Exactly one month from yesterday, I will be back on US soil.
I know some of you are incredibly excited for this, and others are dreading every moment that brings that date closer. I'm sorry for you. But yesterday also marked a magical occasion.
I found a knitting store.
Well, I didn't find it, but I was in it! A girl from my Cin City class showed it to me and we had a wonderful time reveling in the amounts of yarns, and I consequently spent far too much time looking at patterns that only require one set of needles (and that I could do in Rome). I miss it hard core, but I know it will only be a distraction. Somehow I've managed to overlook that little obstacle, and continued to look at patterns.
That aside, I leave in approximately 45 minutes for an epic reunion in Paris! Reunion? How? What?
Let me explain.
My childhood comrade Juliette moved back to France after 4th grade. Through the magic of Facebook, we have managed to keep in contact and even plan this eventful reunion. I'm incredibly excited to see the girl who played on all the same soccer and basketball teams with me, and I haven't seen since we were 10. So think about that next time someone disses the good old Facebook, bringing people together decades apart.
So I need to finish packing, probably should eat something, and need to get on a train/plane!
I'll let you know of my revelries on Sunday!
