Over the weekend, we found our apartment for when we will go to live in Paris! It took us forever, but the place is beautiful and really quite big - big enough for five people to live in comfortably. All I know is that it's near the Jardin du Luxembourg and it has a piano and fireplaces, though they probably don't work.
I'm having visions of fires in my bedroom on cold nights, of my brother's Chopin nocturnes floating out over the city, of long runs in the park on mornings when barely anyone is up, though perhaps you can't really wear leggings and a windbreaker outside in super-glamourous Paris, even in the very early mornings. I'm so excited! Does anyone have any advice for what to take - or leave behind? Advice for what we should do in the six months we live there? Please let me know!
