Paris, once again. A city of liveliness and romance. Of quiet smiles and canal-side music. Of baguette nibbling, people watching, aimless wandering, café hopping. (Anyone who has been unfortunate enough to hear me talk about Paris over the past couple years knows I can go on forever.) My travel habits have changed a lot because of this city. I used to spend a lot of time scrambling to see all the "important" places while traveling, all the while missing the actual feel of wherever I am. Paris slowed me down and showed me the importance of soaking in the little details. It's amazing how much you can miss when you're so focused on seeing everything.

Like always, here are just a few things that caught my attention over the course of a couple leisurely days in the city of light.
