we rode bikes down the Champs-Elysees to the Arc de Triomphe (went to the top which has great views of the city). of course we stopped in Cartier to check out the amazing jewelry :) in the evening we hit the Louvre which is awesome to see at night ... the rhinestone necklace is a recent vintage find ($8, bargain!) and the indian headdress necklace is a new purchase from paris - love it! it's from a cute, trinkety shop called Le Petite Boutique.
on a serious note, my heart goes out to all of those severely affected by the storm. we are extremely lucky in that we made it through the storm with power, water and heat and limited damage in our neighborhood. i know others are in much worse shape, so we feel very fortunate and hope for a speedy recovery.
