Au Revoir

In a few short hours I will be on a plane heading to Paris. I can't believe it is finally here! We are all very excited and a little nervous. The kids and I made lists this morning of everyone we needed to shop for and bring goodies home to. Which made me think about what souvenirs we would be bringing home for ourselves. I have a few small collections that we have started already:

 Coffee mugs are always fun and you can usually pick them up at the airport so there is no real lugging around...and I like something that is actually useful and brings back memories when it's in use.

 Snow globes, although very kitschy, are a lot of fun.
My personal souvenir collection is from Paris. Both times I have been before I picked up a commemorative Swatch watch. One a map of the city, the other a route of the #12 metro line, which was the one we took the most because we have always stayed in Montmartre. Swatch watches were the bomb when I was growing up! But they kind of fizzled out in the 90s. Now you can find them again a few places but nothing like they used to be (do you remember the jelly guards you could add). I really, really hope that they have another one this time.
If you have any other good ideas for souvenirs, let me know! Talk to you guys next week!
