Last week I spent some time with my au pair family in a ski resort in the French Alps. It was a wild time, to say the least. But I loved being able to see mountains again. The week was filled with skiing (them, not me – ha) hockey games, bowling and lots of art. There were definitely some fun moments, but overall my little introvert self was more exhausted than anything else by the time I got back. My first night back in Paris I slept 14 hours straight (after a 3 hour nap on the drive back). But overall, regardless of whether I would do it again, I was happy I went and had a fun time.
