Revealed

 
      Remember this post when I gushed about a mystery trip Husband was surprising me with for our one year anniversary? Based on the hints I had received, we all had our guesses about where we could be going... (myself included, but I refused to say it out loud so as not to jinx the romantic destination I was secretly hoping for). Well ladies, yesterday was our engagiversary and the night of the big reveal. Drumroll please...






We are jet-setting to Paris for our first wedding anniversary! Squeeeeee!!!


Husband and I made our first trip to Paris together in 2008, and I fell head over heels in love with absolutley everything about the city. The fashion, the architecture, the fine food and wine, the beauty, the romance in the air... le sigh.


When I arrived home from work last night, Husband was waiting for me with the candles lit, the dinner table set, and our wedding song playing. He spun me around the room before having me sit down and close my eyes...


When I opened them, a piece of paper was in front of me with a photo of our hotel and our flight itinerary (and a little love note from Husband written in French... I had to ask him to translate. tee hee). Isn't he tres romantic?


I am simply over the moon and cannot wait to stroll the romantic streets hand-in-hand with Husband...
Did I mention our room has a view of the Eiffel Tower? J'adore!
I have 16 days to brush up on my French, madamoiselles!
Oui, oui Audrey!

Yay! How sweet and perfect is that??? I was reading your blog the other day and thinking that I didn't know anyone who like Paris and everything about it as much as you do!!! I discovered that just by reading your blogs and look over the design-I am so happy for you!!!
