French Mademoiselle in Paris: Day 9

Bonjour!

Not to rub it in, but it was another fabulous day here in Paris.
Honestly, how can you not love Paris?

I took my mother to Boulevard Hausmann and we shopped in the same stores as I did on Day 6.
Always good to have a second opinion on things.

Parched and hungry, we sat down at Ladurée, which has a small café hidden
away between Tiffanys and Bvlgari in the Printemps' second floor.

I ordered, something I've been dying to try, the gorgeous
Saint-Honoré Rose Framboise

Yum, yum, yum.

Et puis, we went back to Le Bon Marché and La Grand Epicurie.

And since we were in the neighborhood, we went to Pierre Hermé to pick up dessert for later.

The shop is so tiny, I always need to pay attention on Rue Bonaparte,
to make sure I'm not passing it.

I bought a lemon tart, which I once baked for Paris Pastry from Pierre Hermé's book 'Desserts'.

Right next to Pierre Hermé lies the beautiful Place Saint Sulpice, which is one of
my favorite places to bench-sit in Paris.

For dinner, we headed back to my (2nd) arrondissemnt and ate on Rue Montorgueil.
