Reasons to visit Paris's Sacré-Coeur and Montmartre
It had been a while since my husband and I had been to Montmartre so last week we decided to pay it a visit. We had good reasons. Let's face it, Sacré-Coeur is stunning.
And the Metro station we stop at is one of the old-fashioned ones, always worth a photo.
Montmartre's steps are a good way to work off a morning croissant!
It's always interesting to see what inspires Montmartre's painters (we got there early as they were just setting up).
Then there's the view from in front of the Sacré-Coeur; you can see all of Paris!
But the BEST reason to visit Montmartre is to meet a friend. The talented Fanny from Scrap de Fanny DG and I have been 'talking' for a while now, leaving comments on each other's blogs, giving each other ideas on where to get the best craft supply prices (France is so expensive and Fanny's a pro at finding the best deals) and swapping emails, but we haven't met in real life. Fanny works in Montmartre and it was wonderful to finally have a chance to meet her. We have a lot in common—we're both from the Americas (her South, me North), we're both married to Frenchmen, and (most importantly) we love to scrap. I'm happy to say she's every bit as nice in person!
