I know I’ve been slacking on the posts this week but I swear you have a longer post tomorrow. This week has just been busy with packing and trying to see friends before my departure so thank you for your patience. I’m off to the airport in less than an hour and I can’t believe my summer in Paris is about to begin!
There have been some questions that I want to address before I take off. A few people were under the impression that I won’t be posting from Paris. Of course I will be posting! There will be a million things to write about and I will definitely bringing you lots of chic people, places, and things from France as well as Europe. I hope you will bear with me though as I get settled and figure out a schedule.
Everyone wants to know if I’ve found an apartment. I will be staying with my friend Eleanor and her family n the 1st right beside the Palais Royal for the first two weeks while I look for an apartment. While I didn’t name her in the post, Eleanor is my friend with ALS I mentioned in my Kindness post. She moved to Paris with her French husband and daughter and I look forward to spending time with her. I swear she does more in Paris than most able bodied people and has an amazing spirit!
What I didn’t mention in my Next Chapter post is that sometimes you have to get out of your comfort zone to grow. While I know I’m not joining the Peace Corps and moving to a third world country, there is a difference between visiting Paris as a tourist for a week or two and moving for four months. I’m excited to see what this summer holds and I’m excited to bring you along for the ride!
