“Paris is most beautiful when one is about to leave it.”
~ 1945, Robert Brasillach, executed French Nazi collaborator
Yup. that’s right. Consider this my official internet announcement of my big move. In 24 hours, this Chickicus Northamericus is going home.
After almost half a decade as an expat American in Paris, I am finally moving on to the next phase of my life. And I am happy to say that I will be starting completely anew in Washington, D.C.
I still have a few untold stories and musings about man-shopping in Paris to share with you all, so I expect to crank those posts out when I touch down in the States. But after that, this is blog is going to go all-American.
I suppose that means that I’ll have to change the header of this blog to Man-shopping in D.C….
Paris has taken me on a long, eventful roller coaster ride, with its high points, low points and brain-pulverizing upside-down bits. There has been much frustration and heartbreak, but there have also been lifelong friendships and beautiful moments that have more than made up for it.
If I can survive these past five years, I can survive anything. In fact, I will triumph. D.C., I dare you to stop me.
Stay tuned, dear readers.
