I simply cannot believe that in two weeks, Mark and I will be strolling down the Rue du Rivoli in Paris. It is going to be a dream come true!!
We have been finalizing a few last minute details which we could not have done without the help of the amazing staff at the Hotel des Grands Hommes. From the moment we emailed them with our interest of staying at their charming hotel near the Pantheon, they have been warm and friendly.
They have sweetly accomodated our request for a room with a balcony.
I envision having coffee and croissants on the balcony every morning.
They have also assisted in getting us reservations for dinner at Josephine "Chez Dumonet" and at La Truffiere for our final meal in Paris. And they have never complained when the only French I can write is Bonjour, Au Revoir, and Merci Beaucoup.

And since we aren't staying at the Hotel Plaza Athenee (where Carrie Bradshaw lived in SATC), we decided our first lunch in Paris would include a Croque Monsieur from the hotel's sidewalk cafe, La Terrasse Montaigne.
Do you have any last minute recommendations for us? We'd love to add them to our must see list!
