We started our last day in Paris, Christmas Eve, with breakfast at Laduree.
Known for it's incredible macarons, it was on my list of to-do's for Paris.
One of my favorite blogs to read, Oh Happy Day, posted about a Macaron taste testing and knew when in Paris we should do the same.
We followed her map but decided to start with breakfast at Laduree.
Breakfast was delightful, although it was very busy it was a great way to start our last day in Paris.
We even had a celebrity sighting. Genevieve Gorder from HGTV sat a couple of tables over.
We loved her on Trading Spaces.
She is so pretty and so very tiny.
After breakfast we completed the shop for our "research".
The goods at hand.
We then walked over to Tuileries and noticed the Christmas market on Champs Elysees, so we decided to take a stroll.
Fun rides for the kids.
Food for those with a big stomach.
And lots of little shops
Half way through our stroll we walked over to see this beauty one last time.
We sat and drank some beer to take it all in, hey when on vacation.
Then walked the rest of the Christmas market.
We retraced our steps for a couple of gifts and then decided on an early lunch.
For the hubby.
It was such a great way to end our trip.
Oh but not yet.
We took the Eurostar back to London that night.
Picked up a bottle of champagne at the Eurostar terminal
And at Midnight we toasted to the birth of Jesus.
Paris macaron style.
The competition begins.
So very beautiful
The final winner.
The next morning we were up early and on our way home.
Home on Christmas day to be with the ones we love.
Especially a certain little one.
