day in lyon visiting friends

The Grand Café: our fave place for coffee in Lyon.
Love the kids learning to ride in the city at such a young age!
A super amazing shop window. The whole store is PACKED floor to ceiling with stuff, but it’s amazingly organized and curated!
In Place Bellecour with the wonderful Klopp family. They live just around the corner from this square, which is the largest clear square in all of Europe.

I love that these little bitty stores like this hardware store exist in such a large and bustling city center!

bike ride with curtis & jay

Out on a bike ride in the hills & hamlets surrounding Cluny. If I had to live in a small town in France (larger than a village but smaller than a real town), I would so pick Cluny. If the church was still standing, Cluny would probably be one of the most famous places in France, alas, that wasn’t to be it’s destiny. Now it’s just a really nice little town with a very interesting history.
Quite possibly the cutest cottage ever…

(A reminder that things weren’t always as quaint and idyllic as they seem right now)
