The last 30 days…

January 12, 2011

It has been over a month since I have written a post.

In the last month or so, I visited with my sister, Michelle, who came from Orlando. Traveled to Geneva and spent the Christmas holiday with my cousin Celeste and her family. Enjoyed the beautiful snow in Paris by riding in the Dominiale de Verrières Forest. Started networking and job searching in earnest. Revised my CV a dozen times. Applied for positions at OECD, LVMH, Dell abd YouTube. Celebrated the end of 2010 and the beginning of 2011 in Burgundy with Malik and his family. Spent time with Jesse Bond during his first trip to Paris.

Here are some photos which reminds me that I feel like a princess in France.

Apparently, the part about my hopes for 2011 did not get included, which are to find permanent work that allows me to live in Paris, to continue to improve my French and wake up each day with a grateful heart.

May you realize your heart’s desire.

Bonne année,

    Hi Christi, I loved the pictures of you “new” life. Those were some amazing prawns and I can see why you feel like a princess since you have access to a golden toilet. I miss you. Take care!!

    Remember we met on the cab drive from the Airport back in October? You were just arriving and we were in Paris for 10 days for our 35th Anniversary.

    So are you still located in Montmarte and how is the job search going?

    Good luck and I love reading your blog…
