This week has been a whirlwind of travel preparations - what to wear, what to leave behind, what to carry-on - my mind has been spinning trying to remember how to be an efficient packer. It's so hard to predict what mood I will be in, so how can I possibly plan a week's worth of outfits? I certainly plan on bringing some pedicure supplies to help relax in our Parisian apartment after wandering around the city.

To soak up some time together before my departure, and celebrate a belated Valentine's, I treated Stephen to a homemade Lemon Tart (something sweet always rouses him from his computer). The sugar and bright yellow color certainly put me in the mood for spring, and inspired me to treat myself to a pair of Tibi yellow python brogues to help make my walking shoe wardrobe more fashionable for Paris. I am anxious to share my travels with you next week!
