Coffee in Paris: Jozi Café

This is a very overdue coffee shop post. Jozi Cafe has been open for about two years and has really blossomed in that time. It's become a go-to spot for my husband and myself, and is located about halfway down a street between the Pantheon and Marché Maubert (where you will find the BEST CROISSANT) in Paris.

DIY Maternity Shoot

I would really love to hire a professional photographer to take maternity and newborn photos for us  because I appreciate having someone with an artistic eye behind the camera. Unfortunately, it's not in our budget, but back in July I rented a nice camera for a friend's wedding.  Since I didn't have to return it for a couple of days, I asked my husband to take some pictures of me and then we set a self timer and took pictures of ourselves for a DIY maternity shoot.  I think he/we did pretty well.

California to Paris

Oh to travel with your girlfriends. I really wish I had planned to do something like this with my friends when I was in college...there was that one time I took a trip to Southern California, but that kind of seems like nothing compared to a trip to Europe with your besties!  What a dream. I love these photos and how you almost feel like you've stepped back in time...minus the combat boots of course ;)

Where to Get Donuts in Paris

Last year, for the 4th of July, my family and I did the most American thing we could think to do in Paris: We went out for gourmet donuts to the ONLY place, in the entire city, that has decent donuts. I'm not being overly dramatic.  And if anyone knows of another decent donut shop; please, oh, please, oh, please do tell!

le futur simple

uggggh. Conjugation.  I thought I was done with conjugating verbs after I quit taking Spanish my freshman year of HIGH SCHOOL. but here we are again.  In another language. In another country...which, honestly, makes it way more motivating for me to learn them.  It's now a necessity. Though certainly not any less..."makes-me-wanna-bang-my-head-against-a-wall"
