Hey mes petits dreamers,

Today I discovered Julie.  It was an extra special day for me after yesterday’s lull.  Do you know why?  Because I’ve made my first fabulous lady friend!

I was actually a bit anxious before meeting up with her.  We’d never met, so it felt kind of like an awkward blind date.  FYI, I don’t usually date women (but hey, never say never #YOLO) – but today was a date of a different variety.

I had asked Julie (a young actress here in Paris) via the inter web if she would be open to meeting up to take a few snaps and talk about her own story of getting lost in the right direction.  Receiving my message could have been seen as somewhat random, but Julie is totally cool and accepted my invitation without hesitation. Yay for me.

However, since I am only one person and I also need to wash my hair tonight, you’ll have to wait for my pretty pics of Julie in the amazing Parc Des Buttes Chaumont and also her inspiring story.


Make up: Julie doesn’t need make up #jelly
Hair: Same as above #doublejelly
Wardrobe: Julie is Parisian. Please.

Oh, and P.S., I did message that cute guy last night.  He responded YES.  Of course he said yes.  He’s a man.  We plan to meet up next week.  I’m already nervous.  

Let’s worry about that later, for now I’m just super excited to share more about Julie with you very soon.

Still getting lost in the right direction.
