Midnight in Paris


Sunday evening Darling Boyfriend and I went to see the new Woody Allen movie Midnight in Paris.The film takes place in Paris and highlights the unbelievable beauty and charm of the city. Owen Wilson is a Hollywood writer who is dissatisfied with his career and is attempting to write a novel. In an attempt to finnish his novel, he finds inspiration in the streets of Paris, wishing to harken back to the vibrant literary and art scene of 1920s Paris much to the chagrin of his overbearing fiancee and her wealthy parents. Each night he wanders the streets and is transported to what he views as the golden age, the Paris of Gertrude Stein, Ernest Hemingway, Zelda and F. Scott Fizgerald and Pablo Picasso. Not only did I fall in love with this excellent movie (do yourself a favour and see it) but it made me miss Paris. I’ve had the luck to travel to Paris a few times and each time I visit I fall more and more in love with the city. Here are some of my favorite pictures of the city that never fails to enchant me from the last time I was there. What city makes you fall in love with a little bit more each time your there?

  1. Ah…Paris….yet another thing we have in common, it seems! Paris was my honeymoon destination, and my love surprised me by whisking me back there to celebrate our first year anniversary exactly one year later! I adore Paris, and some of the environs, most notably The Opera House and Versailles….their cemetaries are ‘hauntingly’ beautiful (sorry…I couldn’t resist!) and simply walking the streets, leaves one breathless! Nothing like a coffee while looking at the Arc de Triomphe and the best vanilla ice cream in the world? The Musée du Louvre! Maybe one day we’ll go on a shopping spree there together! lol!

  2. I would have to say Charlottesville, VA…. last we were there Jason and I took a wine tour. Incredibly small compared to Cali however, they are becoming great rivals, really taking their wines to a new level. There is also a surprisingly amazing art community there, as well as music. Absolutely lovely for weekend getaways at the unique b&b’s.
