My husband, Daniel, and I were celebrating our fifth wedding anniversary. Throughout our marriage, we had taken smaller trips, quick little getaways. We decided we needed to go bigger for our fifth anniversary.
We had arrived at our hotel midmorning. After a quick trip to our room to drop off our bags, freshen up a bit, and exclaim over the swanky amenities, we hit the cobblestone walkways to explore this beautiful area. We wanted to see it all and we wanted to see it now!
“Where should we head first, Penny? Daniel asked.
“To the Arc de Triomphe,” I decided. “The one thing I ask is that we save the Eiffel Tower for night time. I want to be able to see the city lit up at night.”
“That sounds perfect to me,” Daniel replied.
From the Arc de Triomphe, our sightseeing around Paris took us here, there, and everywhere. Each landmark seemed to be more wonderful than the last. I even got to do a little shopping in some of the boutiques we came across. As the sun set over the city, we headed to the Eiffel Tower.
Once we reached the top of the Eiffel Tower, hand in hand, Daniel and I looked out over Paris.
“This has been the perfect day,” I said with a sigh.
“Yes, it has,” Daniel agreed. “What do you say we head back to the hotel? We’ve got a lot more of the Vegas strip to check out tomorrow.”
