oh, happy christmas!!

Photobucket
Today was the loveliest French-infused Christmas Day. I watched Elf in bed until noon before Grams and I bundled up and walked through the neighbourhood, salted caramel latte in hand. The streets were bustling with Parisians, grabbing fresh baguettes for their feast. We window shopped drooling over the cheese in the fromagerie, smelling the fresh flowers that lined the streets and eyeing a dessert roll that we would consume later that evening. We had brunch at Auntie Paul's apartment {pancakes and candied rose-petal infused champagne} and opened our stocking stuffers before strolling over to Kim's apartment later this evening. The Eiffel Tower lit up the night's sky on our entire walk across the river. We made one final stop at a bakery to pick up our own fresh baguette to compliment our fish & curried prawns dinner. We exchanged small gifts + laughed until it was no longer officially Christmas before we made the walk back over the bridge and played four rounds of skip-bo... in which I was declared the winner!! Oh, Happy Christmas!
