Hey there, Only 1.5 months are left in the school year. Only 3.5 months are left until I’m in Paris. The only downside to this number is that once I realize how quickly time flies from here till then, I’ll be given a clear understanding of how 3.5 months in Paris are sure to fly…

Are You Living Each Day a Step Closer to Your Dream Life?

Hello there, I’m feeling pretty fantastic about the certainty I feel towards where my life is headed. Before, where I was filled with hesitation, fear, anxiety, and the like, I’m now filled with excitement, excitement, and more excitement! The other day, after my parents picked me up from the airport, they told me that they…

Lessons on Parisian Streets

Hello, I learned a lot along this trip, about myself, Parisians, France in general. Here’s a list off the top of my head which I’ll update as I think of more (I’m sleepy): myself –┬átraveling alone is awesome because no one complains about their feet hurting (my feet didn’t hurt even once) – traveling alone…

Finding Myself in France

Bonjour! If you have been following along on social media, you know I am in Paris right now. Let me start by saying that this experience taught me a lot about myself. This was my first time travelling alone and my apprehension was unjustified. I need to trust in myself and trust in my strength…

Years Prior

Hello there, It’s hard to believe that back in 2010, I was telling Ian (my boyfriend at the time and my best friend at this time) that I didn’t want to go to Paris. We were trying to decide on a halfway stop between our Italy trip and our stop in Switzerland and I was…

The Catalyst

Hi there, I got a job offer in Paris . Granted, it’s part-time work and so my search isn’t over, but this is it. This is the catalyst I needed to move forward. I couldn’t go there with nothing, but now I have something. I may be Ernest Hemingway-style poor, but it’s something. It’s Paris….

Silence, Beauty in Discovery, Dreaming of France & the Like

Hey there, I’ve strayed from my daily posts. I’ve decided that if I don’t have much to say, what’s the point of forcing it? And I haven’t touched upon day three of my trip to NYC because it was rainy, uneventful, and not worth chronicling (but you will continue to see photos, here and there)….

Unlocking my Obsession with Inspiring Workspaces

Hey there, When I was re-arranging my office space into a more open, bright and welcoming layout, I also imagined that one day I would be focusing on an “inspiration board” or decorating the area around the desk in a way that inspires me as I work here. As a lifestyle blogger, my topics of…

Day Two of Morning Madness

Hello friends, I’m moving slower today. And I had more energy at night than I usually do. Are these all normal symptoms of the ‘wake up early’ routine? While feeling like I am getting less done than I did yesterday, that fact is inaccurate as I had a lot of time to relax, got a…

Evening – Dreaming

Hello friends, It’s been a while — I apologize for that. It’s not as though life has been busy. It’s not as though I stopped day-dreaming about my grand scheme to move to Paris. It’s not as though I’ve stopped planning it all. I just didn’t feel compelled to write, and if it feels like…
