New Video of Moi & An Update :)

Hi all! Laura just finished making a video compilation of various pictures of me. I thought that I'd share it here, since the pictures *are* of me. It's pretty cute and set to one of favorite French songs, "Ma Jeunesse" by Carla Bruni (the French-Italian singer/songwriter who just happens to be France's First Lady!).

Anyway, let me know what you think, and if your owner/mother/big person has a Youtube account, go ahead and friend Laura's account (if they haven't already). 

Her link is here.

In other news, I took a trip to California last week! I went with Mrs. Jeanette and her friend Kathrine (from Denmark!) on their trip to AGPLA and other sites around Los Angeles. Kathrine and I had never visited California before, so it was a treat for both of us--and Kathrine got herself a new girl so I had someone to get to know on the trip back to Utah.  

OH and the best news is that I got to meet Mrs. Sheila and her girls (yup, including Bossy Amanda)  in Corona, CA as well--Laura's very, very jealous of that! She's been to California herself, but only once, despite having family in Ojai and a mother who grew up on the Central Coast. 

Pictures will be posted if/when Mrs. Jeanette posts them on AGFans.

La Jour de la Bastille :)

Well, not that I'm home to celebrate it, but...


Usually my family likes to celebrate the holiday ensemble and sometimes we'll watch the fireworks like these done over La Tour Eiffel...

Meeting Violet!

Salut mes amis,

If you've read Violet's latest blog entry, you'll know that Violet and I finally got to meet this past Saturday (6/27) at the annual Utah AGFans meet-up. :)

<--- Since coming to FHSG in December 2006, I've heard many good things about Violet. Of course, Lindsey never fails to remind me about how much more she liked Violet than me, but hey, after hearing so much about the girl who looked similar to me AND loved to travel just as much (or maybe more?) as I did, I wanted to meet her for myself.

When Mrs. Jeanette offered to host me, I knew that maybe I'd have the chance of seeing Violet. After all, Mrs. Jeanette's house is a heck of a lot closer to Violet's house than my school in Virginia! ;)

So Ruthie (she's traveling like me!) and I headed off to the meet-up on Saturday--both of us feeling nervous yet excited. My nervousness subsided though when I saw Violet, and we started talking. We chatted about Violet's adventures with her best friend Inky (okay, I'd love to meet Inky one day, too), about how much Violet wants to visit Paris (and me? go back!), etc.

Twins! Well, sort of. I now know why my classmate Isabel never wants to leave her best friend Susanna's side!

Group photo of us and some of the other girls in attendance:

*sigh* That really was a great day. Maybe we can see each other again someday? :)
