shakespeare & Co and eavesdrop on the cnoversations! I understand a little bit of French but it is nice to go somewhere where your brain can entirely take in all the chatter around you.
    Plus, it’s a cool bookstore.
