After a very full trip to Paris, I am home! It is never an easy transition and it feels a bit like reverse culture shock. I wrote a post about the hardest part about coming home if you want to read here. 

I was pitched for a project after I returned home and it would be a DREAM job opportunity. I am not sharing details because I am still waiting to hear back. But, I do believe in putting out in the universe what you want. Fingers crossed and please send good energy my way. In June, it will be 10 years since I lost my job and this would be a great way to celebrate. 

I joined Corey Frye for a café chat on my first day in Paris. This is the video on Youtube if you want to take a look. We had a great time together and thank you for all of those who joined in!

Why Restaurants Have Become So Loud and How to Fight Back. This is my biggest complaint! I hate going out to noisy restaurants when I can’t hear my friends. I had this experience at a bar in Paris and I was immediately turned off and wanted to leave. 

I got a refresh on my color and my bangs trimmed. I am ready for Summer if only the weather felt the same way in Chicago. I am still wearing my Winter coat.
