I love Paris for many reasons.

One of them being that I can eat baguettes, croissants, and pastries without having stomach pain.

I also love that it feels like a step back in time. That the city still holds magic on every corner even when you aren’t looking for it.

The best parts of Paris aren’t the Louvre or the other art museums. The best parts of the city are found are wandering the streets and stopping for pastries and people watching at cafes and window shopping at stores that are way too expensive.

And even though it’s cliche, the Eiffel Tower is really just nice to look at and makes for the best pictures.

Ophélie and Djamal are both from Paris. But just because they live there doesn’t mean they adore it any less than us Americans wishing we were born Parisian (aka me).

We met early one Tuesday morning at the Pont de Bir-Hakeim bridge. It was rainy and foggy but these two didn’t mind getting wet.

But what’s more to love than Paris with your love?
