Hello everyone! I’m actually also sneaking this post on to my An Alien Parisienne Wordpress blog via my Posterous account, someplace I experiment now and again with events and publicity about events in Paris.
I wanted to let you know about an article I have written as a guest over at the AnyTrip blog.
AnyTrip is a London-based, budget-travel, online booking agency, and while I have not yet used their services, I am really impressed with the way they contacted me to be a guest writer for their site, and impressed with what they offer at their site. Many other terrific bloggers and writers have also participated in doing articles for this month’s Love Paris Giveaway. There are four chances this September to win a trip to Paris with AnyTrip’s Love Paris giveaway. For each prize, AnyTrip will set you and a friend up with a two-night stay at a Paris hotel, an activity, and £150/€170 in travel vouchers for the return trip to Paris.
For information on how to enter as well as the terms and conditions, visit the AnyTrip Love Paris post.
You have until September 30 to enter, so hustle on over to the site!
For some juicy personal news, please keep reading!
As far as my personal news, I have been horribly lax writing on my main blog (it has been over a month since I posted about the Katia and Kyliemac podcastiversary, I realize). Since returning from the hinterlands of Canada, Paul and I returned to Paris and a couple of weeks after that… got married on September 9. That’s right: I am now Mrs. Paul Prescott!

This month we also jumped into the rentrée (French for “re-entry” but it connotes the back-to-work, back-to-school, re-entering of “real life” post-vacation), and as I’m sitting here, typing, I’m thinking to myself, “REALLY? It is the end of September already? NO WAY.” But indeed, here we are.
I have thoughts and hopes of blogging more regularly. I look all the time at the newest WordPress themes, and think about how I have had numerous people ask me to unclude their links for their Paris-based travel/information/lodging/expat-connections, and how I really ought to get that going. But somehow, up until this week, I have felt re-entry resistance: my brain has been stuck back at that wonderful lake in Northern Ontario.
I have, however, been posting to my Facebook page, my Google Plus page, and Twitter when I have not been posting at WordPress or Posterous (or even Tumblr… jeebus, just how many blogs and social networks can a girl belong to, eh?). Please do connect to me at one of those places to keep up with me in the quieter times on my blog(s). Or, oh yeah: Goodreads, too (I am woefully behind on it as well right now, though).
I hope this post finds you all well and settled quite nicely into another autumn season!
Over & out.

Wow, you dropped some fabulous news on us there–congratulations! That is a stunning wedding photo of you guys. And it’s by another Karin with an “i”! 🙂 She does great work and you both look so happy. That lake shot from your honeymoon is lovely as well. And remember the origin of the word “honeymoon” … so a month without blogging and “re-entry” problems are perfectly normal! 😉 Finally, that will be a lucky ducky who wins the trip to Paris! Anyone would want to insert themselves into your sweet photo with the boats (which I now see has the first hint of your news with its watermark!) and everything else that Paris has to offer!
Congratulations again, dear! Hugs,
