Take a break and admire the stunning architecture in Montmartre
Visit Angelina’s new shop location on Rue du Bac.
Have a belated birthday celebration luncheon at Angelina’s on Rue du Rivoli, followed by their famous hot chocolate and dessert (even if you only take three bites because you are on a no-sugar diet and hubby has to eat his dessert AND yours!)
Take a long walk in the cool, grey afternoon to your favorite park in Paris – Jardin du Palais Royal

Have a lovely dinner of poached salmon at a lively bistro, head back to the apartment and shake off jet lag long enough to post on your blog, Twitter, FB, Instagram, email family and collapse in joyful contentment.

Wonderful, tiny, brocante shop. I bought a great set of canisters for props and a little something for my Mom.
More macarons! Sorry!
Hello, friends! Thank you for all your sweet comments on this series. It’s much more fun to share them with you as they are happening, so to speak. :) Here is another selection, from many taken in the last 24 hours. Something very special planned for tomorrow which I hope you’ll love. See you then!
