What I’ve loved this week…
Old time watering holes like Gordon’s Wine Bar in London and Harry’s New York Bar in Paris. Places that transport you and make think if only these walls could talk.. Now if only those walls wouldn’t fall into your wine, but I guess that is the accepted hazard of drinking in a wine cellar 😉
Market stalls full of fresh produce, cheese, fish, and everything in between. Whether the more formal markets like Rue Mouffetard, Paris and Borough Market, London or the small collect of stalls along the boulevards in Paris all were offering up fresh, vibrant food to passersby. I couldn’t help but day-dream how wonderful that would be not to be reliant on a large grocery day to day.

Our day trip to Reims. Aside from the champagne houses, with three UNESCO World Heritage sites this small city is not to be missed! The gothic cathedral is stunning. No description can fully capture the imposing nature of this architectural gem.
Magic in the Moonlight. This latest Woody Allen film will just leave you happy. It was bright, delightful, and beautifully filmed. If you enjoy Allen’s movie this one will not disappoint.
What I’ve been drinking this week…
Yikes so many good options to choose from! My favorites were probably more about where and who I was drinking it with. The standouts were Mumm 2006 Vintage we tasted on our tour, Champagne Robert Desbrosse Brut Vintage we shared with our friends upon arriving in London, or the 2010 Chateau Tour Prignac, Medoc on our first night in Paris at a small family run restaurant in the 5th arr.

What Coco & Tom have loved this week…
It was Bark Box week in our house – everyone’s favorite! Nice treat (literally) for them to come home to 🙂 They are loving Bakers’ Best Maple Glazed Salmon with Blueberries. Best part these treats are Canadian made. Otherwise they are just exhausted from a long week of playing with new and old friends at the sitters.
What they won’t be loving is Halloween tonight… Any tips on how you manage nervous puppies and trick or treaters would be great!!
