It has been another snowy and cold week in Chicago. As I type this, snow continues to fall outside my window. I met up with my friend Kim to share my goals for 2019 and I excited to see how this year plays out. I will be sharing more on my goals on February 1. I gave myself the month of January to reflect and recharge which has been much needed.
Insomnia has gotten the best of me this week. I want to blame it on the full moon but it has lasted a few days. There is no good reason for it. I am surrendering to it and I am taking the opportunity to put a dent in this book. To be honest, I have felt stuck when it comes to reading lately and I haven’t wanted to dig into anything. I spent a few hours reading this last night and I can’t wait to get back to it. I actually like reading in the quiet at 3 am when no one else is awake.
One in 50 people find the love of their lives on a flight. Sounds like I need to book another trip somewhere!
These are the best French movies for people who want to learn French. Caroline recommended that I do this and I really believe it helps. I prefer Disney movies or movies. Has anyone tried this?
The Treasure Behind the Wall. What was discovered at the new Oscar de la Renta Boutique in Paris
15 Best Wines at Monoprix (bookmark this for your next trip to Paris) If you aren’t familiar with Monoprix, it is the French equivalent to Target. They have a full grocery but also housewares and clothing. The kids clothing is where I always tell friends to shop when they visit. It’s so cute!
I love Grace’s honesty in this post. She explains blogging well as we are just normal people with very public lives. It is something I struggle with a lot. She shares way more than I do personally. When it comes down to it, I am not just protecting myself from privacy but the people around me (friends/family) that don’t necessarily want their lives out in the public.
