Oh hey everyone!

WHOA it’s been forever since I’ve been on the blog.  Time to get back into the swing of things.  I am currently working on a post about my trip to Prague–I swear I am–but in the meantime, a short little post!

First of all, current assistants who read here, how’s it going??  If I remember correctly you’re probably about in the middle of your two week break right now.  Did you all find a place to live?  How’s school going?  Are you traveling right now?

I’m spending 3 days in Paris, then early Sunday morning France time I’ll head down to Nice to get settled in my apartment. Can’t wait to see my new home!

I have a window seat with only one person next to me and they provided a pillow and blanket. Good thing, because I’m planning on sleeping all the way to Zurich! Then I have a short layover and short flight to Paris.

Pray for a safe flight!
