Oh it must be nice. Leave the lovely Los Angeles area for a few months to spend time in the most beautiful city of the world during the crisp winter. Well that is exactly what my dear mom is doing right now. My sister DS in Paris right now visiting her. They are staying at beautiful apartment in the 6th arrondissement that has windows on every side, high ceilings, wonderful crown molding and architectural detail and chevron laid wood floors. Love the decor in this lovely space. Nice interior design with a mix of classic and modern furniture.
I saw glimpse of my mom in a photo that DS sent…she looks so happy whenever she is in Paris. This space suits her. Sis Dis called this morning…she is just there a day and is enjoying herself…this morning with a wonderful pain au chocolate and coffee. They will go to museums, concerts and theater there. Sounds delightful.
Wintering is defined as “to spend in the winter”. To me, wintering or summering in some fantastic location means you are staying longer than just a week long vacation…you are staying for weeks and even months in a place that you make a second home. A luxury really. Mom loves Paris and is a French professor and has her Ph.D in French literature so it makes sense that she of all people would winter there! She spends good deal of time there every year…and stays in wonderful apartments…but this one seems to have it all!
Yesterday on the phone, my mom said that when she arrived in January…Paris was particularly beautiful and sparkling with all of the left over holiday lights. Must get to Paris in January some time.
Cool thing about this apartment is that mom hopes to be in this apartment over the summer too…note to self, must put in for some vacation time at work so I can spend a bit of time with mom there.
Anyhooo…here is a glimpse of my mother’s winter apartment (and perhaps summer too)!
Very simply put…#thegoodlife!
P.S. Everyone is traveling to places I love! TE is in NYC for work…he left early yesterday morning. He is staying at our favorite hotel. Prior to TE, I stayed at this hotel several times when I was in NYC on business…then as it turns out it has been his hotel of choice for years too. We have only stayed there once together…and we both love it. Follow me on COCOCOZY Instagram @cococozy to find out which NYC hotel I covet.
