One Year Ago, in Paris

One year ago today, I got to go to Paris with Jordan. It was spring break for me and in addition to a visit to Germany, we decided to take a long weekend in one of the world’s most beautiful cities. Please believe me when I say I had one intense to-do list for our visit. There were places to go (many, many many) shops to visit, and (many, many, many) things to eat. We landed, we dropped our bags, and ran out the door of the hotel to start our weekend, after getting directions from a nice Parisian man. I was practically jumping out of my skin, I was so excited to be in Paris.

We walked past the Louvre and decided on lunch and coffee before delving into art and history.

Nourished and caffeinated, I was more than ready to commit to the Louvre. However, Jordan insisted on exploring the pyramid courtyard a bit more before ducking inside for what could be hours, and I begrudgingly agreed.

Finally, Jordan settled on “one more hallway” before we got to go inside, get warm, and finally see the damn art. Except…French Grey Photography by Brian Wright for French Grey Photography by Brian Wright for Jordan 004

Clearly Jordan had much bigger plans for Paris, and who was I to refuse them? So one year ago today, I said yes to I do, and had the most memorable and beautiful weekend in Paris with my best friend and the love of my life.

Jordan and my mom had coordinated with Brian (standing to the left in my hallway photograph) at French Grey Photography to capture our engagement and their efforts (thank you!) make it easier to share that wonderful day now.

To suggest that I was anything other than surprised and overjoyed would be an understatement.

I’ll share the rest of our Parisian adventures another day, because nothing can top the best surprise proposal from the best guy in the world.  Stay tuned for Paris, and here’s to saying I do in May!
