Chalkboards Of Paris!

Summer is here! And the school year is quickly becoming a distant memory.

 It has been quick a year. I started a new job teach video game and web design to middle schoolers! Quite an adventure it has been. I will be doing it again this coming school year.

What better way to celebrate the end of a successful school year than a trip to Paris!! Well the last day of school I left for Paris to meet the Chef, who had already been there for a week. Photobucket

The chef met me at the airport in Paris and we took the train to the hotel (much more reasonable than a taxi). When we emerged from the train station in Paris chef lead me down a cobblestone pedestrian market street and the first thing I noticed was...chalkboards!! Everywhere!!

 I snapped some pictures thinking I would only see a few. But the more we walked along the more I began to realize... Chalkboards are very Paris! Very French!

 During my week long (which was not long enough) stay I continued to snap pictures of chalkboards. I didn't take pictures of all of them, that would be thousands! Just every now and than I would take a picture of a chalkboard.

 Chalkboards were displayed with frame, without frame, painted directly on buildings, hanging on trees, at farmers markets, as garden markers...

I imagine if they banished all of the chalkboards from Paris it would definitely lose some of its charm.

If you want to add a little bit of Paris to your home (and who wouldn't want to) you can purchase a chalkboard board from Chalk it up! Here is little slideshow that I put together of Paris chalkboards that I encountered:

 I hope to be posting more pictures of my Paris trip soon! It was so amazing! I plan on returning one day...
