It's raining in London this week.
Correction...it's raining a LOT in London this week.
While I still remember my recent unbridled enthusiasm while expounding on the joys of fabulous English summer rituals in this great city, that optimism has been temporarily diluted by the fact that I have not seen the sun for two consecutive days since we returned from Italy a few weeks ago. So much for my hard earned tan. So much for Summer.
Although the clouds will surely tire of their present location at some point, it's afternoons such as these when one needs to escape from the dreary reality of the day and take a wander elsewhere. For me, I've found my solace in soaking up these exquisite snippets of cafe culture in Paris, shot by Nichole Robertson of Little Brown Pen. While all her photographs are impossibly beautiful, I've always found something infinitely romantic about spending long leisurely afternoons at a Parisian cafe, sipping my cappuccino and just watching the world pass by.
