It has been one crazy week! Pre-sale for calendars launched on Tuesday. 🥳 Thank you so much to each and every person that has placed a calendar order. I am so grateful for your support of my small business and the blog. In case you missed it, there are three calendars this year! A small Paris one just like last year, a larger Paris calendar that is 8x5x11″ and a small Italy calendar that was requested by so many of you after my holiday in Italy. The pre-sale price ends on Monday at midnight.
The same day of pre-sale, I decided to take on a big painting project at home. The painters were here all week and will return next week for one final day. The place is finally coming together. I am currently writing from my new desk in the new location with a window view. I feel like a modern Carrie Bradshaw.
I am just two weeks away from Paris. It feels so crazy to know that the dream of returning to France is so soon. I am prepping behind the scenes planning away and I have been trying to order new Fall clothes to pack. I will share more on that soon!
