Un Jour Gris
05 . 20 . 14
As beautiful as Paris is on a sunny day, it’s even more beautiful when it’s grey. Today is the first day that I’ve been here that it’s rained a little but it’s ok because it just makes everything more romantic. I had to run over to Monoprix to pick up a few things which was not romantic but I was able to cut through the Jardin du Palais Royal on the way. (On a side note, if you’ve never been to Monoprix, make sure you visit on your next trip. It’s like a smaller French version of Target.) It was a little before noon but it was so quiet in the gardens. A few people were also walking through and a few others were reading. Every green space in Paris peaceful oasis from the chaos of the city but especially the Jardins du Palais Royal since the surrounding buildings insulate you further from the outside world. Everyday I look around and can’t believe I live here. If you work hard enough, sometimes dreams do come true.
The world’s favorite season is the spring,
All things seem possible in May.
