cocoandvera 's Thoughts:

I am sitting on the floor of my living room in le Marais, surrounded by halfway packed suitcases, as I begin to write this very bittersweet post – it is the last one that I will author in the French capital. By the time it is published, I will be on a plane to Reykjavik at the beginning of my week-long journey back to Vancouver. This past year has been an experience that defies descriptions conveyed by conventional adjectives… I have lived a dream that I cherished as a fifteen-year-old who felt trapped by the limited possibilities of her prairie hometown. The great tragedy of dreams is that although they can come true, it is rare that they prove to be as wonderful as you imagined when they do – but Paris has been the stuff of fairytales, a picturesque romp filled with macarons and champagne that has seen me land the writing job that I have covetted for so long. But like all dreams, this one has to come to an end, and today is that day. There are many things I am looking forward to it Canada – some of them very personal {like reconnecting with my friends and family after a long absence that has undoubtedly changed them as much as it has changed me} and some of them less so. This is my blog, so I am free to admit that I am looking forward to Canadian shopping, in particular stocking up on silk blouses from Aritzia, denim from Holt Renfrew, dresses from Simon’s and shoes from The Room at The Bay. Before any of that, though, I want to thank-you all for sharing this incredible journey with me. I may not know the details of my next adventure just yet, but I know that there will be one and I’m so thrilled and grateful to know you’ll be a part of it. Sending much love from Paris, Cee.
