Moxie girl...




I am going to be traveling.



Not right now..mind you. But i am headed somewhere in April....



and i can hardly stand to wait.



You see...this place where i am headed is a place



that i have been yearning to go....



dreaming.....



and now it's really happening...



We are so tight on funds....but my sweet husband told me....



i want you to be able to go.....it's an early christmas gift.



Don't worry...he was well thanked.



Even though i wish it was him that i was traveling



with...to experience this place with....to peruse...



there is just no way that we can both afford to go...



so i shall travel alone.




Alright...not really alone.....



because i plan on meeting up with some wonderful girls.



I will meet up with Kimberly in the South ....and



finally meeting Simone.....and hopefuly...



my fingers are crossed...



the lovely Vicki...


My family will be eating ramen noodles every night for the next


few months.....


and the nice people at walmart will get to know me by name...


yes..you read that right....


walmart...here i come.....


and i will be brewing my own coffee....


because i will be saving my pennies for a real


latte .....


sorry my beloved starbucks.....


i shall miss my daily skinny vanilla's.




...my dream is not a dream anymore....



I am heading to France.



xo


p.s. if you happen to have a second home in france...that needs to be


fluffed....the windows opened....then call me....i'd be happy to help!

..and the new song playing..."fly me away" by Annie little.

mimi charmante said...

so so so very excited and counting the days... I think it will feel more *real* when we have our tickets booked!
a little break from anthro will be so very worth it when we are perusing the markets in the south of france!

Martha said...

Oh how exciting Kasey!!! I thought a trip may be in store...but when you painted your bathroom I thought you may be saying you were moving to the farmhouse...and saving your pennies for that...but a trip to France...that is so worth it...and how fun that will be for you...can't wait to see all the wonderful treasures you bring home...well if you can okay extra baggage charges right? just kidding I know the pictures will be fab and can't wait to see the beautiful pictures!

Kasey,
What a wonderful gift...a trip to France in the spring! Oh, la, la!
If you're serious about an apartment to stay in while in Paris (4 nite minimum) at a fantastic price, visit
http://www.chloes-paris-apartment.com/ It comes highly recommended by a friend (Lee - My French Chateau in Atlanta).
Cheers,
Cheryl

Wendy @ The Shabby Nest said...

Congratulations my dear! And you're going to love this...my l'il sis Holly is friend with Annie Little. Yep! Went to high school with her. They're tight. Well, maybe not tight, but they are friends. So now I'm famous, right?

oh, and that reminds me, I had a sitter Saturday while we went to see my Princess in her Nutcracker debut, and when I got back my sister asked me where she could buy my Lola B's CD because it was so great! You don't suppose I could get one for her.

And I'm very jealous of your Christmas gift, by the way!

Wendy @ The Shabby Nest said...

Okay, that was supposed to say "my sitter asked me where she could buy my Lola B's CD" not my sister. ;-)

Lemonade Makin' Mama said...

One Womans Thoughts said...

I am obsessed with things French at the moment. It all seems so delightfully sensual, romantic and of small indulges. Blessings to your husband, he will be traveloing with you, in love, he is always in your heart, so as you go, he goes.

Have a wonderful time and please share upon your return.
