I Love Paris In The Springtime

There's nothing like living in Paris in the springtime.

The city is at its most beautiful. The minute the sun comes out the café sidewalks are crowded with chic Parisians soaking up the rays while sipping a Perrier and reading Le Monde.

Big Cheese loves spring in Paris because the women practically walk around naked (in a classy way -- this is Paris, after all) at the first sunbeam.

I love Paris in the springtime for two very important reasons - because I can start wearing my white jeans again and, best of all, flirting season is officially declared open!

Eh oui, there's nothing like spring in Paris to put the pep in your step. Take what happened to me the other day as an example.

Armed with my favorite accessories - my wedding ring, sunglasses, and a very cool Chloé bag, I was out running errands sans the French Fries. As I walked passed the elegant café up the street - lightning struck.

I was frozen in place as sparks went flying, staring back at the very handsome monsieur who was devouring me with his eyes. We stared at each other for what felt like an eternity.

Then his eyes moved on to examine my left ring finger for evidence of a man in my life. Monsieur obviously missed the post pregnancy muffin top I had hiding under my shirt because he continued to eat me for lunch! It took a few more seconds to register who monsieur was - France's equivalent to American Idol's Simon Cowell.



Merci André Manoukian for making La Mom feel like La Hot Mom! Leave it to French men, Paris, springtime, and flirting to make you feel like a million euros!

Does flirting include sitting down to have lunch together? Pull up a chair and enjoy yourselves!

Ooooo la, la, La Mom!
I want to be eaten alive by a delicious hunk of man meat, too!
FYI, I JUST purchased a new pair of white, skinny jeans made exclusively for NM by 7 jeans. They are muh Ta-Die-Forrr spring and summer staple! They are also my inspiration to boycott queso dip!

Monkey Girl said...

Okay,

Literally you are going to give me a heart attack.

Cool site. I'm a newby, temporary, expat mom. If I weren't sitting across the street from the Post, on someones's stoop, I would stay longer to browse. I'll be back.

StyleSpy said...

I have been there in the summer, fall, and winter, but never the spring, and your post has made me desperate to remedy that. But I'd better work on my flirting chops before I do!

Woohoo! What a fabulous way to start off the season La Mom!

Kelli said...

Ohhhhh yes, the French {men} have a very, very special way of doing this! I am sure it felt great to be devoured!
Was Big Cheese jealous?

Pure Poser said...

So you had a french simon cowell eye humping you? Ah, this why I love France.

You must be bacon, don't worry about no muffin top! It's all in your head! x

Okay, your experience with Paris in the Springtime is radically different than mine! We went over spring break one year expecting "April in Paris/Chestnuts in Blossom" and what we got was cold, cold rain. But even so, Paris was amazing and I have wanted to return ever since.

Congrats on the fun ogle. That does wonders for the ol' ego!

Mommy In Pink said...

Oooh la la, How great is that?
