Drumroll, please...

So, I know that you all have been on the EDGE of your seats waiting for my surprise....
not really.
But anyways, drumroll please...
I AM GOING TO FRANCE! Hooray!
What you all don't know is that I am actually half French. Most of my Dad's side of the family lives in Paris, and I get to go there around every 2 years or so. I am leaving this Sunday and staying for 2 weeks. I will most probably have internet access and I will try my hardest to post while I'm there, if I'm not too busy. I am going to be doing a lot of shopping (oh yes, I've been saving up), and some sight-seeing as well. And, I will also be in Val D'isere for 5 days, which is a fancy shmancy ski resort. I'm so excited!

Here are some pictures from two years ago...I would show you ones that I am in, but I am too embarrassed. Not only did I have very poofy hair and braces, but I also had no fashion sense whatsoever. haha.

oh paris i am French so i think it is a graet trip but in the same time i will sell my mother to live in NY (French expression that means i really really love living in NY!). There is some great expo in Paris for example in Grand palais about Picasso and in Mussé des arts decos about Sonia Rykiel... Have a nice trip! Merry Xmas or Hanuka !
