Paris, France. Hi, my name is Dianne and I am an unabashed lover of Paris. I have been in love with Paris for as long as I can remember. I know this is not unique, after all, Paris is the number one tourist destination in the world! And when you mention Paris to almost anyone you will hear a proclamation of love and longing.
In my twenties, I worked two jobs to finance my college tuition and my first trip to Paris. Looking back, my experience was anything but glamorous, but it thrilled me just the same. I still remember gallivanting around Paris, arm in arm with my friend Leslie B. while she shared her highlights of Paris-Jim Morrison’s gravesite at Père Lachaise Cemetery, the view from La Tour Eiffel, modern art at Beaubourg and crêpes on the street. Even our cupboard-sized chambre de bonne with the bathroom in hallway, epitomized to me la vie en rose.
For 20 years I have cultivated a dream,a dream to own my own little bit of Paris. Every birthday candle wish is for a Paris apartment, every family trip to Europe, Paris is our first stop, every book about Paris is in my library. I subscribe to TV 5 and Bien Dire and I’m still struggle to learn the language. You get it, because you have the same obsession too, don’t you? Well, my dream finally came true and I’m still pinching myself because I cannot believe it really happened. This blog, Le Paris Projet is to share with you my new life in Paris, with all its ups and downs. So please visit here often to experience with me my Paris Project.
