We're Going to PARIS!



So, usually for our anniversary, Ryan and I have a tradition of doing a weekend getaway to a new city that we've never really been to before and exploring all the fun it has to offer (last year we went to Claremont Village, CA). But this year for our anniversary, we will be exploring the new-to-us city of PARIS, France!!! Can you tell I'm a little excited? We've been talking about going for a while and saving a little money in a "Paris Fund," but I wasn't sure if it was actually going to happen. But Ryan bought the plane tickets- so now it's official! It's perfect timing: I have an aunt ("Tata") who lives there who can hook us up with a place to stay and will have fun showing us around and Wendy's old enough to be okay with her grandparents for a couple days.

We will be there a week, and I really want to do all the touristy stuff AND the leisurely stuff to just soak up the city and take it all in. I've even been trying to catch up on my French (I took three years of French in high school- hopefully it's like riding a bike, but I doubt it). If any of you out there have been to Paris and have a favorite spot, let me know. I want to do it all!

how fun!! so we went to paris a few years ago and hands down my FAVORITE thing in france was versailles, where marie antoinette lived. there's a casette-tape tour where you walk around with headphones and the gardens are so pretty. you take a hour long train ride out there and its so worth it. and the great thing about france is that all the tourist-y stuff is pretty close in proximity to each other. like the eiffel tower, arch de triumph and notre dame are all really close to each other. and it costs like $10 or something to walk up the massive stair case in the eiffel tower, that was pretty amazing. ooh, and you have to get a crepe from a street vendor. okay, this was a novel but i'm so excited for you!
