Parisian Dreams

Last summer I fulfilled my long-time dream of traveling to Paris.  My boyfriend and I stayed in the City of Light  this past June and it was better than I had even hoped {so amazing in fact that I decided to visit again just four months later - see some of my photos here, here, here, and here}.  From the statuesque Tour Eiffel to the whimsical Musee D'Orsay to the quintessential French Bistros, we completely immersed ourselves in French culture for six amazing days.  We cruised on the Seine and saw the sun set over Notre Dame.  We enjoyed the Fete de la Musique {a music festival where the entire city becomes a concert venue} and shopped at favorites such as MerciDiptyque, Claudie Pierlot, Galeries Lafayette, and the Marche aux Fleurs.  And don't even get me started on the food - pain au chocolat, macaroons, coq au vin, croissants, baguettes, croque madames, CHEESE, and of course lots of red wine.  It was truly a dream come true and I will cherish the memories for the rest of my life.

"If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast." - Ernest Hemingway
