I have a sweet story to share with you today. I hope you won't mind the departure from our normal fare - but this is a very special occasion.
We'll start on last Monday.
A walk through the early morning streets of Paris, hand-in-hand, just the two of us.
A stop at Notre Dame cathedral, where we get in line for the climb up to the towers.
After a short (2 hour) wait, we take the short (400 step) climb to the first observatory level.
We made friends with the gargoyles...
... and enjoyed the spectacular views.
We even spied a couple taking wedding pictures down below!
It was very romantic.
The bell tower was very impressive...
But it was the views of Paris that took my breath away (not the climb, promise)!
But then, there was another view that was even more beautiful...
Somehow, we made it back down the stairs and over to the Pont de l'Archeveché...
.... the bridge where Parisians declare their love by securing padlocks to the bridge and throwing away the key.
I am truly the luckiest girl in the world :)
