  1. I live in Paris and so on New Year’s Eve last year, my boyfriend and I went to spend the day at Disneyland. It was acatluly a very grey and misty day, but nothing can ever be gloomy at Disney. We ate at the Cafe9 Hyperion/Videopolis Theatre in Discoveryland for lunch and we were pleasantly surprised when a live band started playing Christmas songs and other classic tunes. With the music playing in the background and my head on his shoulder, I remember wishing for time to stand still. We had gone to Disneyland Paris before, but I will always cherish that particular memory because it was one of my last moments with him before he moved away from France. Bittersweet, but c’est la vie.
