I can't tell you exactly what has been my fascination with Paris, it must be the romantic girl in me and I have always wanted to go. Even when people who have been there have told me its dirty and not very romantic. Alas for me its somewhere I have always wanted to visit and I am finally going. That's right! in a sickness induced haze I purchased a ticket this weekend. Its so exciting and terrifying and life affirming and long over due and all sorts of other things! I came across this picture once and it sums up what I want out of Paris (other than shopping)
and since I am going to Paris with a lovely friend it will mostly look like this, but with less fur.
