Pink in Paris!

Beverly of How Sweet the Sound is hosting Pink Saturday. Please visit her for lots of pinkness this week!

I hope all of you are enjoying the 4th. We are relaxing at home and still recovering from our trip to Europe and the Mediterranean.

While on our trip, I spotted lots of pink in Paris that I want to share with you today! No matter where you go, it seems that pink stands out and makes the surroundings even prettier! And Paris was full of pink that begged to be photographed. Here are some of my favorite pink shots.

Cosmetic super store! I couldn’t believe the choices in here!

Roses at a French flower market 


 Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel, in the Tuileries gardens near the Louvre-note the pinkish marble columns

One of our tour guides told us that Paris is the most visited city in the world! I have to say I can see why! But there is still no place like the USA!!!

Happy July 4th!
