Slow Food

Monday, September 12, 2016

We all have that place in the world where we're the happiest. For me, it's Paris. Of course, the city is beautiful and inspiring, of course the food is delicious, but what I love most is finally having the time to sit down and enjoy life as the Parisians do. A coffee and tartine outside at a café isn't a place to scarf down breakfast in 5 minutes before work- it's a place to sit, reflect on life, and watch people strolling by with their dogs. I always try to take this idea home but, alas, it usually only lasts for a day or two before I'm back to my quick coffee and oatmeal before rushing out the door. As they say, we'll always have Paris.
