Rue St. Paul
Though we've been here for three weeks, I just got around to snapping more detailed photos of the apartment we're renting.
It's old, beautiful, and is just the type of Paris apartment I've always wanted to live in. It's small, which is challenging at times with two toddler boys, but the exposed wood, courtyard, and huge windows more than make up for any size-related dilemmas.
I feel lucky that I get to spend a few months here, but there's a big part of me that wishes it was mine. Sigh ...

Three: A view of the steps from the courtyard
Four: The steps that lead to the apartment
Five: View from the living room looking into the dining room/kitchen (the exposed wood is everywhere!)
Six: View of Rue St. Paul from the window. The Seine is at the end of the street.
Seven: The living room at night (pssst Courtney and Amy, that's a copy of Real Simple on the coffee table)
