How it All Started

Ever since I was a young girl, Paris has been my dream. From the Eiffel Tower and other landmarks to the cute cobblestone streets, I was always in love with it even before setting foot here. 

I remember telling my friends that my honeymoon would be in Paris (that hasn’t happened yet, but now that I live here, I’ll probably want it somewhere else 😊) and that if I had to choose one place in the world to relocate forever, it would be Paris!

A few years later, fate stepped in! I met a charming French boy who was traveling in my home country at the time! We did the usual LDR for a while, traveling back and forth until we decided we needed a better solution! 

He convinced me to move to Paris although not much convincing was needed as I had always been in love with this city, so moving here was an easy choice!

Yes, I am making my Dreams in Paris come true! (I know… I couldn’t stop myself from throwing in my blog name)!
