How does one have a quintessential French summer? The biggest requirement is to abandon all work and responsibilities and head for the beaches of Greece or the Côte d’Azure for the entirety of August – my version of a getaway will come later in the month. What is also typically Parisian is attending an awesome music festival, and sipping cold rosé, which I also have not done yet, since I’m a hopeless home-body. What I have been doing, however, is enjoying the pleasant weather in the form of picnics, sunbathing, and lounging on the terrasse of bars and restaurants with friends.
I also had the pleasure of (finally) meeting my new sister-in-law Cecilia. Needless to say, she was lovely and we all enjoyed our long weekend together. I’ll tell the story of the last 10 days or so in the form of pictures and captions:
I’ve had a great summer so far, even if I haven’t gotten out as much as I imagine in my Parisian-life-fantasy. My best friend is coming in only THREE WEEKS!! It’s been almost 7 months since we’ve seen each other, so we’re going to have the most epic vacation! Can’t wait to share that with you all. Until then!
