I wanted to share some photos from Paris!!! I am so happy the trip is over ONLY because I was stressing beforehand wanting everything to go according to plan – and it did, yay!!!! So I am really really happy. Trips with just our family take a lot of planning so a trip with 11 people took even more, but so worth it! When Tessa sent me these pictures I was giddy the entire night – like couldn’t even stop smiling. This was such a magical trip and I am so happy for all of the fun moments captured. We were all standing around and didn’t realize the time and all the sudden the tower started sparkling!!! We did a tutorial for this hairstyle I am wearing on our Barefoot Blonde Hair insta if you want to check it out.

Seeing the Eiffel Tower sparkle at night is just always amazing. It never gets old and I could watch it 100 times and still just be in awe! If you haven’t experienced it yet, definitely add it to your bucket list. This time we were here it started at 9pm and it lasts 5 minutes and then lights up every hour on the hour until midnight. But last time we were there it didn’t start til 10pm so I don’t know if there is a schedule online you could look up before?! Any Parisians want to give some advice on that!?

Today we biked 22 miles around Lake Annecy! We ended at a beach and had lunch, played at the playground, and swam in the lake. On the way home the kids fell asleep on each other and it was so cute. The thing I have especially loved about being here is eating out with the family! We don’t eat out much usually and I forgot how much I love the whole experience of sitting down with the family and chatting and trying new foods. It is nice that they are getting to ages where it is manageable at restaurants too because there was a time when I always had like 10 activities and a back up ipad just in case.

Okay I will leave you with one more update! We got our first office in Arizona and outgrew it almost instantly. (PS we rented from a complex that my sis and her husband own and rent out to companies – it is so nice!!! If you want to check it out, you can find their contact info here.) Anyways, while we loved that office we needed more space so we found an amazing space that we are fixing up and revamping — its going to be sooo killer you guys!!! I really cannot wait to show you. It is really big so kind of overwhelming me in terms of decorating and filling it – but so exciting I just can’t wait to get moved in!

I will give some more updates later!!! xoxoxo

  5. Hey Amber !
    The Eiffel tower sparkles at dusk, so depending on the season the sparkle could begin at 8 PM or 10 PM until 1AM during winter and 2 AM during summer.

  23. I LOVE Paris. Went there when I was in high school – haven’t been back since but would LOVE to go back some time.

  24. Amber, these pics are so incredibly gorgeous! You look like a princess out of a fairy tale 😍. I hope that sometimes you will visit my country, too. It’s small but people say that Budapest is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. 😉
    Anyways, please please make a tutorial on how you blend the extensions into your shorter hair without curling it! I can make the back part but I have problems with the front pieces, it always shows through. 🙁 Thanks!
    XOXO, Klára

  25. OMG I Love your pictures! They look just amazing. Seems like u guys enjoyed Paris to the fullest! 🙂


  26. Hello Amber,
    The Eiffel Tower sparkles from the moment the lightning of the tower is on until 1am, and the 1am one is particularly amazing because the lightning of the tower is off and you only see the sparkles.
    It did not sparkle at 9pm probably because the lightning was not on yet. It is automatic and is triggered by sensors.
    I hope it was usefull.
    By the way, I live in Paris and I think your pictures are stunning.

  27. Omg! Congratulations on outgrowing your office, I can only imagine how happy and proud you must be of yourself and your blog!! 😄 Keep it up!

    Ps. Your family is sooo cute! My kids are also 18 months apart and It’s the best!

  28. AMBER!! This trip looks dreamy! Every picture is amazing… I’m obsessed

  29. I studied abroad in Paris, and one of the best parts was when the Eiffel Tower lit up! Just stunning! These pics look so gorgeous– I can’t wait to see the rest. So exciting for you and the fam!

  30. These photos are so gorgeous, I actually got chills. Lol!
