I dont shop, ever. Why? Because the rent is too damn high. The willpower to avoid Bloomingdales and Anthropologie at all costs developed as a prerequisite to move out and stay out of my parent’s basement post college.

I referenced back to my travel journal for a memory nudge: {I love it here, wishing I had more time. *Note to self: the lemon sugar crepes are amazing} March07. {Day ?? of binge drinking and no sleep. I cannot get enough of the beautiful Paris! Slept in a log cabin, went to a burlesque show} July08.

Au revoir!
