The Eiffel Tower- I’ve heard so much about you

With all the hype that surrounds the Eiffel Tower, I had half expected to be disappointed or underwhelmed by the actual sight of it… but I wasn’t.  As I craned my neck to take in the tower’s height, I kept thinking “this is really happening… I am really here… I am in Paris.” It’s one of those moments I will never forget, and it reminded me that I didn’t just love to travel, I needed to travel.

I’ll Always Have Paris

I just recently returned from a week long trip to Paris and as much as I love New York, I achingly miss the Parisian joie de vivre.  Life in Paris is slow, carefree, and uncomplicated.  Instead of being mired by what ifs and what nexts, people in Paris know how to embrace the now and to live each day like the wonderful gift that it is.  I feel so lucky to have sampled a sliver of that lifestyle if even for only a week.  Each time I start to feel stressed or anxious again, I’ll just close my eyes and take myself back to Paris.

Falling in Love with Fall

I don’t know about you guys, but Fall is my absolute favorite season.  The cool, crisp air, the beautiful warm hues, the excitement of the impending holidays, and the coziness of sweaters and scarves. As a SoCal to New York transplant, my love affair with seasons knows no bounds. This year, my friends and I decided to take a mini day trip to a place where Fall exists without the constant interruption of concrete buildings and taxi cabs. Annie, was kind enough to share her camera, her photos, and her craziness with me this weekend when we visited Kent, CT.


Check back to Monsieur Jamon soon to find out how I got shoeless, wet, and bruised this weekend.
