Liz Leaves for Paris
I left work a bit early today, to meet up with Liz at the Blue Line. This may be news to some, but she is heading off to Paris for two weeks (and I’m staying in Chicago).
Each year, DePaul selects a number of employees who then get to travel to Paris and learn more about Saint Vincent de Paul, the university’s namesake. There, they travel and become more familiar with de Paul’s history and legacy, and learn more about the university’s mission.
It’s a great opportunity – and a really exciting trip! Sadly, significant others aren’t allowed to go, as this is primarily a work-related event. So while she’s off travelling and touring, it is technically all work related.
It’ll be nearly two weeks until she returns. We were talking this weekend about the time we’ve been apart from one another, and this seems to be the longest in memory (since before we were dating/married).

As I was here, I was reminded of T, who was kind enough to let us know that we looked happy to her.

I’ve had the good fortune to travel to Paris twice so far (once for our honeymoon and again just last year). While I know a large portion of the trip will be for her work, I’m still super excited she gets to go on this adventure. Looking forward to seeing her photos.
