Bonne Année | Paris

Paris street photography
Paris apartment

Seems this little space slept through the new year (hello jet lag!)... and took the cue from sleepy winter mornings in Paris when the sun rises way after coffee and school drop-off, somewhere around 8:45am. It's easy to take it slow during this time when cold and grey abound, but it's also a great time to hunker down and get work done!

So I've spent the daylight hours working on the project I've resolved could use some much needed attention this new year - my little shop, The French Kiosk. Over the holidays, swirls of fresh ideas arose bringing with them renewed enthusiasm and energy.

I hope your 2016 is off to a great start! Here's to marvelous moments of productivity for all we endeavor to do these coming months, to pursuits both personal and creative :)

  4. I understand those slow beginnings at this time of year. I'm feeling it,too! I'm so excited for the renewed energy going into your shop! Can't wait to see. I know one must get used to what is seen everyday, but I just think I would stay inspired seeing streets like these!

    1. Thank you so much my friend :) It's funny how the mind/eyes work... it's why I love this Proust quote: "The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new lands but seeing with new eyes.” always...

  5. Ugh, jet lag can really slow you down, sometimes up to a week! Since January is still half way, I still can wish you a happy New Year:)

  6. That first photo had me thinking of Paris in the 1920's (no - I didn't live through that period!). It just has that kind of vibe. Will be interested in browsing in your shop. Welcome back - hope you had fun visiting family.

  8. I had not realized that Paris had shorter days. I live in Alaska where it doesn't begin to get light out until well after 9 a.m.
    Your photos are beautiful. I wish you a wonderful New Year and best of wishes with your new shop.

    Thank you for sharing with us at Thursday Favorite Things Blog Hop.
