Proposal in Paris

In honor of 100 days until our wedding, please enjoy.

Paris, France — We arrived in Paris about mid-afternoon. The city spread out before us with old buildings and architecture and beauty. We couldn’t check into our AirBnB quite yet, a cute little apartment in the heart of the city, so we decided to explore. Our bags were left with the cleaning lady, and we hopped on the metro, Paris’ subway system.

I was set on finding a famous bookstore, Shakespeare and Company, and once we found it, I happily scoured the shelves. I left clutching two books with a stamp of the Shakespeare and Company logo inside. If you are a book-lover, this place is a must-see!

Je Suis Paris

When something bad happens in the world, be it a large or small scale, I think of the movie, The Matrix. When the machines first started using humans as generators, they created a perfect world inside the matrix where nothing terrible happened, but the human mind couldn’t accept it and thousands of them died.

We have terrible things that happen in this world, and we use them to make us stronger, hold our loved ones tighter, and always remember to say “I love you.”

Je suis Paris. We stand with you.IMG_1550
