I am going to be short and sweet for now. Currently, it is the afternoon in Paris and the sun is shining. This is rare as the weather has been quite cold and rainy. I spent the morning with friends over breakfast at a new spot just 15 minutes from me. They asked me what was on my list for the rest of the trip. In a way, I have thrown out the list. This is the part about living here instead of visiting. I have meetings planned and projects but besides that, I just want to live and enjoy Paris. I have been incredibly happy enjoying life being disconnected and being immersed in the culture.
I am switching apartments tomorrow which I have to say I am sad about. I have felt incredibly comfortable in this apartment and love the look and location. I am moving down the street not too far but it will be a little change of scenery. I promise to share details on how I found my apartment and to show you more photos soon of both spaces.
Reflecting on the trip half way through makes me stop and think what have I enjoyed and focus on doing more of what makes me happy.
What I am Struggling With …
Paris makes me happy which is why I am here. But if I lived here full time it might be very different. Would I get tired of croissants and coffee? Would I stop thinking the man at the corner café was sweet and charming? Will the magic go away? Like with anything if you see it every day do you appreciate it the same?
Stay tuned for the next book club choice on Wednesday!
