When spring arrives in Paris, it happens all at once. Yesterday, it happened bringing with it a tide of yellow. Everywhere I looked, I spotted things cheerful, bright and spring-y. A welcome change after the misty grays of winter.
Here are a few pics I snapped around town to show you what I mean.
Changes in the weather have a dramatic effect on Parisians who can be almost cheery when the sun shines. Spring means the chance to do all the things they love best: bask in the sun at outdoor cafes, dine and picnic en plein air and indulge in their favorite activity of all -- flirting.
Shedding winter layers (although not their scarves) and donning sunglasses and lighter clothes are an invitation to amour around here. Even the kids are acting a little risque, stealing kisses and rolling happily in the grass.
As for me, I'm ready to tuck the wool coats and boots into the back of the closet and feel a little sunshine on my skin (SPF 30+, of course).
So, for now, I'll leave it at that. I light, little post for a sunny day when I really should be sitting outside at a cafe. Check back soon for my list of favorite Paris spots to dine, shop, and take the kids when you come visit. Just in time for your next trip to Paris.
