These days waking up in Paris is difficult because it is pitch dark even at 7am but once the sun breaks through and spreads its light over this magnificent city I cant help but feel lucky to be living in one of the most stunning cities in the world.
This weekend I played true Parisian. I walked towards the cobbled street “village” behind my new apartment that I am growing more and more in love with and bought fresh patisseries, fleurs et fruits. This is exactly what I imagined before I moved here. These boutique little fromageries (cheese shops), boulangeries (bakeries), boucheries (butcher shops) and fruit & vegetable stalls with whom I hope I can eventually exchange small pleasantries and start to know. The Parisians thrive on building relationships and dont believe in superficiality and I am keen to penetrate their hearts.
Here you can see the beautiful pink roses I bought this weekend, proudly looking over this stunning city that is now mine, from my very own living room window.
