Paris, the city of lights year round glows even brighter at the holidays. I’ve been away a while, and I’m excited to get back to it any day now just in time to ring in the new year. It’s been six years since have spent a countdown in Paris. This year I’m gonna light it up as bright as I can. I’ll have some Perrier-Jouët in hand, stars in my eyes, friends by my side, and most likely my camera in tow to capture the joie de vivre in Paris.
