Surprise Proposal at Chateau de Versailles

This is by far one of the coolest stories I have ever come across.  Zeshan, master planner that he is, created one of the most intricate, amazing, unique proposal plans that any guy has ever put together to surprise the love of his life, Annie.  On the morning of April 1, a few days before her birthday, Zeshan surprised Annie with tickets to London – for THAT afternoon!  He had previously contacted her workplace and secured time off of work for her, so all Annie had to do was pack.  After being assured it was not an April Fools joke, Annie packed her bags and the two of them headed off to London that same day!  After a few wonderful days in London, he surprised her again, this time with tickets to Paris!  Once in Paris, he surprised her yet again with a “portrait session”  with yours truly at Versailles.  Annie was convinced that this was all an elaborate birthday gift, so she was more than happy to go along with the plan, not realizing that he had one last (very very sparkly) surprise left for her…

It took quite awhile for Annie to stop grinning from ear to ear – and who can blame her with a stunner like this on her hand!

Paris’ Prettiest Cafe

Ah, Le Nemours.  Paris’ prettiest cafe, conveniently located just beside the Louvre, guarding the pathways and gardens of the Palais Royal.  In the summer this place is packed with tourists and locals alike, both on the stunning column-lined terrace and in the equally beautiful and quintessentially French interior.  I was dubious about the quality of their food – any cafe this cute is usually horrendously bad – but I have to say, the delicious chevre sandwich I had here was one of my all time favorites.  It’s a pretty picture-perfect place to grab a midday snack and glass of wine in between a long day of museums and shopping in the 1st arrondissement.

Rainbow over the Eiffel Tower

It has been a rainy mess in Paris these last few weeks, with rainstorms popping up nearly every day, punctuated by brief bits of gorgeous sunshine.  It’s certainly putting a kink in the picnic-ing plans, but on the plus side, when it brings moments like this it’s hard to be unhappy!

Lovers in Paris

The great thing about the French is that they don’t see passion and love as something that has to be kept private, and they happily and proudly put their passion on display anywhere life takes them.  It’s beautiful and inspiring to watch, and it’s quite contagious.  Being in Paris just makes you want to pull your loved one close, which means you can find sweet, intimate moments like this all over the city.  Lovers in a Paris Garden
