I thought you might like to see some highlights from my lovely day with the girls. I find Easter to be extra special here in France. The energy feels a bit like a Springtime Christmas, with all the decor, gifts, events, and activities the neighborhood churches offer. With the trees starting to leaf out and the flowers coming into bloom, it’s a beautiful time of year to visit Paris.
If you are traveling to Paris soon, you will especially enjoy my latest Paris Quarterly guide (instant access link in bio!). I have included custom itineraries and maps featuring city picnic spots, floral-theme restaurants, spring events, stunning parks, and easy day trips to the top nearby chateaus with internationally famous gardens.
I have never been the paw-rent of small dogs before. As a child and adult, I grew up around labradors and german Shorthaired pointers. It has been quite the learning curve to understand these little French bulldogs. But one of the great pleasures is their intelligence and personalities, akin to a toddler’s.
They delight in children’s activities - slides, playground equipment, stuffed toys, clothes, playing games, music, water, and bathtime. Pearl especially enjoys these things, and you can see it from the massive grin on her face while riding a carousel for the first time. I will post the whole series of photos and videos tomorrow because it’s just too darn cute.
And while others may not understand or agree with dogs being treated like children, they bring me so much joy every day, and giving them a special Easter treat was such a pleasure.
