It’s hard to believe that it’s coming up on ten years since I made a fleeting visit to Paris. Back in college, I spent a summer studying abroad in Spain, and just before I flew back to the States, I spent two nights in Paris. I know, I know — it wasn’t even close to enough time to see it.
When I went in August, it was sticky and hot, but while there, I bought this beautiful painting of Paris in the fall. Golden trees line the Seine, the Eiffel Tower is partly obscured by orange, yellow, and maroon leaves, and I can just imagine myself there, taking in all the charm of Paris in crisp, chilly weather. Some day it’ll happen.
