In 12 weeks...

... I'll be sitting on a flight to Paris!
A couple of weeks ago, my friend, TM, and I were hanging out (confession: we had a Sex and the City brunch and movie outing) and I casually mentioned how I would love to go on a trip to Paris, but that I should probably save my money. To which she replied, "Don't save your money, go on a trip with me!" And seriously, that was all I needed. After booking our hotel (in the Latin Quarter) last week, we went all in and got our plane tickets. Now it's official... we're really going and we are SO going to eat every pastry in sight, including my favorite pain au chocolat.

Anyway, I think we will see the major stuff (Louvre, Eiffel Tower, Sacre Coeur, Champs Elysee, Musee D'Orsay, Notre Dame, Versailles, etc.), but if there is anything off the beaten track or any restaurants that you'd like to recommend, please feel free to post your tips in the comments.

Congratulations! Nothing like travel to bring refreshment and clarity.

I will be digging myself out of the Grand Canyon next weekend, without my originally scheduled travel partner, trying not to plummet over the edge or die of heat stroke. If all goes well, the whole experience should yield an amazing feeling of accomplishment and pride... although, sadly, I don't think there will be as many fresh choco croissants where I'm going.
