Europe: Simply Irresistible Link Party

Good morning! Today I am participating in a fabulous link party, called Europe: Simply Irresistible hosted by Anita of the blog Castles Crowns and Cottages.

I love to travel and although I have been to visit many beautiful places in the world I have a long love affair with Paris.

ALL Image taken by me!

 I simply cannot get enough of her beauty and return time after, time after time. 

I never tire of seeing the Eiffel tower up close

From afar

or at night. 

The cute little pups awaiting their masters outside the store 

or walking in the park always make me smile.

I take breakfast at the cafe

or while away the day sipping one of the many cups of chocolat that I enjoy throughout my stay

I love to ponder the history of this beautiful city

while walking the same roads others have walked for hundreds and hundreds of years. 

A visit or two, at my favorite place, in my favorite garden, 

to sit and talk with friends or to observe the beauty of life and nature is a must for every trip. 

The food is known the world over but when in Paris 

my favorite thing to do is visit the patisserie

to sample an eclair or two.

The museums, 

the sights,

the shopping

 and the sounds all combine to make me fall more deeply in love each time I visit.

Perhaps on my next visit I should leave a lock on the bridge with the inscription{ Elizabeth & Paris 4-Ever}?


For me there is not just one thing that is "simply irresistible" about Pairs, it is the whole magical place! I cannot wait for my next trip to discover something new and to enjoy my old favorites as well.

If you love to travel I hope that you visit Castles Crowns and Cottages to check out the over 40 other blogs participating in this great party.

Have a great weekend!

NOTE: Anita would like our posts up for a week and that is perfect because I am taking a little break while we have guests in town. I will be back on the 25th. In the meantime enjoy all of the links to the party! They are fabulous!

    Merveilleuse idée que la sienne qui nous permet de découvrir de superbes endroits.
    Tes belles images me donnent envie de revoir Paris ...

  5. I have never been to Paris, but its many charms certainly make it an enticing destination. I often wonder if my high school level French would do me any good over there! Probably not! That's ok, as long as I can point to the pastries to order, I'm good! Thanks for sharing!

  6. Thank you Elizabeth for taking me back to my ultimate favorite place. Keep this post up all week (take a break from posting!!!) and let others come to see your post. How I love what you did by adding one of Paris's charms: THE DOGS, les chiens, who have such a special look in their eyes and are mostly small and scrappy babies!!!!

    Have a lovely day, Anita

  7. Beautiful shots of the city. I'd love to see it for myself someday.

  23. Bonjour Elizabeth,

    Paris is fabulous and I enjoyed seeing your wonderful photos. Thanks for sharing and giving us the little escape today
    Every time I have visited, I love it more.
    Happy week

  24. So much to love about Paris. I have been once many years ago - may have to go again after this wonderful reminder of a city I love!

  25. Hello Elizabeth,
    All of your photography is marvelous! I really enjoyed my tour and have
    more of a vision of what Paris is all about! Delightful!
    Thank you for sharing! :-D
    Many many Blessings, Linnie

  26. Elizabeth, like you, I am always there, my friend.
    I saved you for the last point of Anita's journey of journeys...
    I knew that you would be meeting me in Paris.
    You say..."the bridge"?
    (I packed a lock too!)
    Isn't blog travel fun?
    Enjoy your break!

  27. Oh no, see what happens when you have been away from blogging for 2 months. I missed this and much more. Now I have to catch up. I love your view of Paris and that fact that after many visits, you are still in love with her. I have to admit mine is a love hate relationship. Sometimes she's charming, others just dirty and crowded. However, I still want to go back. She's a mysterious beauty indeed.

    Hope you are having a lovely summer Elizabeth.
    Much Love

  28. Hey gorgeous, this post is so evocative, lovely & soft. I love the close-ups of the simple things. And, I'm also loving Anita's party! xx's

  29. Elizabeth & Paris ForEver, I love it. It says it all.
    One can see from your photographs how you love your Paris.
    Have a good week

  30. You've done such a lovely job of showing the slice of life pictures of Paris. Some day I'd love to visit. What a great party idea, I'm off to see more of Anita's party.

  31. I just love this post! I really, really want to go to Paris now... You absolutely must do the lock with you and Paris. Love it! xo Kristy
