Wishful Thinking {guest post ~ Paris Atelier}

A wish is a magical little device that gives you hope. When you close your eyes and whisper your wish into the world it makes it feel as though your dream is absolutely possible.

I wish for travel. This wish is not only for myself but for everybody and especially for my Son. I believe in traveling to places unknown, favorite spots with wonderful memories, countries unimagined, and places that can soothe the soul and allow one to recharge. I grew up in a family that was always traveling to new and exciting locales and I have learned so many incredible things about our world and the people we share it with on our voyages. Travel brings cultures together and offers us an understanding of other people and places. It broadens our realm of just what is possible on this Earth and teaches us compassion and tolerance. It brings people and families closer together, connects us to our roots, and makes wishes a reality. 

I have visited places that I can never forget and daily long for. These places hold some of the most beautiful memories and special moments of my life. I am certain that I have left a piece of my heart in each of these spots. I long to one day share them with my son and hopefully, gift to him unforgettable memories, adventure, and the magic of possibility. Whether camping nearby for a family reunion, taking a road trip to other States, or voyaging across the ocean in search of foreign countries, travel is my wish. 

Whether you make your wishes when you see a shooting star, blow out your birthday candles, or toss a coin into a fountain or wishing well...I hope all of your wishes come true.
Paris Atelier is written by the lovely Judith who lives her life with a French flair. Judith shares inspiring posts of magnificent destinations and fabulous history of glamorous periods. She travels the globe in search of vintage and estate treasures which are offered in her etsy boutique, and she is currently in the process of opening a brick and mortar shop.  I look forward to visiting for the grand opening and sharing a glass of bubbly with this très chic lady!

  1. I used to travel a lot and miss it, but I have to admit, having recently traveled, flying and all the early check-ins and delays - I wish were not so hard to deal with. I wish for easy travel....

  2. I haven't been on a real vacation that I wanted to take since 2002, so I've been wishing for a lot of travel for myself lately. I want six months abroad. Maybe a year. I want to discover this world rather than just see it in photographs.

  3. Happy trails to you wherever you go, Judith. People who meet you along the way will be very lucky travelers.
    Best wishes,

    And a very lovely blog here, I must say.

  4. I admit that traveling is one of my addictions although, now, it's a little more complicated-we have a smaller income and a young child.
    I was raised in a home where we rarely traveled. I think we traveled twice throughout my childhood years (and never left the state of Texas). Somewhere in the midst of college I took an opportunity to study abroad and that was the end of my "small" world. My horizons were forever changed. I, too, wish that my daughter, husband, and I will travel the world together-that would be such a thrill!

    Beautiful wish, Judith. I can just imagine your Little Prince standing wide-eyed as you share the world with him.


  5. I always love to travel and adventures beautiful places too.

  6. What a beautiful post. And I couldn't agree more! "It broadens our realm of just what is possible on this Earth and teaches us compassion and tolerance." So true!
    Thank you!
