Bonne année...

Eiffel tower nyeve Champagne and the Champs-Elysées, here we come... we're off to Paris for New Year's Eve (or la Saint-Sylvestre as they say in France)!!! 

So when you see the fireworks over the Eiffel Tower on the news, my sis Jen, Russ, Wayne, Bill, another friend Steve and I will be in that crowd somewhere toasting each other "Bonne Année" french for Happy New Year and more than likely getting a little toasted ourselves.

I go armed with my high school French, my red heels (I caved) and my Top 10 Paris guidebook. The last time I visited the city of lights, I was in college, I was there 36 hours and my budget was like $20. After spending most of it to get in to the Louvre to see the Mona Lisa, I could only afford to stand outside historic spots with admission fees. This time, I'm going in!

I have a feeling, this new year's trip may top all the others. I'll let you know when I get back on Jan. 4.

In the meantime... Bonne Année to you and best wishes for a happy and healthy 2009!!!
