Honestly, yes, I'd strongly suggest a single loop in your case, and the order you have listed will work nicely. The most important thing is to have the reservoir before the pump, and arrange things so that gravity will feed the pump. Doing this will make setup and bleeding the system a whole lot easier.

Parallel loops is HUGE can of worms, because you have to contend with uneven pressure curves, and almost invariably, you wind up sending most of the flow down the path that benefits the least from it. Furthermore, once you crunch the numbers, in the rare event that there's any benefit at all, it can be measured in tenths of degree or less.
