Too much fun and too much sugar!

I started the rainy, windy day by meeting Leesa, Sam and Sarah at the metro and then we headed over to a cupcake boutique. Cupcakes are not a common here in France and I've never seen them at boulangeries (bakeries). They are denser and not as moist as the ones that I'm used to back in the US. I had the lemon cupcake and the icing was sooooo good!

Leesa and I then headed over to the Marais. The rain had stopped so we had a wonderful time window shopping...well, we did a little more than window shopping...

Leesa knew a great place for coffee - Le Loir dans la Théière (the dormouse in the teapot).

So, we stopped for coffee and I just couldn't resist the meringue. I was definitely craving lemon today! Leesa had the Swiss chard soup which was a much healthier choice and just as good.
