The beginning of the New Year has been very busy here at Gullringstorp and at Li’l Sis Goat Milk Soap. After all the fun of the holidays, it is time to set down some plans for the new year and to start putting those plans into action. I have been trying to get up to date with my blog after the holiday absence. I still have much to share about the goings on in my stable.
Before it’s too late, I would like to share a bit of our annual Holiday trip to Paris. This is our 11th year, just my daughter and I we stay at the same family run hotel, visit our favorite restaurants , book stores, churches and museums. We have been lucky to be able to attend wonderful ballet while in Paris for the week before Christmas.
I would like to share some Paris moments with you:

Café Rostand our favorite place for a late lunch or early dinner. Fantastic food and if you are fortunate, exciting conversation with a neighbor at the next table.
French Onion soup
Tarte aux Framboises a lovely and delicious end to a fantastic meal
A fun thing in Paris is seeing well behaved dogs sitting with their owners in restaurants. What’s even better is to be able to meet and get to know the cat or dog whoes home is the shop or restaurant. This is the restaurant cat at Cafè Rostand
This little kitty was so sweet and curious. She was a delight to watch.
Just look at that cute face! What a view as you enjoy your meal.
Macaroons at the famous Ladurée in Paris. After years of enjoying the window and displays, we went in and bought some for the very first time. Wow!!
A beautiful box to hold beautiful treats
A chocolate macaroon… just delightfully delicious…
