it all started with madeline and top ramen

when i started kindergarten, i would come home after school and dad would make me a delicious batch of top ramen and say, "now this is the best ramen i've made." then i would enjoy an episode of madeline. he even took me on a "date" to see the madeline movie that came out. i'll never forget that.
ever since then, i have been dreaming of visiting paris, that i'm learning about art history, my desire has increased. i know the french can be mean, and it can be dirty there..two things i hate..but i just want to go! not only do i want to visit, i want to feel like i live there. i can just imagine myself trapsing the streets of paris, sitting down at a cafe to enjoy a croisant. i met a guy last semester that served his mission in paris, and i was just THAT much more attacted to him when he told me that...oh and when he spoke french, i could barely handle it. even when i look up pictures of the ifle tower, my heart beats a little faster. there is just something about a childhood dream that i can't let go of.
one day, i will be there.


  1. Let's go to Paris!
    “Maybe you should go to Paris, Linus. It helped me. Have you ever been there?” “Oh yes, for thirty-five minutes…changing planes.” “Oh, but Paris isn’t for changing planes, it’s for changing your outlook! For throwing open the windows and letting in…letting in la vie en rose.” “Paris is for lovers…”- Sabrina
