I don’t think I’ve been to a city where more people claim it as their own than Paris...and I’m talking about myself too...it feels like mine...but in a way that i know is sort of ridiculous? Do you know what I mean? Because I’ve spent such a small percentage of my life there... ❤️ When I was 6, I collected all of the one-use green metro tickets I could find and stuffed them in my pocket and my family split pastry after pastry seven ways. ✨ When I was in eighth grade, my professor uncle led a study abroad here and so we visited and I stayed in their apartment that was blocks away from the Eiffel Tower and I ate the best crepes of my life on the rue Clair. 😛 When I was on study abroad here when i was twenty, I’d sit in front of the water lilies at the orangerie and then I’d sit for a long time at Place sea Vosges and then I’d eat all of the cream-filled licorice candies. ...and I wrote letter to @natternatternatter while he lived in nyc. 💫 I came back here for a belated honeymoon with Michael as he saw everything for the first time. I encouraged him to kiss me wherever seemed like a beautiful view and at one point I got sugary lemon juice all over the back of his vest because I forgot I was holding the wrappings of a crepe... 😟 Now we get to be here with Arthur and he probably won’t remember but I like to see him in his little suede boots and tall socks running around. ✨ The best part of it is that I think all the claims to Paris are valid. I feel like Paris can love back infinitely 😂. Did you fall in love with Paris? When? Why? ❤️❤️❤️
Look, more brioche 😍. ✨ -the pregnant lady in France 👌 If we were going to go satisfy our cravings together right now, where would we go?
When I was 19, I once grabbed my laptop while I was watching a movie with my roommates in our tiny college apartment and I googled this...turning my screen so my roommates wouldn’t see: ✨ “How much does it cost to buy a castle?” 💫 I ended up spending hours on there, learning all about what properties were out there, who was buying them, what the renovation costs looked like on top of all of that...figuring out how much one would have to make to buy something like that. I dreamed of marrying a multimillionaire 😂. ⭐️ But I have to say it’s not the last time I’ve googled such a phrase. And while we’re here in France, I’m reminded of all that pent-up knowledge, waiting to be used 😂. ✨ What castles or palaces have you visited that you KNOW you would love to live in? (I know! It’s a little self-indulgent thought when i feel like i like to talk about less fantastical things, but it’s fun and there are so many amazing places 😂. Someone had to live in them, right?)
We didn’t know they don’t let kids under 5 come to the ultrasound appt...whoops! 😟 So there’s Arthur and Michael, waiting forever in the waiting room to hear if we’re having a boy or a girl and if the babe is healthy...it was the only doctor appt Michael planned to go to... ❤️ Sooo a watched the screen by myself, asking if both legs were there, if the brain and heart were healthy...so happy to hear they were. ✨ Halfway through the appt I decided I didn’t want to find out the gender of the baby before Michael so I asked them to write it down in an envelope for me. 🙂 We opened it as soon as I got to the waiting room...the cutest technicians wanting to watch our reactions. ⭐️ We’re so happy we’re having a little girl!! Tag alllll of your favorite shops for baby girls! I’ve been dying to buy little girl clothes for YEARS!
You know it’s time to stop making excuses, to stop holding back, to do what you were meant to do... ✨ But you’re scared. Scared because you can’t see already what’s in store for you! I get it. ✨ But I can see it. I can see what you’ll become. Like the way you’ll become known. The way you’ll be sought-after. The things you create that will change people’s lives...it’s all possible. ✨ Take the leap, my friend. The Aesthetic Way is your path and is waiting just behind this link: bit.ly/Aesthetic-way. ✨ Love, Emma. ✨ ⭐️ ✨ Wardrobe styling: @stay__co hmua: @bellacosabeauty photography: @darcybenincosa soul runner: @emma_natter
