Février Passionné ❤️ Les Cafe Deux Magots letter

 

The colonne Morris near me is hot pink and says, ‘FEVRIER PASSIONNÉ’ ❤️ Are you thinking Saint-Valentine day ?

A new, very grand Italian tea salon opened inside Carrousel du Louvre (imported from London). Caffé Concerto has special Mona Lisa Valentine macarons.

Yesterday 75002

 

Yesterday I had to go to Centre des finances publiques for a copy of my 2023 taxe d’habitation form, which I couldn’t find anywhere at home (same ole, same ole). Turns out we no longer pay the annual 400€ taxe d’habitation 🍾🤸‍♂️

Feeling great relief (and since I was near Galerie Vivienne) I thought I’d take a stroll.

Rougier & Plié, materials des beaux arts

Last night I made myself go to the art store, even though it was already
 dark outside. In cold weather, hibernation sets in. Too many Bears 🧸  🐻 hanging around.

Once outside, it feels great. Does that happen to you? Paris at night is well worth exploring.
