springtime in paris

Les amoureux de la Bastille, 1957
Willy Ronis

As April brings the new beginnings of spring, the air gets a little warmer, the moods get lighter, the birds fill the skies, the tress are blossoming as so is love - all around.

Ah Spring! It is definitely a magical time of year, even more so, as you can't avoid but wonder how it would be to spend springtime in the most romantic city of them all...Paris!
