The most wonderful time of the year...

Under the beautiful stained glass dome
at the world's famous Galeries Lafayette department store...
.
...there I was, standing in awe!
. 
What a humongous & glorioussssss...Christmas tree! 
~must be at least 80 feet tall!!
.
Outside was equally quite magical as well!
Made me want to do the "falalalala-lala-lala..." moment!!!
.
" Season's Greetings from Paris Everyone! "
Have you done your Christmas Shopping yet?
I'm going to do more last minute shopping before leaving this beautiful City of Lights.
errr... just hope that I still have enough space in my luggage.
Shall do all the necessary 'squoooze-squeeze-squeeze' the luggage action for sure! 

~XOXO*
