France 2010 - the Bringin' Sexy Back tour




In exactly 24 hours I will be leaving home and heading towards the airport. I can't begin to tell you how excited I am. Most of all, I am excited to see two of my favorite people, Simone and Kasey, in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. I am looking forward to the first three days exploring Paris, shopping, eating, drinking wine, and taking ENDLESS photos. I won't be bringing my laptop as it is simply one extra thing to carry that I don't want to worry about. Thus, if you want to follow three girls as they take on the city of lights, please follow me on twitter as I will be updating that often (I assume Kasey will be doing the same).







I have also given this trip a name. I haven't yet shared this with the other girls, but really, it needed to be done. Thus, from here on in, next two weeks in France shall be known as

" France 2010 - the Bringin' Sexy Back " tour.

The three of us are going to be finding our sexy in Paris - there will definitely be French lingerie shopping involved... (I have already promised me husband photos of the three of us in our lingerie having pillow fights at the hotel because really, isn't that what girls ALWAYS do when they hang out together? I feel that if I let him continue to believe that, I will get more of these girls trips away... )





Kasey and I will then head south and spend time in and around Avignon taking, yes, more photos. I have heard that it is an incredibly beautiful area and am so excited to see for myself. My second week will be spent with a friend that, while I haven't yet met her, am beside myself with excitement to spend time with! After this week, I am hoping to return home with my french skills much improved (not to mention memories that will be some of my most treasured)~

Have a marvelous two weeks mes amies - I can't wait to share all of my photos of our magical trip when I return!

I am so excited for you. Your trip with the "girls" sounds amazing! I will be taking my trip when I turn 40, I turn 39 in August so I still have a while before I go. I can't wait to hear about your trip so I can take notes and plan out the best places.

Can't imagine to wait 2 weeks before a resume of your journey!! I wish you to enjoy every single moment. I've been to Provence: Avignon, Gordes, Isle sur la Sorgue, Roussillon, fontaine de Vaucluse and Luberon, I hope you have time enough to visit these stunning places.

This Provencal Life said...

There's a great little restaurant in Avignon that I just discovered the other day with a friend. It is called La Cuisine du Dimanche and is located on rue Bonneterie near les Halles. The entrence is through a long passage lined with potted flowers and antiques. The food is fresh daily and homemade by the chef who has an artists heart. I highly recommend it. Have fun.

Farmgirl Paints said...

What an adventure. I'll just have to live vicariously through you, since I'm sure Paris is not in my future. Say hi to Kacey and Simone for me. Bon voyage:)

A Gift Wrapped Life said...

yes, and bring that sexy all the way back from Paris and then enjoy back home in the uS (atleast so your husband can enjoy it too -lol!) You may be a changed woman Kim! Have the most marvelous time with your friends and I suspect you will have plenty of laughs too. Will be thinking of you! XO

Oh Kim - I am soo excited for you and I am singing that song now too! What a wonderful name for your trip and you know ~ everything is sexy in Paris. I will not be able to follow you on Twitter as you know I do not need a new obsession, but I do hope that you will keep us posted on Facebook too. Give Simone a hug for me and make her give you one back for me! Don't forget Kasey ~ give her a squeeze for me too. Hugs and Love for a fabulous trip ~ I cannot wait to hear and see it all through your lens. xo
