Day Eight (countdown to a very Frenchie 🐾 🎄 Christmas!): Is it just me, or is this month FLYING by?! Today the girls and I spent the afternoon with our beloved Janelle @myparisportraits.
We met at the Hotel de Ville Christmas market, and I was SO happy to see that the marché hasn’t changed its format since Covid. I love that it is one of the few centrally-located markets that allow dogs, featuring simple but beautiful scenery and decor, local maker stands, and delicious food.
I enjoy the famous Tuileries marché Noël, but I find it overwhelming in its carnival-like atmosphere, jam-packed with people elbowing for space amid the children’s rides and fair-food booths. The HDV marché is simple, calming, yet festive.
I quietly admired Janelle as she worked her camera 📷 magic today. @myparisportraits has grown a lot even since I first met her, and she continues to develop her successful business. I am so proud of her. I also love our ever-evolving friendship, as we both work hard on supporting each other personally and professionally. 🥰
After a hot chocolate and chantilly whipped cream break at the @le_saint_regis_paris, we ended up at my house to warm up with tea ☕️ and holiday music. The girls love their auntie. What a wonderful time of the year to spend with your loved ones!
In this Frenchie advent calendar, we are counting down the days to when the girls get to meet Santa 🎅 and open their presents. I have been collecting little stuffed animals, their favorite toy, and will wrap each one for them to open on Christmas day.
Bisous and big holiday hugs 🤗 from Paris, France,
Shannon, Pearl, and Rose
🇫🇷 France 🇫🇷, forever.
