>Can I tell you how much I love Jeff’s new job!? I Love it. He is so happy there and the people there are great all that stuff….but I Love it with a capital L because he gets to go to places like LONDON for work! So, since I found the job, encouraged him to apply, proofed his resume, and …ummm..gave birth to his only son, I get to tag along too.
We spent the first two days in London, just being in the city. Both of us couldn’t believe how simple of a flight it was from Chicago and also how easy it was to get around. Our hotel was right downtown, and the Pope was in town for a visit so there was lots of activity.
We were in Paris for less than 48 hours. I have to admit, I was afraid to go. I was so keyed up on how mean the French were to us and that no one would speak English that I don’t think I let go enough to try and just be in the city. I would like to go back with a bit more notice and a higher self-esteem to actually speak those phrases I learned on the You Can Speak French Podcast I listened to in the 90 minute ride to Paris.
It was an amazing trip. I am very luck to have great family to watch Cameron on a whim when we go on trips like this. My travels in the next few months will take me to Minneapolis, Austin, Salt Lake City, Orlando, and maybe even Vegas. I am a pretty lucky girl to add this one to the mix.
