summer in paris.

eiffel tower

i finished weeding through the rest of the photos from paris over the long weekend. i can't seem to form sentences to go along with any of it, but i figure it's best that way. paris is difficult to describe in words. this overwhelming sadness came over me when it was time to leave, and that same emotion crept up when describing how much we enjoyed our stay. not because vacation was over, but because i felt this very real connection to paris, as cliché and saccharine as it sounds. have you ever visited a place and felt like it just fits?

and with that, summer in paris….

l'as du fallafel in the marais did not disappoint (thanks marissa!).

Beautiful shots. I love Paris in the summer... and fall, winter, and spring. Glad you two were able to enjoy it!

I'm such a sucker for vacation pics. Beautiful photos! Also, you look so chic - we need some packing tips, bc those would not look as crisp if i'd packed them!

You look so chic in all these photos! I think we need an autumn style post!

Yes, I felt the same way about Paris and I was only there for three days. Three! I stopped on the street as my boyfriend and I were approaching our train out of the city and said, through tears, that I felt very, very strongly that I should not be leaving Paris. We were supposed to meet friends in Bruges but I desperately wanted to stay. I left on that train five years ago and I still feel heartbroken.

Ah Paris sounds like such a lovely place to vacation. I think I'll be visiting in the next year or so for the first time and I can't wait! :)

your pictures are gorgeous. I live in the Alps and I love it whenever I get the chance to go to the capital!
I usually don't use the métro, I prefer to stroll, as they say, Paris is a village.
As for the question, yes, New York City makes my heart skip a beat, every time!
I'm going next summer!! Can' t wait...
