Off to Paris and Petite Palais

My son Michael and his lovely fiancee Becky have decided to get married..... IN PARIS!!
They will have the ceremony there and then have to come back to Canada to do the legal bits but we are so excited nevertheless! 

Having never traveled before and not being fluent in the language, they confessed to being more than a little nervous. Andrew, my husband and I have been to and LOVE Paris so when they asked if we would tag along we didn't hesitate in saying yes. So there you have it, I am off to Paris again!!!  I am so excited to see my first child tie the knot and I can't think of anything more romantic than Paris in the spring.  

I really don't expect that I will be much help with the language barrier as I seem to only have the ability to suss out French when it is written and don't understand much Parisian French when it is being spoken to me. Oh, well, at least I can stop him from ordering Cuisses de grenouille (frog legs) or Lapin (bunny rabbit) so that is important.  Becky is vegan, gluten free and non-dairy so yikes, it will be hard finding appropriate meals for her.

Anyhow, I just received my new dollhouse kit from Petite Properties, it is the first in their dollhouse series and oh so French, La Petite Palais.  It is so pretty but I can't start it until I have finished my small-time miniatures French townhouse.  The rate in which I am acquiring projects vastly exceeds the rate in which I am finishing them but I am planning on having a long and productive old age though so it is all good.
