“The beauty of this garden would always reassure me,” she said. 
“Paris has a way of restoring your faith.” 

-Sofia Coppola on the Jardin du Luxembourg, New York Times

The gardens in Paris are really something else. As Sofia describes there is something so soothing and peaceful about being there as if all your problems suddenly drift away. Even with a grey cast over the sky and freezing temperatures I enjoyed just sitting in those perfect green chairs, eating a marron crepe with my cafe au lait in hand and thinking, maybe I have found somewhere else I could call home?
