A few days in Paris is always a good idea. Tom and I drove to Paris for a little getaway and got back last night. Up until about 5 minutes ago, I thought today was Monday and had this titled Monday Mishmash. Ooops. So why the trip? To see one of my favorite singers, Damien Rice, in concert and for a work meeting. I bought tickets for the concert back in February and it was absolutely amazing. The last time I saw Damien Rice live was in New York City back in 2008 or 2009 and seeing him live again was a treat. Also while there, I finally made it over to Rue Cremieux… one of the most colorful streets in Paris.
When you think of Paris, you can’t help but think of the Eiffel Tower and the Seine and Notre Dame and a handful of other tourist must-sees. But lately, I’d see a colorful little street on bloggers’ Instagram feeds and wanted to check it out for myself. So on Saturday when we were staying near Gare de Lyon, we made the 5-minute walk to Rue Cremieux and snapped the pretty shots below. If you’re ever in the area, take a stroll down the pretty Paris street.
- We saw Jurassic World and I liked it! Good action movie and it kept me on the edge of my seat. The product placement was a little over the top at times but overall I liked it. And Chris Pratt is pretty easy on the eyes. So there’s that.
- I had blood drawn for my yearly physical at a lab in town over a week ago and the woman was a brute and messed up my arm. No gloves, no cleaning of the skin before and no warning. Just a stab. Afterwards, my arm really killed and I couldn’t extend it or move it much without a weird pulling sensation radiating up and down my arm. Day 2 is when the bruising started. And now it’s been 9 days and my arm is still not 100% normal.
- Don’t forget I’m still accepting guest post submissions for later this summer. You can still submit your pitch!
