Then you know that my oldest daughter gifted me a trip to Paris. I've decided that 2013 is the year I will go!! I am so excited as I start to plan this trip!
I have started this year with a new favorite thing!
This amazing sign was made by my good friend and fellow blogger Jenny Matlock!
She has a great Etsy shop
Where she makes great signs. You can buy from her samples or she will do a made to order as she did for me! I asked her to make me a Paris sign and requested pale pink and black, after a few emails back and forth she had it!
It came out better then I could have dreamed!
I love it. Pale pink with a charcoal Paris and an Eiffel Tower....Perfect!
This is going to hang over my bed as I dream about my trip to Paris!
Thank you Jenny!
As I make plans I will be sharing some of that here on my blog.
This is a trip of a lifetime!
I was in Target the other day and saw this....
Isn't it just too cute! In the dollar spot at Target, of course I got one for me...but I also got one for you! Well one of you!
I will be adding little items to it monthly as we lead up to the trip. I'll do a giveaway before I go and one lucky reader will get the bag and contents AND I will buy them something in Paris!
My cousin was planning to be my travel partner on my trip, but unfortunately it's not to be. A few weeks before Christmas she went to the Dr about a persistent cough. While there he realized she had Afib and Immediately sent her to the hospital emergency room. She ended up spending almost 4 weeks in the hospital and there were some touch and go moments. She is home now but wearing what they call a 'life vest' that monitors her heart. She cannot drive yet and since this appears to be a long term problem has reluctantly decided she cannot go on this trip. I will miss her company but have decided I will continue my plans to make this trip in September!
My first big decision will be where to stay. I am looking at staying in a studio apt so I can have a small kitchen. I will be staying at least 10 days so this seems a good idea. Anyone who has been to Paris and has recommendations please share with me. I am open to all suggestions!
I'm joining these parties
Wising You JOY,
