Have you ever visited it a place that transformed the way that you see beauty and the world? I have been lucky to have a few experiences like that Paris, of course, but also Oia, Santorini (those white buildings against that indigo Aegean Sea). Another place that I still talk and dream about is the Gardens of Versailles, the sprawling grounds created by the Sun King, Louise XIV, so much so that I even wrote my final major Art History paper on the subject before graduating from college. I am enamored by the quest for perfection that was achieved in the gardens - the perfectly sculpted hedges, the glistening statues, the reflecting pools. Located just a short train ride from Paris, the gardens and the chateau are so immense and beautiful it is almost too much to absorb. I hope that you have enjoyed this little bit of Paris that I shared here this week, I hope that my passion and down-right love for this city has inspired you to either visit or to return. And as Audrey Hepburn said "Paris is always a good idea" - I couldn't agree more. Bon Weekend!
