With temperatures reaching the 20°C mark this week, it’s safe to say spring has arrived in Paris. Coats are being left on their racks, sweaters are being stored for chiller days, and warm weather clothes are making their way to the front of people’s closets. Sandal clad Parisians and tourists are flocking to the river banks, parks, and cafes to soak up the sunshine and bask in the beauty that is Paris in the springtime. In a way no other season can quite replicate, spring encourages us to relax while at the same time reinvigorating our energy levels. Spring makes us want to both lounge on the terrace and get a jump start on all of the projects that were left unattended during the dreary winter months. In a perfect world, we’d be able to successfully combine the two, but more often than not one gets sidelined by the other.
Striking a balance between work and play has never been easy and, as many of us know, managing our time well means a constant cycle of readjustment where schedules, tasks, and commitments are prioritized and shuffled. As evidenced by the lack of recent posts, Posted in Paris is experiencing one of those readjustment cycles. We’re taking some time to update past posts, reconnect with current contributors, foster relationships with new contributors, and most importantly, develop new content to give you the best practical information about life in Paris. Please excuse our lack of posts as we tackle some internal spring cleaning. We’re going to dust ourselves off from the long Paris winter and start fresh!
