I heart Paris

It’s been a few weeks since I returned home from my trip to Paris, and I am still completely smitten by the place I will always hold so dear in my heart. What with my surprise engagement and fairy tale adventure to Disneyland, I never did get to share my photographs of the most beautiful and iconic piece of Paris.



You guessed it, The Eiffel Tower.

The size is by far spectacular and far taller than I could have ever imagined, the setting is also beautiful and although buzzing with tourists, spacious enough to feel like it is completely your own. The bronze colour really stood out for me, for I never imagined it to be as clean cut and pristine as it was, of course it’s design is pure iconic and one of a kind.



I know it’s famously known as a romantic place, but I can actually say my heart skipped a beat when I first caught a glimpse of it, I felt the same butterflies I felt when I went on my first date. I always believed romance was something of nighttime, but being presented with the most eye-catching and enchanting tower in daytime, I finally realised romance can exist in any place, at any time.



One thing I am most certain of is that I will visit again, and I know in my heart I want to see it in all seasons covered in snow and watch the sunset on a hot summer’s day, that is my dream.



This is a landmark which will never disappoint me and one I will never ever fall out of love with.
