ParisBreakfast is 3

Rue de Monttessuy, 75007,original art, 5" x 7"
Yup, today is ParisBreakfast's 3rd birthday...so to speak...
Eiffel Trocadero, original art, 5" x 7"
701 posts later...ahem
Eiffel Tower closeup,original art, 5" x 7"
So we're having a bit of an Eiffel Tower extravaganza...
Eiffel Poodle,original art, 5" x 7"
With plenty of French poodles attending!
We do have a little something to celebrate about.
Last trip in Paris, we forgot to go up in a balloon...
And we took a gazillion photos of all...
All the beautiful ballerines...
But we forgot to buy any!!?
Don't these "Tendances" macaron pastries look like ballerines? We forgot to taste them...
We forgot to go back and get another packet of these super FAB guimauves by La Mère de Famille too...
And we forgot to go and eat dinner at La Vagenende on Bd St Germain...
Soooooo....
the BIG NEWS is...
We're going BACK TO PARIS mid-May!!!!
Just for 12 days because AirFrance lowered their prices ridiculously...
And because it's our birthday in May...
And JUST BECAUSE!!!
Anyone got a Paris pup for me to rent?
BONJOUR PB Readers!!!!

    Oh Carol, what a delight that you are going back to Paris! Perhaps you
    can sign up for the Meet the French visit with Gerald Mulot on
    Thursdays. The tour is fun, they give away multiple macarons, and they
    let you take as many pictures as you want! The cost is only 10 euros
    besides.
