Good Fortune

12

I promise to continue my series of Solo Travel later this week but I wanted to share this little bit of good news. Last week I spoke to Fortune.com about my etsy business. 86% of people that sell on etsy are female. Luckily they decided to chat with me for a little about my story. Of course only a small snip bit made it into the article but I thought I would share.

I am a big dreamer but in my wildest dreams dreams I never thought I would make it to a fortune.com article. I guess it shows you if you think BiG you get BIG!! Click here to read the Fortune.com article.

Happy Birthday Madame Eiffel

2

When I arrive in Paris each time I make a point to make a nod to Madame Eiffel. Its like a tip of the hat to say hello nice to see you again. I have also gotten in the habit of calling her Madame Eiffel. Over the years I have shared many memories under the eiffel tower. I have seen her covered in fog, watched the sunrise behind her, blossoms blooming all around her, the most stunning sunsets with her as the focus, and yes I have even had romantic picnics under the eiffel tower. This is probably one of my favorite memories 😉

The eiffel tower has been part of some of my favorite Paris photos because what’s more Paris than Madame Eiffel? We will be reunited once again in just a few short weeks. I have a few things planned with Madame Eiffel and since our birthdays are less than two weeks, a celebration is in order.

Christmas in Paris

0

This year I came close to Christmas in Paris. Unfortunately my business requires my presence in the States during this time so I literally left the very last day I could. I had a show early in November at the Lycée Francais in Chicago. I love supporting this school every year and couldn’t think of a better way to transition back to the States. Thankfully Paris starts getting ready with holiday decorations come November 1st. Since I was in Paris until the 7th it was crunch time walking around the city and see what had already been put up. Sadly, the lights were strung on the streets but they didn’t turn on until much later in the month. One of these days I will get there! Here are a few photos of the festivities beginning in my favorite city.

My Paris Fall Wish List

Since my decision to go back to Paris this Fall I have been creating lists upon lists. Places I want to see for the first time and some places I want to see again for the 10th time. Favorite bakeries and a few restaurants that I missed out on my last trip. Those lists I will share with you another time. Today is My Paris Fall Wish List. Places I want to see the Autumn leaves fill with colored leaves.
