Oui, Paris

There has been one thing and one thing only on my mind. Something the hubs and I have been contemplating for quite some time.  Do we do it or do we not?  Sometimes it's hard for me to make decisions instead of just doing.

We are planners {well, I am}.  We are not spontaneous {but we're not boring}.  We do not make quick rash decisions {hmmm, guess that's not true}.  We save our money and try to be thrifty spenders {ha, not anymore!}.

We have decided {probably isn't a secret anymore}...

That for our 1 year anniversary...

We're going to Paris!!!

Hotel de la Sorbonne {notre hôtel}

Get this.  They call their rooms "Design Rooms".  How perfect!

I want to go anywhere and everywhere.  I have never been but my husband has.  I know, not fair right?  So I fully expect him to be my tour guide.  However I have some requests.

I want to visit the tour d'Eiffel {well duh!}, our hotel is by the Notre Dame and I hear there is a wonderful crepes shop right by it.  I want to window shop with the possibility to buy {this is were my thrifty spending will probably go down the drain}.  I want to take le metro to Versailles.  I want to peruse the museums, sit in a cafe and sip vin chaude and espresso while people watching.

It's going to be cold, but that just means more snuggling and bundling up in chic French coats!


The French are so interesting, I am sure of this.  Can't wait!

Wait, is this what les femmes françaises wear?  :)

Welcoming in 2012

Picture taken after everyone left, at 2am.
Please excuse the sleepy eyes.

2011 was a big year for us.  You know, with getting married and all.  That means 2012 brings our 1 year anniversary as well as our trip to Paris!!  Not only am I anxious to start a new year; along with it I have some resolutions.  Just like everybody else I hope to overcome a few things, start a few things, get better at a few things, etc. etc. etc.  So here we go.

1}  Evolve my Etsy shop, Reminiscence, into a shop with a wider selection of paper goods and home decor.  {There's a part duex to this but that I'm going to keep to myself for now.  It's sort of - that's a lie - a huge leap and possibly will never happen but I am working on the dream!}  I also want to focus more on my blog and aspire to become one of those awesome bloggers out there like this one {love her}.  I need to work on my awesome photography skills so it can look more like this instead of the one above.  I mean, I love that photo of my hubby and I.  My editing skills just stink.

Ok that was a long one.  Let's move on.

2}  Organize our home so we quit gathering paper clutter from mail, magazines, and must-have documents.  I need a drop zone like this one.

3}  Start a class whether it be ballet, Pilates, belly dancing, something of the like.  I need to get my back and abs in better shape!

Feeling good about these.  All attainable and non of them involve dragging myself to a gym, doing something I hate {heavy workouts and sticking to a diet}.  Because THAT just would not work for me.

Happy New Years to you and yours.
