whirlwind weekend wrap-up

hey guys, happy monday. i’m back in the states after a worthwhile impromptu weekend in paris that sounds a lot more glam than it was since it was all biz.

i have to thank madelyn from paris perfect vacation rentals for hooking me up with the sweetest little pied-à-terre, pomerol in the 7e at the last minute.

i’ve mentioned madelyn before but just so you know, if you ever need a great contact in paris, she’s american, her hubby is a french surgeon and together they are just the people to know when you’re in town.

she’ll bend over backwards for you on every level. all her apartments have a view of the eiffel tower, lots of hot water, heat, mod kitchens and baths and in the summer, a/c. she knows what americans like but still keeps the spirit of a real paris apartment.

she has a way of making you feel super special like you’re an old family friend. thanks madelyn for making this little trip happen on the fly. hope i see you all there soon!
