{paris: week ten}

This past week in Paris was a total dream- the weather warmed up significantly which was perfect for showing our friends around the city who stayed with us during the week.  We crossed a lot of sights off our list that we had previously never seen before like the breath-taking Sacre Coeur Basilica and the impressive Notre Dame cathedral.  We also took a day-trip out to the Palace of Versailles which I'll be doing a full post on soon!  Having friends in town meant we got to have a lot of fun nights out for dinner and drinks including one of our new favorites, Club Raye, and a delicious dinner at one of our restaurant neighbors, Les Cocottes.

This upcoming week is our last full week in Paris before four of our friends meet us in the city and we embark together on a two week trip to Spain, Morocco and Bordeaux in the south of France.  I want to soak up as much of this city as possible in our last couple days here, but I know this week will probably be spent preparing and packing for the upcoming trip as well as shopping for a few things to wear in the 80 degree heat of Morocco!
