Snapshots of my daily life in Paris. You know that saying about how the little things are what makes you happy, or some such variation of that? I have found it to be particularly relevant lately. From top to bottom: a Bordeaux as a candle holder in my room; the Asniéres-sur-Seine city hall; an impromptu flower market; duck confit searing in the pan; a cage of parakeets found near Notre Dame; baguette with caprese fillings; view from my French classroom window, Rue Poissonnière, 2nd arrondissement; hot chocolate and an almond croissant on a Sunday morning.
