etsy treasury: romantic afternoon in paris

Illustrated map of Paris by Lindsey Bee
With a last name like Moulin, you know I can’t help myself from wishing I were French. And that I live in the heart of Paris. And drink fancy cappuccinos every day. And wear lovely French clothes. And am completely fluent. And have two adorable little French children who are obedient and eat their vegetables. But the reality is I’m not French. And my husband is actually Cajun. And we live in Little Elm, Texas with three dogs…All technicalities aside, I do like to dream about living in France (or Spain or Greece) one day. And I like to think my afternoons would look something like this:  

My dress - yes, I would wear a wedding dress on a normal day in Paris. I would totally own it.

I could honestly live on French macarons (PS - they're super hard to make. I've tried a number of times and it's hit or miss. Sparkles Macaron has obviously perfected them.)

To write elegant letters back home. In calligraphy, of course.
