You were probably expecting a Monday Mash-Up this morning, weren’t you? I’m really sorry about this, but we’re interrupting our regularly-scheduled program for something stunning :).
I can’t remember how I first stumbled on Richelle’s Instagram feed, but I’m so glad I did. See, she and her sweet husband Eric were chasing a dream they’d both been talking about for years- after their wedding, they picked up and moved to Paris, France for six months. Why? Because they’d always wanted to. As Richelle is a wedding photographer and Eric is a cinematographer + actor, they had the flexibility to be able to swing it. And if not now, then when? As if I didn’t already have a complete girlcrush on Richelle, those sentiments alone would have done it.
Too often we dream big, but then tell ourselves “one day, years from now, I’ll do that thing I really want to do.” And then we never get around to it, do we? That’s why I love Eric & Richelle- they just DID IT. They had a dream and they chased it, a crazy dream to live in the prettiest city on earth, to recklessly pursue adventure with the one they love most.
Eric, Richelle, I can’t thank you enough for such an incredible morning in my favorite place in the world. The fact that after so many years together, you still look at one another with the eyes of fresh love? It’s inspiring. They way you shamelessly flirt, it’s endearing. I can’t tell you how much I loved my morning with you both, and I’m crossing my fingers we’ll meet again! Hopefully in Paris. Or anywhere in France, really. I’m not picky.
