Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy V-Day, everyone!  Or as they say here, bonne fete de St. Valentin!  I was surprised that they celebrate Valentine’s Day here, because I always thought of it as a more American holiday, but they definitely do.  There have been plenty of dinner specials posted, giveaways and events advertised, and valentine cards and gifts in the stores.

Fittingly enough, I welcome another visitor to Nice today: my boyfriend!  Yes, he’s getting in on Valentine’s Day.  Yes, it’s oh-so-romantic.  No, we did not plan it that way!  It just happened… a happy accident, haha.  I’m a bit more on top of my game today than the day before my parents came; I actually have some blog posts written and queued up to post over the next few weeks!  I decided to take this opportunity to share a series of posts intended to help those who are going to be assistants in France next year.

I have five posts written so far: cell phones, power adapters/converters, how to pack, teaching private English lessons, and finding an apartment/roommate.   I also plan on writing one about getting a bank account and bus pass but I’m not sure when that will happen.  I hope these posts will be helpful to future assistant; however, it also means that they will most likely be pretty boring to the majority of my regular readers (my friends and family back home)!  So if you disappear for a few weeks, I won’t be offended.  Regularly scheduled posting will resume the second week of March!
I’m going to close with a photo that I snapped yesterday when a friend I were walking along the water by the port.  It seems especially fitting for today, Valentine’s Day!  Now go show some love.
