Not Just Christmas in Paris!!

I changed the date of my flight home from France to January 2nd... I'll be in Paris watching the fireworks at the Eiffel Tower on New Year's Eve.. instead of here on the couch watching it on TV!!! What a way to end this year and start the next. I am so over the moon about this.

I am spending money that I should probably use to fix things around the house but I'm thinking it's more important to throw caution to the wind and just spread my wings and fly. I haven't shared this with my family yet since it's four months away and I think they will get their Christmas gifts very late since I intend to shop the markets in Paris for their gifts.

Well good grief ! Just found your blog and now you're leaving...LOL.

How exciting to be traveling to Paris and be able to stay for awhile. I'll look forward to hearing about your adventures.

Now, is that Dr. Hook of Dr. Hook and the Traveling Medicine Show?

Hi Francie,
Yes, that is the same Dr. Hook.. now defunct but some of the group are still singing.
I'm not leaving for France until mid December so I will be floating just a bit above the ground until then.
Luckily it will be winter and cold or I would probably forget to go home.
