And the Winner Is....


This is what I wanted to save until today to share with you.

Last week, I entered the Valentines Day giveaway on another très fab blog, parisian party, and I won! All I had to do was post a comment saying why I love Paris. I am thankful it was a random drawing and not based on my way with words. Anyway, Kim Petyt (the super nice blogger) is mailing my prize, "Paris in Love" by photographer Alison Harris. Pretty exciting, huh? Kim also said the nicest thing on her blog, "I hope that winning this book is a good sign that Mary will soon get her wish and return to the city of her dreams."  This sentence gave me the sensation of fireworks inside, and I'm still sparkling.

And speaking of books, Kim's own book will be out March 1st, but you can pre-order it now on Amazon.com. It is highly unlikely that I will ever get married again, but I'm dying to see inside!

We had an interesting discussion in my french class about the do's and don'ts of getting married in France. While we're at it,  my friend, Marcia is a wedding/event planner here in Austin, and she posts the most fabulous "weddingy" things on her Facebook page, Le Fete Chic.

Okay, I think that's about it for this Valentine Eve. May you be covered in le chocolat and pétales de rose tomorrow. That really doesn't sound as good as it did in my head. You know what I mean.

Happy Valentine's Day tout le monde!

beaucoup bisous ~

  2. Stumbled across your blog... I too am an Austin-based Parisophile, and also look at pictures of Paris apartments when I need my "fix". Bonne chance following your dream - I'm sure you can find a way to make it happen!
