City of Lights.

Eiffel TowerWell, they definitely call Paris the “City of Lights” for a reason, especially in the Winter. I can’t imagine what the energy bill looks like!

Wine Bottles(One of my favorite parts of Paris were the window displays. Twinkle lights make everything a little more beautiful!)

I feel so lucky to have experienced France in the Winter, while it is the down time I can’t imagine it gets any better!

  1. Beautiful photos Chelsea, you are so lucky to have made this trip! The tower must be something to behold up close in person. Built so long ago, it still stands tall and proud. Lucky you!
