The next adventure ...

We decided to try and start the process of buying an apartment in Paris. We may have to start a whole new blog for that one! We contacted the property finding service--run by Adrian Leeds, whom Mary met in Paris at a Living/Working in Paris conference a few years ago. Adrian is an absolute expert in buying Paris properties, and we trust her to help us.

We are planning a trip to Paris in March, and we're having our first consultation with Adrian by phone next week. Wish us luck!

Mary and Rachel are venturing into Brooklyn tomorrow (Mary is taking the day off). Rachel wants to show Mom some fun vintage stores in Williamsburg, a very hip and trendy section of Brooklyn. Looking forward to it! We'll try to remember to take the camera along and post some photos afterwards.

Meanwhile, the apartment is coming along, albeit slowly. We may go look at some tile this weekend for the kitchen backsplash. The lighting is almost in place. No resolution to the granite snafu yet, which is disappointing. But we're just moving ahead. We're planning a housewarming party for the first week of March sometime, so the clock is ticking!
