Friday Five

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5

Well friends, we’ve entered the two week countdown to Paris. Two weeks from today, or rather, last night, I’ll be strolling around the city of light, snapping away and quite possibly crying all over myself. Today’s Friday Five is a little moodboard of Parisian inspiration (how incredible is that postcard Picasso sent to Gertrude Stein in 1919?). Hopefully the weather will be somewhat mild, but regardless the light at this time of year is just unbeatable: slightly pale, gray, and still magical. I’m trying not to panic about the possibility that the coat I bought and planned around might not be warm enough if the weather Paris suddenly decides to hover around freezing, by telling myself that the worst that could happen is that we spend too much time inside cafes or museums. Not exactly a horrible trade off, non?

Tonight I’m taking my mom to see Lewis Black (I got her tickets for Christmas) and then, fingers crossed, having a low-key weekend conducive to writing. I have too many ideas rolling around inside my brain right now; I need to get them down on paper. What are you doing this weekend? Make it a good one, kiddos.

  • I’m beyond excited for you and your new lens to get to Paris. Oh and BF too! Just can’t wait to hear all about it. Thanks for checking in on me, girl. XO

  • LOUIS BLACK……just sayin’!!!! Oh and besides me telling you to take a warm coat, don’t forget to get a calling card so we can talk!

  • Ooooooh how exciting! I can’t believe it’s around the corner now! This part of the world is experiencing a very, very cold snap (-2 degrees celcius) but I can’t see it lasting for 2 weeks, just make sure you bring woolly socks! We visited Prague in the middle of winter and I wouldn’t have survived without thermal socks!

  • these pictures are just lovely. that is the exact feeling i want to have when i visit paris someday. sooooo prrrrreeeetty! i am so excited for you and can’t wait to see all your wide angle photos.

    lewis black, eh, that should be a lot of fun! start the weekend off with a little adventure and then hunker down for a marathon of writing – good plan. it’s suppose to be stormy here this weekend so i am just planning on staying in and working on a few things myself and of course watching the oscars on sunday. xoxo

  • Aw, these pictures are gorgeous! I can’t believe your trip is only two weeks away. Well, that must seem like a lifetime to you. I can’t wait to see all the beautiful photos that will come out of that trip. It will be like taking a virtual vacation with you.
    Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend and getting lots of writing done. (Eames had her first Tball game on Saturday and we saw Argo, and then there’s the Oscars!) xo
