I am a romantic at heart and I love Love stories!
Paris is one of the most romantic cities in the world, filled with beautiful gardens, castles and great music ... but it doesn't matter how wonderful a place is ... if you're not with the one who holds your heart.
Taylor Hicks' "Places I've Been" is truly one of the most beautiful of love songs and stories.
It is the tale of a travelling man who realizes the only place he really wants to be.
My heart simply melts when I hear Taylor sing this song.
I find myself imagining he calls his love, baby girl, as he does in "Dream Myself Awake", and thinking that there wouldn't be a dry eye in the house when he sings it live!
I took my imagination a bit further and created a "Places I've Been" love story in pictures, and it is oh so romantic!
It just so happened that You Tube chose my Paris image as my video cover, well "April in Paris" is certainly romantic!
I hope you enjoy all of the wonderful photos and that you'll click thru to enjoy the larger screen available at You Tube and feel inspired to leave me a comment!

April at the 'Pond' has been blooming with romance!
Taylor Hicks singing about sweet Honeysuckle in full bloom, Sugarland singing about "April Showers", visions of an exotic romantic holiday in Italy with the movie 'Enchanted April' and lastly "April in Paris".

Classic seashell buds slowly spiral open into blooms of the palest dawn pink edged in a solid pink.
Oh So Romantic!
