Traveling in style

11 Aug

Chris and I celebrated our first year of marriage together this past weekend! If I’m not mistaken, your first anniversary is to be celebrated with some sort of modest gift made of paper. We wholeheartedly agreed that since we are lucky enough to celebrate our first anniversary in Paris, the city of lights and love, we should do something a bit more flashy and romantic than something made of paper. So, we rented a Vespa for 24 hours! We cruised the streets of Paris on a beautiful sunny day, making stops along the way in our favorite parts of town to go for a stroll, grab some lunch, lounge in a few parks, and have a sunset picnic along the Seine. The adventure definitely turned out to be one of the highlights of this extended vacation/honeymoon/30-year old life-hiatus we are currently spending in Paris. Check out the photos.

    Absolutely lovely. What a beautiful way to celebrate one year of marriage..
    Pictures are great. Midnight in Paris type.
    You should do that on the last day too.
