Paris: Walking in a Winter Wonderland

Over the past few weeks, Paris has transformed into a veritable winter wonderland. There’s a certain magic in the air that floats among the millions of fairy lights, sparkles and ornaments sprinkled across the city. A touch of holiday warmth has swept in to make Paris’ drab December skies seem a little less foreboding.

Late Sunday afternoon, my husband and I set out to explore the merriment, and were left wide-eyed and mystified with what we found on two of the world's most beautiful streets: the Champs-Elysées and Avenue Montaigne.
