city love

There is something about a city that inspires love even on a cold snowy day.
The city makes me feel alive and in love.
My heart races.
People love to flock to the city for love, for fashion, food, fortune and fame.
I came to New York during college for a co-op internship and fell in love with the city and my husband too.

Do you have a city you love?

I love NYC, London and Paris for it's culture, architecture and food. You can't help but feel alive in the city!

You're right. There's just something about a big city. Since I live in a small town, big cities are great places to run away to for a few days getaway.
Best,
Susan

I do love NY. I was in last night and just the energy gave me a lift. So much inspiration everywhere you look!

I just love New York City too. My husband and I visit whenever we can. The lights, Times Square, the shows, The museums, what isn't to love?

The Buzz said...

Love NYC - in any season! Though it's hard to gaze upward at the fabulous architecture these days as the mounds of snow are a distraction.

I love London for so many reasons. Paris is beautiful, Rome is vibrant, Sydney is fun but London's home.

Oh the first image is so lovely...
it reminded me that Valentine's Day is just around the corner:)

There is something so exciting about big cities that adds a spring to my step. I love Chicago, NY, and SFO. I don't thing I have enough room to even begin to list the cities across the big bay of water. xo

My favorite is NYC. However, I do love Chicago and San Francisco!

Being born in the middle of NYC my city love is in my blood. It flows through me. Park of my is always a few miles south of where I lay my head.

Beautiful post! You're absolutely right about NYC. It's my hometown and even though I love other cities...Paris & London are right up there...nothing quite matches it :)

Thanks for stopping by today. So happy to meet you :)

I have many! I love Dallas for it's glam living and wide open spaces. I love Paris for its oh so chic everything. I love San Fran for it's hills and that fab red bridge. I love NYC for it's pulse and energy.

I'm not sure I'll ever call just one place home!

It is quite lovely. I have a special spot for Boston and Atlanta. Grew up not too far from Boston and Atlanta has quickly become the mr. and I's romantic get away for a night.

Delightful words on the city I love too!
I love New York and Paris!
But lately Berlin pulls me strongly and I fell in love with the city a few years back, when my sons moved there!
And I have not fallen out ever since....

JMW said...

I love San Francisco - I have to say it's my favorite U.S. City. I adore Dublin, too.

LindsB said...

While I do love NYC, and the fiance has hopes of living there one day my heart belongs in Boston. I love my city and I cant see putting roots down anywhere else :)

I love my garden, so I don't know if I could be a city girl. Matt brings up buying a weekend place in NYC someday, just about every week.

Brillante Interiors said...

Every time I visit a new city I wish I could buy a place there...but my favorites are Paris and New York (of course most Italian cities appeal to me too)

PVE,

I find love in every city I visit. I've found that if I approach every city with an open heart the love gets returned.

I love NYC, snow or sunshine, warm or cold. Delightful surprises and inspiration around every corner... I had such a lovely time visiting with you in the city -- hope to come back soon. Of course, Seattle in the sunshine isn't bad either! XX

That's so fun. I love to hear that. My husband and I are both in love with New York City too. We started going there when we were dating and this was the first year we have missed visiting in November in 23 years. It made me really sad. Thanks for stopping by and your sweet comment on my little blog update. Have a great weekend. Mona

i love so many cities... hard to pick... la, nyc, london, paris.... and i do love seattle... when the sun shines! xx

My Dog-Eared Pages said...

I do love NYC... I spent 21 years living in Boston and love it, too. But NYC never ceases to wake-up all of my senses and renew a sense of wonder and excitement. It was my city growing up in CT... just a train ride away. Love.

CREED said...

I fell head over heels for NYC when I visited a couple of months ago, its incomparable and I literally can't wait to return and plan to frequently. My next favorite US city is Chicago, i love cities that have rich history and great architecture. Barcelona is the next city I'd like to explore....

I am so missing NYC! We live for now anyway in southern California and every day people say to me "I'll bet your glad your missing the New York winter." well actually we kind of feel like we are missing out. 73 and sunny every day is nice, but a little overrated.
