Already a few days into the new year, and I am finally getting to a blog post. Chéri and I had a cozy romantic celebration at home just the two fo us to ring in 2015. I made us gluten free pizza and we had a movie marathon. I honestly wasn’t in the mood for anything more than that, nor was I in any condition (at 6 months pregnant) so if you didn’t know yet now you do. Voilà! Chéri and I are going to be parents!!!
2014 was a good year for Prête-Moi Paris, one where the blog celebrated 5 years up and running!
There were restaurant invitations and testings like the Bofinger 150 year celebration.
There was cooking at Treize Bakery….
And baking at home.
There were pastries and macarons, of course. What would Prête-Moi Paris be without those! (Plus a new found tolerance to dairy!!!)
There was a fractured foot, that happened at the same time as I got pregnant, so trimester number 1 was spent mostly on crutches and a home. (A blessing in disguise really because who wants to feel nausea around posh clients?!?)
There were rooftops and sunsets galore shared with friends in starry-eyed wonder (I never get sick of those Paris skyline views or that twinkling Eiffel Tower).
There were fashion shows and outdoor strolls, to offer a lovely balance of content.
We even created our own Perfume Promenade and a Prête-Moi Paris Christmas Stroll! You can DIY them when you visit the City of Light.
It was a year full of wonderful things. And 2015 has announced itself to be even more exciting, what with a little one arriving. It will be a new perspective to see the city through the experiences of a child, and to take on the role of parent. Chéri and I are truly blessed. I hope your year has promised to be a full and as amazing as ours…
Bonne Année 2015 my dear readers!!! And in spite of all the rising horrors and tragedies in this crazy world…. at least we have Paris!
