This week’s inspiration is Paris. It’s one of the most romantic cities in the world, and lately, it’s been on my mind. Day and night, I seem to dream of walking the city streets and overlooking The Seine, sitting in Ladurée eating macarons, lounging in a park reading a book, eating fresh bread with cheese and a glass of wine, kissing someone under The Eiffel Tower. No matter what I do, I can’t seem to get The City of Lights out of my head.
Paris was always a place I dreamed about, and in 2007, after graduating from college, I had my first opportunity to explore the city. As a graduation present, my incredibly generous uncle took me on a trip to visit the city I’ve imagined myself in for years. That was my first taste of the city, but since then I’ve been longing for more.
While, I don’t know when I’ll make it back to La Ville-Lumière, the ideal time for me would be to see it one day in the spring, hand in hand with someone I love. I’m not sure when that will happen, but for now, I’ll continue be inspired by the French, allowing myself to continue to dream until I’m finally able revisit.
