Life in Paris: Month Deux

Bonjour mes amis, It has already been two months since our arrival in Paris! I cannot tell you how fast this time has flown by.

I am… Continue reading Life in Paris: Month Deux

La Tour Eiffel

It’s been three weeks since my trip to Paris and I still can smell the fresh baked baguettes in the air. Visiting Paris during spring is such a difference than being there during the summer.

There are gorgeous… Continue reading Paris for Kids

Hither & Thither in Paris

Life in Paris is vastly different than in the States. Here, walking is the main mode of transportation, next the Metro and only if you are in a hurry do you take a taxi. We have logged many miles walking all over town and it’s crazy how close to everything we are. It took some… Continue reading Hither & Thither in Paris

Rustic charm vs Shabby chic

I keep starting to write posts and I haven’t published any. It’s not like I haven’t been busy lately, I just haven’t been in to mood to take as many photos because I need to take our Nikon SLR camera in for service. Using my iphone to take photos has left me feeling uninspired. I’m… Continue reading Rustic charm vs Shabby chic

I know being nervous is silly yet I have terrible butterflies in my stomach. I have been waiting for almost two years to get this interview. I feel so… Continue reading French school interview is Friday!
