Liesbet | Paris is always a good idea

When my mom suggested to take a few days off sans kids and said ; ‘how about Paris?’ my sister and I did not hesitate very long. Actually, hesitating was out of the question! ‘When do we leave?’, we squealed and arrangements were made. Of course, departing from the littles is not fun and we miss them all the time, but a few days of pure self-centered sleeping, eating, shopping and coffeedrinking in Paris-of all places!- surely clears the mind and soothes the soul! We stayed in a cozy hotel named Paradis. Most of our time was spent in the famous quartier Le Marais, strolling through the cozy little streets. On our last day, we met for drinks with the enchanting Leia from Diapers and Milk. She stole our hearts with her gorgeous appearance and bubbly personality. Paris, à bientôt!

Toen mijn moeder voorstelde om er enkele daagjes ‘tussenuit’ te gaan, zonder kleintjes, en in dezelfde zin ‘Parijs’ vermeldde, moesten mijn zus en ik niet veel langer nadenken. We zetten ons achter onze computer en alles was meteen geregeld! Natuurlijk is het niet fijn om de kindjes achter te laten, want we missen ze elke dag en elk moment van de dag. Maar een paar dagen pure ‘rust’, m.a.w. rustig slapen, eten, shoppen en cafeetjes doen in Parijs- PARIJS!- is zeker goed voor lichaam en geest van deze mama’s! We verbleven in een gezellig hotelletje: Paradis. Het merendeel van onze tijd spendeerden we in de beroemde wijk ‘Le Marais’, kuierend door de gezellige straatjes. Op onze laatste dag hadden we afgesproken met de stralende Leia van Diapers and Milk. Door haar mooie verschijning en vrolijke persoonlijkheid stal ze ons hart. Parijs, tot snel!
