Bonjour Paris!



Time to celebrate Mom’s 80th birthday by going to Paris with her girls!

This is our plane landing on French soil.  I am very excited to have wonderful French food after taking one look and passing on the airline gluten free meals during our flight.  Not sure who made up the GF meals but I do not think they are entirely clear about the concept.  Let’s just say there was a lot of rice cakes and fake butter.

Arriving at our hotel was like seeing an old friend again, Relais Bosquet, Mom and I had stayed here over 12 years ago. Here is a cute little picture of our room with my sister, Dana, as the model.


Yes, very cute and tiny, isn’t it?  Not only is this hotel wonderful but it is close to Rue Cler Paris Market,  The Eiffel Tower and the Metro.

The Rue Cler Paris Market is steps away from the entrance of our hotel. We could not resist a stroll in the market after unpacking.


Lovely fruit, vegetables, meats, breads and sweets to choose all along Rue Cler Market.

Don’t forget the beautiful flowers to decorate your room with!


Mmmmmm…so many new and interesting fruits to try!  


No, it is not fish eggs.  Can you name this berry?

Fun Fact about Rue Cler Paris Market: While Americans prefer chicken, pork, and beef, the French eat just as much duck, quail, lamb, and rabbit. Horse has gone out of fashion in the last decade. (The meat came from Eastern Europe where safety standards were questionable.)

Merci de votre visite

  1. What fun fun fun! Thank you for the photos. Makes me live vicariously through you! We are in stealth mode for moving this weekend. The garage is almost done — painted and sealed floor, insulation, everything taken out and then the real fun begins — Bobby will make shelves. So while you are having tea at Ladourre Bakery on the Champs Elyses, I will be packing boxes in 110 Fresno heat! haha! Can’t wait to see you when you get back so you can share everything. If you are willing and are checking your baggage, bring home a jar of Maile mustard for your friend and neighbor. The recipe is different over there and makes amazing vinegarettes. I’ll show you how! 🙂 Love you! — Denice
