Paris: A Lovely Way Of Living

America is my country and Paris is my hometown. – Gertrude Stein

I was born in Paris, and I haven’t moved, except until now – I live in the suburbs and I hate it. – Luc Ferrari

If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast. – Ernest Hemingway

Paris is always a good idea. – Audrey Hepburn

In my case, all true.  I feel like Paris is my hometown.  I now live in the suburbs and I hate it with a passion.  Inundated with soccer moms, over-priveledged children (no offense) and old people (I live at the Jersey Shore), the burbs are not my thing.  I thought I could adapt, but alas 11 years later, I’m still in Hell.

Even though there’s no place like home (and I am an American), Paris is one of those incredible cities with whom you can’t help but fall in love.  Props to Audrey Hepburn when she said “Paris is always a good idea”.

    I’ve never been to Paris, although it’s so close to my hometown it’s ridiculous. I have no excuses… 🙂
    The “somewhere in the 18th” picture is just striking. Love it! Did you take all these pictures? Keep it going then!!
    🙂
