Paris On My Mind

You know from this post that I have Europe on my mind, but I particularly have a taste for France, especially Paris. As many of you might have read before, I spent a wonderful amount of time in France. I was lucky enough to live in Paris for almost half a year in college, in addition to a month while I was in high school.  Paris means so much more to me than some sort of stunning European city - for me Paris means freedom and possibility.  I set off to discover the city twice years ago and for me it mean embarking on an adventure by myself not knowing anyone in a foreign city.  As the years go by (it has been far too long) I never want to loose what Paris symbolizes to me. I actually always wanted to work in France at some point and who knows where the roads might lead me (I am lucky to work for a company that has it's main headquarters in Paris).  I never want to become scared of the unknown or let me dreams falls to the wayside, in fact, I take pride in embracing it.  So many people have that dream of wandering to a foreign land and fortunately these days they blog about it.  I have recently fallen in love with a few that are dedicated to the City of Light, if you click, I am sure that you will also.  One of my favorites is Paris in Four Months - I literally spent an entire afternoon going through Carin's blog.  She not only features stunning photography from around the city, but she also features her favorite desserts and her fashion week snapshots (she shoots for Elle Sweden). Below are just a few of her stunning photographs that really transported me for a day back to one of my favorite places in the world.



Here are just a few more blogs dedicated to Paris and all of it's beauty.

  11. You have Paris on the mind today and I have London on my mind. Oh Paris, I haven't been since high school but I just remember being in such awe of how beautiful it is. I would love to go back. Or just go on a fun Euro trip.
