One of the most beautiful spaces we visited in Paris was the Jardin du Luxembourg. The garden is located in the 6th arrondissement and was created in 1612 by Marie de'Medici. Today the French Senate meets in the Luxembourg Palace, which is located in the garden space. My mom and I loved the tree-lined promenades, flowerbeds, and fountains. I cannot wait to return to this space during my next adventure in Paris!

After a week of surprises, celebration, and cake my thirtieth birthday is finally here. I experienced a variety of emotions leading up to this day, ranging from excitement to pure panic. But today more than anything I feel so incredibly grateful. I am fortunate enough to have the most loving and supportive friends and family. I cannot wait to enter what I have heard is the best decade with them all by my side. Bring it on 30's, I am so excited to see what you have in store!
On a fun note, my friend Allison sent me this a few days before my birthday. I especially loved the graph comparing my consumption of Hot Pockets and my facility with a corkscrew.
After visiting the flower market one afternoon we crossed the Pont-Marie to Île Saint-Louis. We loved the gelato at Berthillon. The pear and rhubarb flavors were absolutely amazing!
