"C'est fabuleux!"

That was the first phrase I learned when I moved to France...

Sigh... "C'est fabuleux"... translated.... "That is fabulous!"

and France... it was fabulous.

My sister told me once about a friend she had who saved up all her money and bought herself a diamond ring... we thought to ourselves... how funny... and ridiculously cool to save up an enormous amount of money and spend it on something amazing...

Ever since then our plan has been to quietly save up for our "little something amazing"... How neat would it be to pack up your office on a Friday afternoon, wish everyone a good weekend and secretly head to Paris...

Come Monday morning... you stroll back in beaming... coffee in hand and bags under your eyes having had the best 48 hours ever! Full of boulangeries... cappuccinos... pain au chocolates... sigh...

It's just a dream... just a thought... but don't be surprised if one of these Mondays I log on with "Bonjour"...

sigh...

"C'est fabuleux!"
