After this post, I’m finally caught up!
Last week, I registered on LiveMocha to practice my French. So far I am surprised by how much I remember!
On Friday, I happened to glance at my phone on my drive home from work & Sarah Stevenson was calling me! We decided to grab dinner at Oregano’s. As always, it was so fun to see her! I may be chaperoning one of her 8th grade class’s field trips in March 🙂
On Saturday, after my time with Sunny & my stew experiment, I booked Mom and I’s flights to Europe! We arrive in Paris about 9AM on the 10th & then land back in Phoenix (from Berlin) at about 9PM on the 26th. Over the next few weeks, we’ll nail down the itinerary. Fortunately I have some friends I can go to for advice on some of the places I am less familiar with. First, my coworker Reina & her husband, John, just took a honeymoon trip through Europe, hitting up Italy & Switzerland, so I for sure need a list of their “must-visits!” (Especially in Switzerland because her pics were insanely gorgeous.) John also told me he has been everywhere else we’re going, so I should just send him a list of how long we’ll be where, and he’ll help us out. Then, lastly, I have my buddy Jean-Michel, who I met at an Intel Involved event. (He works in ISG, in the Broad Market division– my new group!!) Jean-Michel is from France and still owns seven vacation properties there that he rents out. I will definitely be hitting him up for tips, too!
Oh, and I just realized– I have friends in Germany (Matthias) and Prague (Palo), that I can hit up too. I would love to catch up with “German Matt,” seeing as I haven’t seen him since junior year of high school, when he studied abroad here!
That’s all for now….I think…. 🙂
