ahhh, I’ve finally made it to Paris and am no longer a jetlagged zombie. It took me a good 4 days to adjust to being 7 hours ahead of Austin time. The last few days have been completely consumed by wedding planning and wedding planning. I thought that all I had to do was get a dress and show up, but I guess there is a little more to it, like accessorizing, choosing flowers, finalizing menus, ordering rings, getting dresses for the reception and brunch, etc. Thank goodness for the mister’s mum and sister, otherwise clueless me would be completely lost. We’ve been all over Paris picking up this and that and everything is nearly done now.
While wandering around Paris, it finally dawned upon me that I’m going to be living here and this isn’t just a quickie vacation. I can’t believe that this is my life now-is this really real?
And it keeps getting better….the mister’s mum and I ran some errands for the wedding this afternoon in Montemarte and I stumbled upon fabric and crafts heaven! The mister’s mum had already mentioned that the area had tons of fabric stores, but I had no idea that it is fabric GALORE! Each store had at least 5 floors and each floor is chock full of every fabric and supplies imaginable to fulfill every seamstress’s dreams! I can’t wait to go back to the area to pick up some fabrics-watch out project runway!
