Mademoiselle Paloma Goes To Paris

Happy Friday! Isn't January just flying by? Less than two weeks and I'm off to Paris! When not mentally packing my suitcase, I'm indulging in favorite memories of past trips. If you've been following along for awhile you may remember a post about my adventures there with a friend of the smaller set - Mademoiselle Penelope when she was just two.


She's a very grown up girl of almost 11 now, and returned to Paris last summer with little sister Paloma, who is three, in tow. Looks like they could advise me on a few things I should do and see during my trip!

What do you think of their sight-seeing highlights?

Have you been to Paris with a little one? They help you see an entirely different city, I think.

Bon weekend tout le mond! XO

  1. Hooray! I am finally back into the land of I Dream Of only to find these crazily charming photos of Penelope and Paloma!! Bisous to these two beauties as well as to their equally stunning Maman...
    And to you too of course. Only two weeks before you go? Oh, how I wish that I could train up to see you this trip, my friend.

    1. Oh Heather, how I wish you could pop on the train, too! Would love to see you. But, as I've said, I highly doubt this will be my last trip to La Belle France. In fact, a friend of mine and I were just discussing spending her milestone bday in 2016 in St. Remy. How wonderful would that be?

      The Diaz family send bisous and hugs right back to you as do I! XOXO

  2. Jeanne,
    I feel like for the last whirlwind of 20 years that my life has benefited from the ability to have my children to see things and share that with me as their Mom. Our sons will soon be "21" and I am so glad we traveled with them to Europe and then a bit in the States. My son was able to travel to Africa and loved that. I think seeing the world at any age opens one's eyes to dream.

    Those two, Penelope and Paloma are "tres" charming!
    Safe and happy travels and I promise to surprise you with something very special upon your return. Love to hand deliver....Maybe we can work that out. That would be so much fun!!!

    1. Thanks Patricia. It is quite hard to believe that your twins will be 21! What wonderful adventures you've blessed them with.

      Thanks for the well-wishes for my upcoming travels! A surprise? For me? Sounds lovely! But even lovelier would be a hand delivery - can't believe it's been 3 years exactly since we last met up!

      Enjoy your weekend! XOXO

  3. They are so darling! Lucky you getting to go back....I feel like I am "due" for a trip there myself. We were there when my son was younger and agree, you do things you might not normally do (like going to an Italian restaurant in Paris THREE nights in a row) lol but it was really good!
    I loved seeing the city through his eyes....enjoy your weekend!

    1. Hi Tina! You know they say Paris is always a good idea, and I always, always feel like I'm overdue for a trip there! How fabulous would it be if we could arrange a blogger meet-up there?

      What fun memories of travels with your son, Italian food and all!

      Happy weekend! XOXO

  4. What a darling composition! I travelled to Paris with 2 other moms and our kids a couple of times, I have great shots of them playing ring-around-the-rosy with the Eifel Tower in the background. They gave me the courage to finally go to the top of the Tower! Have a great trip Jeanne!

    1. Emily that sounds like so much fun and a wonderful memory- Actually my first trip to the top of the Eiffel Tower was with Miss Penelope (I'm dreadfully afraid of heights). Thanks for the well wishes and let's pretend were in Paris and grab an aperitif in Madison Valley when I get back. XOXO

  5. So cute and they have good taste. I've spotted some of my favourite places. I especially like to sit people-watching at Les Deux Magots.
    Happy New Year to you!

    1. Deux Magots is a favorite of mine, too! You can bet I'll be sipping a hot chocolate there at some point during my trip! Happy New Year to you, as well! XOXO

  10. Jeannie-
    You are so fortunate to be traveling to Paris again.
    We live our dreams through your visits!
    Oh to be staring up at one of those painting, or to own one of the carousel horses.
    Have a wonderful time, and don't forget to take many pictures.
    Teresa

  11. What an adorable post, Jeannie! Penelope and Paloma (LOVE the names!) are precious and how delightful to see Paris through the eyes of a little girl. I first went with my daughter when she was 16 - not quite the same, but it is definitely a wonderful memory.
    I can't wait to hear more about your Paris trip!! Have a good rest of the weekend! xoxo

  12. Oh how lovely, have you ever been to Monte Carlo heading there in 8 weeks. and I never have been to Paris either! That will be my 50 Birthday trip! I cannot wait to see the posts after this trip and will jot down all your recommendations!! Sounds fantastic!

  13. Hi Jeanne,
    So sorry I missed this post before! I am SO excited for your trip to Paris!!!! I have friends that took their 4 children over New Years! She described the scene of them banging pots and pans off their balcony, horns blaring and a view of the Louvre in their background. Dreamy!!!

    So, as you may know, we took our two boys to Paris when they were just 5 and 8. Oh, what a grand time we had!!! Seeing the Louvre through the eyes of their "scavenger hunt" tour by Paris Muse was a highlight. As was seeing them bouncing on the in-ground trampolines in the Tuilleries! Hot chocolate at Angelina's. The list goes on and on. So whether you are 7 or 70 or somewhere in between, Paris extends its magic to all.

    I'll be following along on your travels. Wishing I was there!
    xoxo Elizabeth
