Paris wrap-up and a petite annoucement

We had such a fantastic time in Paris over the holidays.  Everyday was jam-packed with visits to see friends and family, and we were even able to get in a few pit-stops to some of our favorite hangouts and restaurants. As anticipated, I ate my weight in foie gras and probably did a little too much shoe shopping.

Paris was not nearly as cold this winter as the last (thank goodness!), and we even lucked out with quite a few days of sunshine.  Most of our time was spent in the city or surrounding suburbs, but we trekked out for a couple of days to Gui's grandfather's place in the almost-countryside and spent New Year's Eve with friends in Normandy.  The days flew by, though and before we knew it, we were back on a flight headed west with luggage filled to the brim and smiles on our very fatigued faces.

This visit was particularly special for Gui and me...we recently discovered that we'll be expecting our first petit bébé early this summer, so we won't be going back to Paris to visit for at least another year.  We are so unbelievably excited to add a new member to our family (and I can't wait to be a maman!), so it was such a treat to share in the excitement with Gui's family and most of our closest friends while we were in town.  Although, it's a little unreal to think that the next time we're back in that city, we'll be with a little one in tow.  C'est fou! 

As promised here are some pictures from our trip (including one with my new bump).

Best belly shot ever! I was so happy to see you during your visit here and I will be following along on your blog and waiting for news in the summer. What an exciting time for you and Gui. You guys are going to be awesome parents. Looking forward to reading many blogs... (hint, hint).

Congratulations! Nothing like that first pregnancy/birth/baby! The others are just as precious but don't quite come with the same anticipation because you are distracted with number 2 and are dreading parts of what you know are in store! So enjoy this time!
Paris has finally gotten cold. Brrrrrrr.
Kisses to Austin, please!

Congrats to you and Gui :) Was just catching up on about a month's worth of blogs and was so surprised (and delighted for you!) to read about the big news.

You make an adorable pregnant chica!

All the best for the end of your pregnancy and baby planning :)
