Bye Everyone

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I am packing things up and it is tough. I stand out as it is in France being that I am tall and pale. But, Gore-Tex, ripped jeans and musty sweaters make the "sore thumb sticking out" issue even worse. Even in the best restaurants in Seattle, no one looks at you twice if you are in rumpled jeans and a pilled sweater. In fact, you get stared at if you are wearing anything but.

So I bought some nice slacks. They are lined and everything. Also, I bought a couple of nice sweaters. I am not even bringing my ripped jeans and they will be missed.

Off we go to Paris! We will have an apartment and Lucas has orders to find us a Christmas goose to cook. We'll see!
