A Picnic and Sunset at La Tour Eiffel...












Every time I have been in France I make sure to stop by the Eiffel Tower.  I love it.. I know it is totally touristy and crazy but I love it!  It is one of my favorite things to do by far in the city.  I love to watch the sun set and see the lights come on, I guess it is the romantic girl in me but it is the best!

We brought a little picnic with us to eat before we went up to the top to watch the sun go down.  Yummy!!

We did not just have dessert but I do try and eat at least 2 types of desert each day I am there.  They are always so pretty and so good.

The view was fantastic and this time I took some extra time to take pictures of the lights below.
The little cafe on the 1st floor was redone with Tolix chairs- love it!

If you are planning on going to Paris La Tour Eiffel is always a good idea!
But be prepared it is always busy because everyone thinks it is a good idea!

Looks fabulous! Even though it is touristy, I have heard that if you go to Paris, you HAVE to do the Eiffel Tower :) Those desserts look delicious, especially the Paris Pops!

Darling Christina,
Soooo Jealous...wish we could brunch together too this weekend (however in California not 100 degree Louisiana)! Or we lived just down the street and could chat for hours about everything but nothing! ; )

Have a Fabulous weekend, you deserve it!

Christina, your photos are fantastic! I never ever get tired of seeing the Eiffel Tower, but as I am afraid of heights you will never get me to go to the top ever again!!
