a parisian afternoon

first sighting

Continuing our leisurely day through Paris, Vanessa took me to her favorite park: Parc Monceau. One thing I never expected to love about Paris was its parks. In fact, before going visiting last year, I didn't even realize Paris had a lot of parks. I loved the Jardin du Luxembourg and Jardin des Tuileries, and Parc Monceau was no exception.

It's wonderful knowing that parks are plentiful in such a big city. When a city like Paris is renown for its architectural wonders, it's especially nice to see that nature takes part in making the city beautiful.

Of course, my first day back in Paris wouldn't be complete without decadent desserts and a visit to the Eiffel Tower. Sometimes I think it's silly that I got so happy seeing a famous landmark-- maybe I was just happy to be in the city that made it famous.

always a happy sight
