Bonjour ! There's a little more than 32 hours until I'm home. And right now, I'm feeling every single thing one could possibly could.
this retour. I'm not just going home for the holidays (or another occasion). I'll be living in New York, in my parents' house, for the longest period of time since I left. Yay, family and friends, and the city, and this research! But I'm not at all excited to miss coffee dates (etc.) with my community here. Nor Paris itself. In spite of our complicated and often frustrating relationship, it's nestled its way into my heart forever and always. I'm not ready to say goodbye. Thankfully, I don't have to. I'm coming back. I'm coming back after two seemingly very significant months at home. Dramatic. Here's to hoping all goes well. Up, up, and away I go.
