I've Always Dreamed of Paris

Dreamed of Paris
There is something romantic about Paris. I have never had the privilege of visiting but I dream about going. I imagine cobblestone streets, old buildings with rich history, fine wine, and of course wonderful pastries. I also imagine seeing beautiful people.

As a result of my fantasy, I am drawn to all things Parisian: books,  photographs, relics, blogs and  even podcasts. One podcast that is dear to me is called The Simply Luxurious Life by Shannon Ables. I first learned of Shannon by reading her book of that same title. Then I found her blog. She is a self proclaimed Francophile. I can't say I am a true Francophile because I haven't studied about Paris and its culture. Instead, I have just absorbed information in passing and thus I continue to dream.

When I tell my kids of my desire to visit Paris, they give me so many historical details as to why they think I may not like it. I tend to ignore their remarks and my love affair with this place of my dreams continues.

Where do you dream of? Have you had an opportunity to visit. Did it live up to your expectations? Let us know and until then continue dreaming if it makes you happy because ultimately these little joys add to the Good Life:)
