Checked in at swanky, boutique-y Hotel Modera
(Side note: Because we are prone to traveling misadventures, even in the city six miles from our house, we walked completely around the block to find the hotel lobby; what we thought was an entrance turned out to be the still-under-construction restaurant - imagine my minor freakout thinking the hotel I thought I'd booked ON VALENTINE'S DAY was not actually open yet)
Yes, I kind of was in the actual street
but luckily did not get hit by this cab
These are Benson Bubblers and never fail
to refresh and/or amuse
Lunch at Pastini, where we indulged in our weird pasttime
of reading personal ads aloud to each other
The tattoo comes out for date night
[Insert wine tasting & delightful French film here]
Welcome to Veritable Quandary!
Shirt & shoes required for everyone not attached to the wall
Bacon-wrapped, cheese & almond stuffed date, ahoy!
This chandelier made me happy[er]
The morning after
(This throw made me giddy every time I touched it -
a delectable fake fur offered by our hotel as an 'amenity'
for a mere $200; alas I did not bring it home)
Au revoir, mis amis.
