Patisserie Stohrer while wandering through the second arrondissement in Paris. Situated on the pedestrian-only Rue Montorgueil, Stohrer is the oldest pastry shop in Paris and offers an amazing variety of delectable desserts. The ceiling and walls of the shop are just as beautiful as the pasties in the glass cases.

Notre-Dame was one of the many sights in Paris that I couldn't wait to see in person. Luckily, it was about a ten minute walk from our hotel so we were able to visit the church a few times during our stay. The first time we were there my mom and I toured the inside of the cathedral.
I was in awe of the space the second I stepped inside. The lights, arches, and rose windows were all breathtaking.
Notre-Dame is truly a work of art. I am so grateful I was able to experience it while in Paris.
Rockaway Beach has quickly become one of my favorite places in New York City, so it seemed only fitting I spend my last day of summer there with several friends from work. We had lunch at Rockaway Taco and spent several hours in the sun before the rain rolled late afternoon.
If only every weekend was a three day weekend...
*Weekend bonus: When I studied abroad in Florence back in 2005, Vivoli Gelato was one of my favorite treats. This weekend I discovered that it is sold on the sixth floor of Macy's! The riso gelato was just as delicious as I remembered. I can't wait to go back for more soon!
