Thank Goodness for Apple

If you are just joining this blog, Welcome! I'm so glad you are here! Let me get you up to speed and introduce some of the key players around here.

Me...oh hi! You can pop over a read that fun little "about me" section but if that just takes too much effort I will tell you myself. I'm a 24 year old California girl who picked up and moved to Paris to study French pastry. Yep, its awesome.

This is Mike. He is the coolest person I know (besides myself, obviously) and he is the love of my life. We were living in the beachy town of Pacific Beach in San Diego before Paris came into the picture. Now he is living in Colorado and holding down the fort until I get home. I miss him like crazy. Want to know more? Read the "us" section. Visiting Paris April 19.

This is Taylor. The world's cutest dog. No, I'm not lying, she is cuter than them all. We picked her up at a little rescue and no we don't know what type of dog she is. She is the fastest on the beach and a great cuddle buddy. I miss my little muffin!

Meet the Campbell Clan. A bunch of crazies, I tell you. Also the best family in the known universe. Ryan, Jenna, Mom, Dad, Me, Brandon and of course, Boomer! Visiting Paris June 10.

There are a lot of other important friends and family (you know who you are!!). You will just have to come back and meet them later, as they come into play. For now, I'll introduce you to those wonderful ones who are coming all the way to Paris this year. I can't wait!!

Okay, back to regular scheduled rambling...

If it wasn't for my iPhone, iPad and Macbook (yes, I am Appled out) I don't know what I would do. If I had decided to do this whole "move to Paris" thing a few years back, I don't think I would have made it!

Thanks to the pure genius of Steve Jobs I am able to communicate and "see" my friends and family back home and they are able to actually "see" where I am, my apartment, the city. If I only had e-mail or snail mail....ugh! I can't imagine! haha, spoiled tech generation.

Mike and I (and Tay!) get to facetime everyday. Taylor just seems extremely confused by it all. She can hear my voice but has NO clue where it's coming from and just looks around like "umm...wtf?!" I love our virtual hang time and waking up to e-mails from him since he is going to sleep when I am waking up for school. It's the little things that make my freezing cold morning soo much better.

Of course, the internet is not the same. I miss them, my family, his family and my friends so much! Okay, let me clarify that this does not mean that I don't like being in Paris or anything of the sort! I've said a million times how much I love this city and am I so lucky to be here! But that doesn't mean I don't miss the people most important to me! I think now is a good time to start the countdown.. 39 days until Miguel arrives in Paris!! AH! :)

I am thinking you are all missing the true star of this blog. It has been a while since she has made an appearance...
little muffin! As cute as ever keeping warm in Colorado.


  1. Oh how I love this...It's so apparent how you love the people in your life and yet just how much you love your dreams! You are an inspiration my dear girl. So happy you have supportive family and friends and a true partner in Mike. It will make this journey you are on all the more rewarding. Keep up the hard work, your treats are looking wonderful. And like I said I will gladly be a taste tester when you return to the states! Much love, Lex

  2. You are so adorable. I love that we're still so connected from so far away!! Also, love the new tabs and the "merci" for comments.


Merci Beaucoup!
