Travelling at twenty

I may have forgotten to mention that I turned 20 one week ago. I had a wonderful birthday and celebrated it with my sweet boyfriend, who spoiled me rotten. We had my favorite food for dinner: sushi. I got some of my favorite treats and some classics as a gift:
And we went to the movies to see Silver Linings Playbook. The movie was great, definitely recommended!
I may or may not have mentioned before that my mom had told me she was planing my birthday gift since SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER last year. Needless to say, I’ve been dying of curiosity. Two weeks before my birthday I got my first hint:
Feel free to tell me if you got it at this point, because I definitely did not. A week later I got my second hint, a word: pastry. Nope, still didn’t get it. So I started to move on with my day, getting ready for work when the thought popped in my head. Oh no, did I know? Had I ruined the surprise? Did I say something? Or just try to act surprised? I kind of freaked out and decided I had to tell my mom what I thought it was. She logged on to skype and turned on the camera. I asked if croissant could have been an alternative hint to pastry. She looked around and said: “uuuh, oui”.
So to celebrate me having turned 20, and my dad having turned 40 this past November, the entire family + Paul will be going to Paris in the end of January! This was such an awesome, wonderful birthday present! I’ve always wanted to go to Paris, hence why I took 5 years of french classes in middle school/high school. Finally that dream will come true and I can’t even begin to explain how excited I am! Get ready, I see a Paris-pictured post coming up in the near future!!
