Paris Romance

I took this picture while lying in bed. What a great site to wake up to.

Mr Romantic took me to Paris for my five-O birthday a couple of years ago. He showed me a picture of Hotel Des Saint Peres in Paris, which featured a room with a 17th century fresco painted ceiling. There is only one room at the hotel like this and Richard was wondering if I would like to stay in this romantic little spot for my birthday (are you kidding me!). The room was available for the dates we wanted :: Happy Birthday to me!

The ceiling is decorated with a 300 year old fresco painted by the Ecole de Versailles. It represents 'the virtue' and 'the goodwill' under the cherubs gaze.

The hotel features rooms that are listed as deluxe and superior - and well, then there is the over-the-top-ultimate-romantic-room we stayed in.
My honey really knows how to ease the pinch of big birthday numbers. Thanks Honey.
