And I'm so excited!
I've been more than a little OCD about checking all the travel websites daily, and getting my feelings hurt daily. Roundtrip Philly to Paris has been running in the high $900s, which is appalling. I didn't want cheap - I know the days of cheap, cheap airfares are behind us - but I wanted at least a price that didn't make me gag.
The other day, I got one. Drinking my morning coffee, checked the airfares, saw Philly to Paris, roundtrip, non-stop, for $630. I had to look twice to make sure I was seeing properly, and then I clicked "buy."
Of course all this excitement will be delayed, because the belated "honeymoon" that this technically is will not happen until October, but that's all right. I'm a big believer in anticipation, and the fabulousness of going back to Paris will definitely not wear off in 8 months.
I've got a major soft spot for Paris. Aside from it being freaking Paris (and what else does it need), there's the little issue of the food, the art, the food, the wine, the food and the window shopping. Plus our first trip to Paris together in 2007 was where Mario and I definitely became a couple who would end up together, so that's best of all.
And of course, there will be Paris vacation sewing, but not for a while yet.
