A Little Announcement

Hi-Hi, Friends!

Today I have a bit of very exciting (ah, well, exciting for me) news to share with you all… a little something I’ve been hinting at for a while both here on Lace & Lilacs and on various interweb social media sites.

In less than a month…

I. Am. Moving. To Paris.

I’ll be attending an art college, studying for a photography degree, over the course of four years. And I intend to share much of my journey in this ‘lil space. Also, I completely understand that this isn’t that big of a deal, particularly to to those who live and work in France at the moment… namely, the French. However, this opportunity previously seemed so far out of reach to me. Apologies if I gush a little. 😉

I would like to thank everyone for being so supportive of me and my dreams… from my parents to you, my readers, who always leave the sweetest, most thoughtful comments on my blog.

Many more posts and updates are soon to come.

Sending so much ♥,

    Being a brand new reader here, I am thrilled that you will be living in Paris! Thrilled for you, of course. And thrilled for me too! 🙂 Because I will be following along with all which you share with us, here.

    Some years ago, my husband and I spent 8 amazing days in Paris. I Net-knew a couple of people there. And we met with both of them. One young man met with us 3 times, and showed me the “real Paris,” which he knew I wanted to see. We were so lucky!!!!!

    Needless to say, I am thrilled to know of your blog, and look forward to your adventures.

    On and I know another blogger, who had a French vacation also. I must tell her. I’m sure she will love to follow and accompany you, too.

    Lots and lots of gentle hugs,

      Thank you so much, Tessa, you’re so sweet! I’m happy to hear that you’ll be following along. 🙂
      Isn’t Paris just such a beautiful city? It’s wonderful that you were able to see the “real Paris” on your trip! I’ve visited twice, but didn’t know any Parisians there either time and am so looking forward to straying away from the more touristy areas and exploring like a local.
      xoxo! <3
