French Nostalgia

Oh Paris...


I love you, and I miss you:


Your beautiful architecture...

 

Your exquisite art...


Your elegant dialect...



Your striking sense of style...



Your outdoor cafés...


Your mouthwatering cuisine...


Your delightful neighborhoods...

Even your countless stairs...



One day we will meet again and pick up right where we left off ;-) 



Je T'aime!

Oh Jess, Thank you for the beautiful pictures of Paris. my desire is to go before I can't walk those stairs. This could explain why I have the desire to go there. My universe used to be the corner of Mill st. and Cleveland Ave. So I developed Wanderlust early. I'll be following your site more now. xoxo, Susie (She Junks)

Mary Smither said...

I'm ready to go back! Loved your photo's...a great reminder.

Celestina Marie said...

Hi Jess, this is fabulous and given me such inspiration in my redesigning process this month. Thank you for sharing your pics. Beautiful.

I have NEVER been there, but your words and photos convinced me it's worth the trip. I hope you get to go back soon. GORGEOUS photos of a LOVELY place.

Oh, Jess, I was on email when your mom's comment came in, and I raced right over here to see your pix of everybody's favorite city!!! It does a heart good to spend a few minutes here soaking up all this beauty! I love the "pain, vin. frommage" pic. We led a small photography workshop to Paris this past November, and this was the first place we took them!!
I don't know when you sisters were there last, but hurry back! I wish I had discovered it when I was young...you're so lucky!

Cami said...

I miss it, too. :( The only thing I didn't like too much about Paris were all of the gypsies. It was a little uncomfortable. But, other than that, adored it!! I can't wait to go back!

Sares said...

Teresa said...

There's somthing in Paris that makes one feel homeless when leaving doesn't it?
It is, probably, because how well she adopts as her own everyone who comes to visit and let herself being adopted right back.
That's why Paris isn't a it but a she.
Thank you for bringing a bit of Paris on this cold morning.

And yes "we'll always have Paris"!

Brenda said...

Beautiful Paris! I have always wanted to go there. Awesome pictures!!
