Ode to Paris.

This is an Ode to Paris. I remember the first time I went to Paris in 2013 and being absolutely overwhelmed at everything I thought Paris had to be. It’s that Paris or New York – phenomenon, where your mind is so influenced by the media that actually being there can be too much or even disappointing. But at the same time I loved it immediately and I felt very at home and comfortable right away.

I was lucky to go there twice after that and I will be going one more time for a beautiful elopement. And every single time Paris wins more and more of my heart. 

Last week, during a little business trip for a photoshoot, I stood on the balcony of our hotel, looking out to the Eifel Tower (after me and my lovely assistant squeaked for five minutes at the view) and thinking: I could stay here.

 

Paris, I love you.

I love your many markets.

I love hearing your people speak french, because it sounds like beautiful music. I love your buildings and your parisian apartments.

I love your sunrise and your sunset.

I love how classy and chic your people dress (although I love my sweatpants) and I love to delight myself in their beauty. 

I love your Nutella Crepes.

I love sitting in one of your many cafés, at the pretty pink or blue or marble tables and think how perfectly instagramable they are.

I adore your french accent when you speak english. 

I feel like you have more rain than London, but I love you even in rainy weather.

There’s a magical inspiration on your rainy streets.

I love that you look like a painting.

Your beauty makes me feel alive and it comforts me.  And for that, I will always love you.

    Oh, Paris mon amour!
    I can absolute feel what you write about my hometown, Paris, the city of childhood, family, friends, food, laughter and so much more.
    Hope to meet you there one day to capture us in this beloved place!
    Wonderful!
