Ever since the weather got just a little brisker last week, I've been breaking out my go-to scarves and buying overpriced hot chocolate at Columbus Café more often. As I write this post, I'm listening to the always classic "It's Beginning To Look A lot Like Christmas" by Michael Bublé. But the thing is, it doesn't really look or feel like Christmas in France. I never realized why the concept of a White Christmas was so enticing, until now, when I have yet to see snow this year and it's already December 7th! That's definitely not the norm in America. After shooting these pictures with Heather and going into town to do some Christmas shopping, I guess I was really feeling the chilly weather and I actually said, "I love Fall!!!" But then Heather snapped me back to the reality that we are actually on the verge of winter. Apparently, this is the coldest France gets (around 40 degrees Fahrenheit), which is nothing compared to the East coast blizzards.
And while it may still feel like early Fall in France, with the leaves still visible in the Parc Du Thabor and skirts + tights still a daily option, Christmas break is in just less than two weeks. Sunday of next week, I'll be boarding a train to Paris all by myself, probably coffee, magazine, and camera in hand, headed to what is practically the headquarters for France, as we've learned in Politics class. I'm so glad to be finally going there, because it seems like a lot of my classmates have found ways to get there since when we landed September, but thankfully it is almost break and I myself get to spend quite some time there. If I haven't mentioned this already, I'm also going to Disneyland Paris for a part of break, which I'm pretty stoked about. Mickey, shopping, Christmas décor, France, and family? Couldn't get any better.
P.S. Nothing says fall like that last leave throwing pic; am I right ladies?! Well, I'm off to watch The Polar Express- I hope you guys enjoyed this post and that y'all are doing well! xoxo Isabelle
