Bon Voyage

Friday, July 16, 2010


"Oh my goodness. Oh my goodness. Oh my goodness." {as Henry would say} I am leaving. Yikes. I am so excited... SO SO excited. But as I type this I feel a little bit of a shake in my fingertips. I am so nervous to leave my little family. Does Henry have enough diapers to last him? {Potty training has been postponed... just in case you are keeping track ;)}. What are Henry and Ross going to eat for dinner? Is Henry going to give me the silent treatment when I get home {he is famous for this and it breaks my heart in half}? What is our backyard going to look like {as I type they are jack hammering}? Am I going to burst into tears if I see a 2 year old boy on the streets in France? Am I going to burst into tears when I am on the TGV ALONE? Last time I road that magical train I was sitting next to my groom holding my wedding bouquet {it was so beautiful I took it with me on our honeymoon}. Well those are just a few of my fears.

With all of that said I am so grateful for this opportunity. It is hard for me to believe that by the time you all read this I will be on a flight to the most magical place on Earth. The mecca of everything beautiful {in my opinion}. I can not wait to meet 10 other ladies with a passion for all things French. I can not wait to sit by the pool with a book. Or to wake up at 'dark o'clock' to be the first ones to the flea market. I am beside myself with emotion for this adventure. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

While I am gone I will not be blogging, rather I will be soaking up every second 'unplugged.' But while I'm away I have a little guest series that I have been working on for you. I have been daydreaming about what my bag is going to have in it, which lead to a curiosity of what the style is of the little town I am visiting. Every little spot on the globe has it's own unique style. Every time I travel I feel like I pick up on a trend or cultural difference that enhances my life at home {I guess this is what I love so much about adventures}. So with that in mind I reached out to 5 bloggettes all around the world and asked them to share the style of their town. Thank you so much Sarah {USA}, Lori {Canada}, Linda {France}, Vanessa {Sweden} & Ashley {Germany} for taking over while I am gone.

See you in a little over a week.

Bon Voyage.
