Paris is ALWAYS a Good Idea

Paris is always a good ideaAudrey Hepburn knew exactly what she was talking about when she said “Paris is always a good idea.”

If romance could be described by a city it would be Paris. It is truly breathtaking, And at night with all the lights on it’s magical. It’s like being in a movie. I am obsessed with everything this wonderful city has to offer.
