Paris Afternoon

A Paris afternoon surrounded by...


love


beauty


cafes


elegance


fashion


and, of course, macarons.

This week I am doing a lot of dreaming so it would seem. I think that is a sign of wanting/needing a vacation?

I think it's also important for the soul - dreaming, that is. and the autumnal weather makes it easy to be a bit more introverted. I love the pictures you've 'dreamed up'. I'd so love to go to Paris again!

Ahhh Paris. I think the first picture with the eiffel tower is right around the corner from a fantastic restaurant called Clos Des Gourmets. They were closed the day I tried to go ... but I've heard their lavender creme brulee is really something.
