A Happy List from a Paris Cafe


While I was sitting at Ten Belles in Paris, I had the urge to make a happy list. After all, there was much to smile about.  An amazing cafe in a lovely city.  A trip with my mother and the promise of an afternoon braving the first days of Les Soldes.  Here are the things that made it into my little purple book.

sitting in cafes for a long time

cashmere sweaters

contrasts make life sweet

i choose to live a sweet life

flat boots

beauty and ugly and beauty

dreaming more
