Of course I love dining with friends in Paris, the more the merrier, but lunch, glass of wine,  or a special cup of tea or chocolat chaud alone is always lovely. Ladurée on Bonaparte is a place I seem to always go back to. My favorite is rose petal ice cream and violet tea.

Paris Rouge à Nöel - Merci

Merci, located in the Marais, is one of our favorite stores. At Christmas this cute little voiture rouge is perfect.

Nöel à Paris

Café Nemours. The simple green trees are the perfect decoration.

Noël à Paris - Galerie Vivienne

For several trips we stayed in a lovely apartment owned by friends of ours in Cincinnati. It's a terrific location, just blocks from the Palais Royal and across the street from Galerie Vivienne. This beautiful passage is my favorite. At Christmas it's magical.

Temporarily Out of Order

Many of you have asked if I'm in Paris this week. Well, it was planned, but the massive strikes, including Metro, buses and oh so much more were scheduled to start today, so I made the decision to postpone the trip. No one knows for certain how long the strikes will last, but from what I've read, they won't even sit down and talk till Monday and who knows what will result. We hope to make the trip in February or March. Surely they will have all gone back to work by then!

In the meantime, I will continue to share the Noël à Paris photos from years past.
