Paris in the Fall

Hello gentle reader,

As you may know, I’m lucky to be able to go to Paris quite often. Last spring I posted a few pictures of the City of Light, and since the weather has been gorgeous here in France for the past few weeks, I thought you might enjoy a few pictures of Paris in the fall…

Back from NYC!

Hello gentle reader,

I’m back!

As always, I had a wonderful time in New York City.

I went to see Wicked The Musical for the 7th time (!). It was amazing. (If you don’t know about my obsession with Wicked – the book and the musical – check out my Pinterest board).

… and I’m going to New York City for a week! As a result, I won’t be posting on this blog and I won’t be on Twitter much, but I promise to resume all my online activities when I return!

In the meantime, happy reading, and/or happy writing!
