Friends to Last a Lifetime

Okay, so I have kind of a gushy post for everyone right now.. I’ve said before how I have the workd’s best friends ever and that will never change. Last year, my best girlfriends sent me a care package in Paris from the States to cure my homesickness and tell me how much they missedContinue reading “Friends to Last a Lifetime”

How Paris Changed My Life

I remember the first time I thought about it. I remember thinking, “This is crazy.. I’d never actually do it..” And then I remember realizing that actually nothing made more sense to me than moving to Paris. After just one year, my time in Paris has changed me. I’ve grown into a completely different being.Continue reading “How Paris Changed My Life”

Mom & Dad Take France, Pt. 1: Paris

I FINALLY SAW THEM! Eight long months after leaving my loving parents, we were reunited in Paris! I gotta say, that long wait at the front of the greeting line at the airport was quite tense for me.. Waiting, watching for those two faces while grasping a fresh baguette and doting a black beret and stripedContinue reading “Mom & Dad Take France, Pt. 1: Paris”

My Christmas in Paris

If you’d asked me at any other point in my life, I would have told you that I’d never spend a Christmas away from my family. It’s the best time of the year and I cherish this time that I get with my family around the tree, cuddled up in blankets, hugging mugs of hotContinue reading “My Christmas in Paris”

So, here’s a list of things I am so incredibly thankful for right now: 1) My morning todayContinue reading “Thanksgiving In Paris”

Feeling Loved

I just need the world to know that I have the best friends in the entirety of the world. Today, I received the most amazing package from them with all of my favorite things, stuff I’d been missing from home and some creative cards as well. They coordinated together to get me this awesome packageContinue reading “Feeling Loved”

Catacombs!

So I just got back from hanging out with six million skulls. I finally went to the catacombs in Paris today! The day before Halloween! Perfect timing! So this was yet another thing to check off of one of my bucket lists. Anyone who knows me knows that I love scary things. Scary movies, scary books,Continue reading “Catacombs!”

Memories to last a lifetime

I feel it’s time to follow that last sappy post up. With another sappy post. But in the opposite way. So, here goes. I’ve been in Paris for seven weeks now. And I have to say that I’ve met some absolutely wonderful, beautiful, stunning and kind people. I have to start this post off with myContinue reading “Memories to last a lifetime”

Nobody said it’d be easy.

Well. I’m finally ready to admit it (although those close to me already hear this constantly). I miss home. Like reeeally bad. I knew it’d be a struggle to move an ocean away from everyone I love but I never imagined it’d be this hard. Don’t get me wrong, I love Paris and don’t wishContinue reading “Nobody said it’d be easy.”
