stunning stained glass.

During our first full day in paris we headed over to Sainte-Chapelle, the tiny chapel on the Île de la Cité near the Notre Dame. We arrived fairly early and avoided a long line. 
Once we got inside h went crazy with the camera - the lower chapel was ornate and full of rich blues and gorgeous patterns. I told him to be prepared, it just gets better... 
Once we got up to the main floor he let out a DANNNNNNG! he was stunned by the beauty of the stained glass and the amount of it! This was my second visit to Sainte-Chapelle but it was still stunning and I found myself stopping to take it all in.
If you are ever in Paris and have the opportunity to visit Sainte-Chapelle, do it. It's a magical place and one of my favorite places!
