I expected to have a raucous night on the town last night--it was the first Saturday of Spring, after all--and I even freshened up after my boat ride on the Seine and headed out to a bar at 12:30 AM. I haven't gone out that late since my 20s. I went to check out a spot that a friend recommended, but when I walked by--pretending that I wasn't interested in going into this bar whatsoever--all the lights were on and only a couple people were sitting at the bar. PLANS THWARTED. Oh, well. I secretly just wanted to go to bed anyway but felt like I needed a good story to tell.
Here's the story: I woke up earlier today and got out of the house by noon. THAT IS ACTUAL NEWS, considering how late I've gotten up the last week.
First stop, juice from Wild and The Moon, as always. Then I walked around the city, as it was buzzing with the energy of Spring. It got up to almost 80° today, flowers were blooming, and people were basking in the sun.
Around 2 PM, I planted myself at Café Pinson, and got the daily brunch special: Soft eggs, potatoes, roasted cauliflower, hot chocolate, and some gluten-free Madelines and granola for dessert. I spent a few hours there working on my newsletter and promotions for the webinar on the 30-day cleanse I'm doing in Budapest.

Around 5:30 PM, I met with a woman who is a friend of one of my LA business partners. She was curious to learn about oils, so we chatted and oiled up for an hour. Then I dropped my heavy stuff off at the flat to make my way over to Montemartre, as I planned to watch the sunset from Sacre Coeur.
Had a bite to eat at Le Bon Bock first, and a lovely chanteuse serenaded us. The atmosphere was stellar: the oldest restaurant in Paris, and you could feel the history. At 8:45, having already missed the Sunset, I ran up the steps to the basilica with a full belly in tow. I managed to capture the magic of the setting sun's afterglow along with the budding full moon's glory. Feeling overwhelmed by smoke and aggressive street vendors, I didn't stay long. Even though I had 2 coaching sessions left to do, I decided to walk the 50 minutes home to burn off some calories and enjoy the last moments of this most perfect spring day. Up next, Champs Elysees and the Eiffel Tower on my last day here!
