Today is my 7th Christmas in Paris and I spent it working.
Last night was spent with friends and family while today, I had to help an elderly lady prepare lunch at this posh apartment just right off the Elysées Palace and Saint Honoré. Yeah, she’s one of those richy-rich ones, but she was so sweet and nice. Even the rest of her family – her grandkids, especially – were all very, very nice.
I stayed for four hours and on top of the payment I received, she (being a designer and all) also gave me a a pink silk scarf and a huge panettone. I came home smiling and giddy.
How’s your Christmas?
