Je t’aime Paris

{Eiffel Tower at night}
These past 2 months have been life changing.  I quit my job at the end of March and I found myself with no immediate plans for the first time in my life.  I decided to take advantage of this time to travel, do all the things I’ve always wanted to do, and document it.  I’ve wanted to go to Paris ever since I was a little girl.  This trip was a dream come true.  I went with my greatest foodie friend, Lisa.  Together, we conquered Paris with our stomachs and I also welcomed 29 with open arms.  I loved everything about Paris.  The tea salons, the food, the fashion, the architecture, even the French.  It’s the perfect place to fall in love with life.  The French know how to live.  Never have I ever sat at a cafe for more than 2 hours chatting with friends, or have a 3 hour lunch with wine, or break for tea time at 3 PM and have pretty colored macaroons.  Now that I’m back in NY, I find myself searching for the best tea cafes and macaroons to relive my Parisian vacation.
