There were a few exciting things that happened this week. First, I booked a ticket back to Paris for not one but two projects. I was lucky enough to loop them in together so I could be in Paris for 12 days. I am so happy to be going back. I typically go in April so this will be a little different. I will share more on the details as the trip gets closer.
