Postcard from Paris: En Vacances!

En vacances! Yes, I’m en vacances! And while it wasn’t my first choice to go to Paris in August it was the only time that we could go and so we’re here now!! Ouiiiiii! Now Paris is a gorgeous place to visit regardless of the season and unless you’re hanging out in le parvis de Notre Dame or some other tourist spot, it’s actually pretty calm and more relaxed during the summer months. But if you’ve ever been to the City of Light during la periode estivale you’re probably familiar with this sight:

While I am vacationing in Paris, it seems every other Parisien is vacationing away from it!  Storefronts throughout the city have taped little notes indicating the dates during which they are on holiday.

Everyone including Pierre Hermé has left town! Nooooooooon!
