You guys, I'm having a major new-mama-love-overload as I'm writing this! :) Is it just me, or is having an Eiffel tower picnic super high on every first-time mama's fantasy list? Given my general obsession with outdoor picnics and beautiful Paris, I just couldn't wait to share this experience with our boy! So on a regular September afternoon, in between all the Paris Fashion Week chaos, it just seemed like the perfect thing to do. We picked up all of our favourite French treats of fresh croissants, baguettes, blue grapes, creamy cheese & macarons, and off we went! The Champ de Mars, the little green area surrounding the Eiffel Tower, can get a bit crowded (mostly with tourists, of course), but on this particular afternoon, it was surprisingly calm - probably due to the cloudy weather. And I swear: just as we spread out our little picnic blanket, the sun came peeking through the clouds, making the whole experience even more magical.
I know it sounds cliché, but Paris is such a special city to us, since it's where Marcio & I first met 11 years ago. So to introduce our baby boy to this iconic spot and take in the pretty scenery ... it really made my heart swell. :) It made me feel so proud to see him enjoy his new environment and follow all the action around him with his curious eyes. At only 4 months old, he's already the explorer we dreamed him to be, and it honestly made me so excited to explore the world with him!
Thanks so much for following along, and for all of your sweet messages and comments to this post; they mean so much to us! :) xx big kiss
