Random Tuesday: Frowning Flower Girl FTW

Random Tuesdays

I’m sure you’ve also seen the most epic photograph to come out of the Royal Wedding. It’s the only dose I got from the ceremony, and it more than encapsulates how I, and I’m sure countless others, felt about the big fuss.

Move over Kate, here is the girl everyone’s cheering at the moment:

The face is just so priceless it’s sparked a series of edits, some seriously hilarious! Enjoy!

Paris, je t’aime

Musings

When I say Paris…

Think Parisian reunions in royal gardens.

Think too much wine and entirely too much cheese.

Think a hangover or two.

Think 700 steps to the top of the Eiffel Tower (saved us €9)

Think buildings you fall in love with.

Think beautiful sounds you try to emulate.

Think that you’re really set to have a good time.

It was for a brief 2.5 days, but we met with some old friends who travelled halfway across the globe to find us. It was the kind of experience I thought I could only dream about. I even dished out my rusty French and much to my surprise, managed to carry a crippled conversation here and there. Since then, my new goal is to retouch on my French, and once I get my feet together, I’ll give the French Embassy a call and see if I can find myself a conversation partner, s’il vous plait.

Here are a few of my favorites.
