Three years ago this month I started writing about life as an American graduate student in Paris. It was primarily a way for me to share my experiences abroad with family, friends, and anyone who happened to stumble upon this blog, but it also gave me an opportunity to combine two of my favorite activities: writing and talking about French stuff. Not to mention the blog's handy use as a travel time capsule - I still enjoy reading old posts from the spring and summer of 2008.
Since those glorious six months spent jetting around La Belle France, Parisian Spring and I have left Paris, lived in Brussels and New York City, and settled back into life in Washington, DC. I recently accepted a job with the U.S. Foreign Service, and will likely be heading overseas again sometime this year. Parisian Spring, however, will not be joining me.
I've decided that this blog has run its course. It accomplished what I want it to accomplish - chronicling my time in Paris - and it even managed to last two and a half years longer than I thought it would. It's time to move on to the next adventure, and whether or not it too will be blogged, it doesn't belong on Parisian Spring.
To everyone who read, commented, shared, critiqued, and enjoyed this blog, I thank you. Mille fois.
