une petite introduction

i started this blog a little while ago but didn’t decide to post anything until now. someone suggested blogging my post-graduation adventures, but i wasn’t sure they were worthy of anyone’s time…. yet! after reading my horoscope today i decided i needed to get this thing going before i leave for france – which is just one week from today! now i can’t make any promises as to how well i will keep up with this, but i will at least try.

for those of you who don’t know, i am spending the month of march in france. it was always my dream to study abroad, but i chose to be involved with fish camp instead. as graduation drew near i decided this was a trip i needed to take before i entered the “grown up” world or i would regret it later. i got my godmother kathy on board for about 5 days at the beginning of the trip and dad for about 9 at the end. those days are pretty well-planned, but the two weeks i’ll be alone are completely wide open! any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated. as for now… à bientôt!

    Wow. Our mother is ridiculous but I can’t help but be impressed. I hope that you keep up with your blog because I want to live vicariously through your postings. But if you don’t want to waste a single second of your time in France sitting in front of a computer screen, I understand. I am so proud of you. Je t’aime.Bisses,ta soeur, Resa

    lanie dearest,i love the non-capitalized blog, because i am a huge fan of resisting the shift key. i am at work with mom right now, and i’m still thinking of the amazing dinner we had last night. the refusal to take a plate home was quite possibly the worst decision i have made this week. i love your blog, might start one of my own, and will keep track of you as you travel across france. see you sunday.xoxo

    that’s funny, i don’t remember res emailing me the link to her blog so that i could have it in permanent records to access at will and not just when she puts it on her away message for a hot second.love, amber

    i really like how this comment wall has really just turned into a sort of discussion board for the four of us to take swings at each other! :)maddie – i’m so glad you came for dinner… or rather the feast at casa de lambs… maybe i should call it maison des lambs since this is a FRENCH blog. i’m also glad you liked the no caps because that’s is also what i prefer :)
