However, my plans to share a little about my one-day adventure to Paris will not be thwarted, so behold- my trip to Paris shown through the awkward selfies taken with my iPhone.

By midday, a lot more tourists were out and about and offering to help me take pictures of myself in front of things, but by that point I had a series going and felt the need to finish strong. Also, I don't let Scott touch my phone, much less some stranger in a foreign country. Hah.
As you can see, I hit a lot of the high points in one day- and even though I bought (and used!) a Metro day pass, I still ended up walking 17 miles. By the end my feet felt like little swollen stumps. And then I proceeded to limp around the apartment for the next few days. So if you are going to run away for a day, wear more comfortable shoes than I did- the best way to experience a new city is by foot.
Next week I'll share a few of the highlights of my "real" pictures, because Paris is just too pretty not to share. Until then, enjoy your weekend everybody! Xo!
