Paris! One Step Closer!!

"Just remember when a dream appears, you belong to me."
-"You Belong to me" - 1952 song

On this blistery, cold, snowy Friday in south eastern New York state I worked from home and remembered a promise I made to myself last April. Well, I accidentally kicked over the big Poland Spring water gallon jug I had been placing all my extra coins in since last April and it jogged my memory. A trip to Paris, France!  I promised myself that my best friend and I will go to Paris for our 30th's birthdays and I'm still on my way to fulfilling that promise!

Slowly but surely I've been dropping all my spare change into a tiny Old Navy Halloween piggie bank and then dumping it into the Poland spring bottle...Well I was quite surprised how much it came too without really trying. 

In 8 months, I absentmindedly saved $215!! I was barely trying and I couldn't be happier with the lil chunk of change I have to somehow stash away from myself so I don't spend it. I know I can't go to Paris on $200 from New York but it's a step closer to having at least spending money when I'm there! 

At least a year and half left until I go...I know I can add to that lil total! I can't wait to see the Eiffel Tower, go to Louvre, visit the lil pastry shops, visit Notre Damme, visit Ahh there is going to be wayy too much too see!! I can't wait!!

Have a great weekend! I'm going to dream of Paris...*Dreaming*
