I'm Dreaming About...

I have a city dear to my heart.  Am I a city person? No. But this is no ordinary city, this city is pure perfection. This city is Paris.  This first time I had the opportunity to travel to Paris I was 11.  I was with my family traveling.  It was the most amazing family vacation.  (Don't get me wrong we are not wealthy people, this was years in the making for my parents) I remember vividly being in the city.  It was July and the bright colors of the land/city scape was captivating.  At one point my mom and I decided not to travel to the Notre Dame with the rest of our we sat by ourselves in a park.  We watched the Parisians stroll and she asked me if I'd ever want to live here and I said yes!

10 years later this city called me back.  I again had the amazing opportunity to study abroad in neighboring (sort of...not really) London.  And on my break I returned to pretty Paris.  Paris in February is very different...subtle pastels, creamy colored old buildings with blue roofs.  Very cold, but still so alive.  I don't know what it is about Paris, to me it's the place where fairy tales still exist.  The people are not super friendly but they are super relaxed, there is an easiness about their culture. If you wish to blend in to your setting when you travel, the Parisian culture is perfect for you. I will never forget my experiences in Paris.  I can't wait to take my little girl or girls someday...Paris is for little girls who believe in happily ever after!    


  1. Been there and I agree... it is a spectacular city. Versailles is, for me, the place of fairy tales! Loved it!!
