Travel Blogging Paris Advice

During these troubled times I am reminded that Paris is not just a place to visit...but a state of mind.

For those of us who love this city, Paris is food for our souls, representing the height of what we revere in culture, architecture, fashion, gastronomy, and simply, the art of just being.

Although we cannot experience Paris in person right now, me included, we can still celebrate these things. In fact, it is probably more important to do so now than ever.

So, I will continue to blog as much as I am able about my love affair with Paris and all things French, because as we all know, absence simply makes the heart grow fonder!
