Postcards From Abroad…The Ritz Hotel

 

Le Ritz, c’est ma maison”

-COCO CHANEL

 

Hello…

 

 

 

Today Joe and I are celebrating our 15twedding anniversary!

 

 

 

 

 

 

and just arrived at our big destination…

 

 

The Ritz Hotel in Paris, France…More

 

 

 we had been planning this trip for quite some time…15 years

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

as you might imagine…we were so excited…

 

 

From the moment we arrived we were overwhelmed with the service…elegance…and beauty of the hotel.

 

 

 

 

As we waited for our lunch reservations we were invited to tour the hotel by a staff member…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After the tour we were seated out in the garden in a private area for lunch.

 

 

 

 

 

 

It was a perfect day in Paris and the garden was breathtakingly beautiful.😘

 

 

Joe ordered a cheese plate…

 

 

I ordered lobster rolls…

 

 

and we shared a carmelized slice of apple pie for dessert.

 

 

After a leisurely lunch our guide whose name was Abdul arrived to take us to our suite.

 

 

As we entered the room I was taken aback by the view from the entry…

 

 

floor to ceiling glass doors overlooking Paris…

 

 

I noticed a bouquet of long stem white roses from Joe💋

 

 

The room was beyond anything I could have imagined…in luxury…elegance…refinement…perfection. Being overwhelmed with Joy all I could do was stand there and weep.  Abdul said he had to leave because he was afraid that he too might begin to cry.

 

 

This was a moment that will never be forgotten. On this day our 15th wedding anniversary we made it to the Ritz and were in the lap of luxury.

 

 

 

 

 

 

That being said we luxuriated…

 

 

in everything…

 

 

sitting outside on the balcony over looking the city…

 

 

ordering room service.

 

 

We ended our day by slipping in a nightcap at The Bar Hemingway.

 

 

It was exceptional…

 

 

We vowed to one day return…

to be continued…

 

Now join me for a mini tour of our suite….
