"Life is too short for fake butter, cheese or people"

There is something extraordinary about traveling across an ocean to visit a friend, eat pastries for breakfast, read fantastical books until your hearts are content, and walk miles across a new city.  Adventuring to new places with people I adore has become a necessity to my life.  Here are some photographs of one of my recent adventures with one of my dearest friends.

The architecture in France is one of the many magical things, along with the food.  The stories are true, French people truly do practice the art of food and it is splendid.  Beginning our mornings with pan au chocolats or baguettes and coffee, along with reading at the kitchen table until noon, it made for a delightfully perfect day.  Not to mention, a baguette sandwich in the afternoon or hot chocolate in the city before a homemade dinner.  Julia Child was spot on when she said "Dining with one's friends and beloved family is certainly one of life's primal and most innocent delights. One that is both soul-satisfying and eternal". 

I believe people watching to one of life's most underrated adventures.  France is an incredible place to see people from all walks of life.  Sitting at a an outdoor cafe, going to a park, walking to the train, there are fascinating people everywhere. 

Merci beaucoup!
