I find my self looking forward to each season. Paris has many sides to it and honestly I can find beauty in every one. I never really had this feeling before as I never really lived anywhere with seasons, but I find myself pleased to bundle up and wear my winter clothes.I actually think it will be strange to go back home to a much warmer climate… good but weird.

Paris inspires me. I think that is one of the reasons I have grown so attached to it. Everyday I find something new to fall in love with. I love the challenge of learning a language that not even natives aren’t fluent in (this seems to be what every French person tells me when I stumble on my words). Although I have lived here over a year, I still never lose the sense that I have so much more to explore and experience. As much as I miss my family and as difficult as it is that there is an ocean between us, I can’t seem to break away from this life. I wish I could move them all out here with me. πŸ™‚

Speaking of family–I leave for the states in less than a week. I am really excited. I really love Christmas time at home and I cant imagine spending it anywhere else. No matter where I am in the world I feel like Christmas is something that has to be spent in my warm house with all the Christmas decorations my mom has carefully laid out and the presents under the tree my parents spent hours wrapping. Nothing will every change that.

Here I go again with loving two places…
