Week 24 – Organizing an Ancient Rome themed barbecue week-end

To celebrate the surprisingly persistent hot weather that has invaded Paris this Summer (in the sense that in July & August the weather is generally changing and can become unexpectedly rainy and cold at any moment), I decided to throw a big “Ancient Rome” themed party in my grandmother’s old country house.

The good news is, the 52 Weeks Challenge is in fact pushing me to look for new subjects and start or pursue new activities every week.

Week 4 – Dream Job, Next Exit

It took me some time to be sure I was not going through some temporary crisis but that I actually needed the change.
