the shelly chronicles

Mom's trip to Toulouse was perfection. There's really no other way to explain it. We brunched. We lunched. We shopped. We took in a few movies (Silver Linings Playbook - just do it). We dinnered. We enjoyed the sunshine. We explored new places. We laughed. We cheered as we watched the Spacer's defeat Paris. We loved on each other. A lot.

Andy: "Oh my gosh, babe. I can't believe I forgot to tell you about this woman I saw on the metro today... [insert moderately inappropriate story of unfortunately present chest hair]."

Kate: "A of all, gross; B of all, how old was she?"

Andy: "Oh, I don't know. Late twenties/early thirties."

pellands in paris

These babes made the long trek from Chicago to Europe to visit us over the New Year holiday. After many connecting flights, they arrived in Toulouse tired but excited for the week to come.
