Somebody seriously pinch me…did I just truly book my ticket to Paris? Yup…my credit card clearly states that I did…so it must be TRUE! Yes, this pregnant lady, who dreams about Paris constantly, is actually going – in THREE WEEKS – no less. Nothing like a bit of spontaneity!
My sweet husband came to me last week and told me he knows going to Paris is a dream of mine and he’s so proud of my little Etsy shop that he felt it would be an amazing experience for me to go to Paris – before this baby arrives and my life changes dramatically.
I looked at him and started laughing…”You’re kidding right?”
Nope. He wasn’t. A week later, I have my tickets booked, a flat in Paris reserved and a pile of tourist books to devour. Yet, I’m still in shock. I can think of nothing else. Even in my sleep, I am wandering the flea markets, hunting for treasures and converting Euros into dollars!
So cute right? It was a steal compared to the Parisian hotels and the owner of the flat has been beyond gracious already and so helpful! Gotta love the view of the Eiffel tower from the bedroom. I don’t know how I’ll ever sleep!
A dear family friend is coming with me so I have a partner in crime! She’s an experienced antique huntress and a bunch of fun! Can you imagine all the pretties I will be able to bring back for the shop? and just think of all the photos to take! I’m going to be completely giddy! Let’s just hope my high school French gets us by…
If any of you have been to Paris and have tips you’d like to share…I’m all ears!
p.s. I will be sharing this trip with you guys too…so get ready for Paris overload! ;)
