On the insistence of my boyfriend...

who appears to be more invested in this blog than me*: I am back in the States for now, I will return to France temporarily sometime this spring and for all future vacations, the permanent move will be coming in the next year or so. I will no longer be posting or moderating comments, except for when I am back in France [edit/update: or feel like writing about French stuff].

Thank you to all who have read or commented on this blog and I hope new visitors enjoy the archives. (A good starting point is the index.)


*Our conversation this morning:
Boyfriend: Hey, how come you haven't posted on your blog?
Etienne: Umm, I'm not in France anymore and that blog was about Paris.
B: That's so sad. I really liked it.
E: Awww aren't you sweet.
B: Then you need to say goodbye. For the people who read it.
E: It's just a blog. Why do you care so much? You never even wrote that post about Segolene Royal for me!
B: But they need to know!
E: Fine.


EDIT: 3 quick things even though I promised no posting from the US. 1) I was forced to go Beta when I wanted to moderate comments; it appears that things have remained as they were, thank goodness. 2) I can't help but feel like I got kicked off the show! I know I've left Paris...but still. Can't there be a "distinguished alumni" category or something? ;) 3) Thank you for the sweet comments, but really, I won't be gone for long: if all goes according to plan, I'll be back to blogging about life in Paris sometime in 2008. And besides, there is no shortage of Paris blogs if one does have a Paris fix (hint: look at the sidebar)! And I recently discovered Mavis Gallant, which will hopefully help me out in this department.
OK. The end! (for now)

No more Etienne Marcel? But what will I read with my morning latte? And where will we get some good eating out tips and tricks for Paris? Hmmm....

Good advice from your boy and best of luck for your new adventures!

Aww, that's cute. I was hoping you'd keep posting from the US too!

It seems that every time I start to read a blog about Paris the author moves and stops blogging. What's with that? I'll miss you.

Good luck Etienne, I will continue to visit your archives for restaurant recommendations and just for entertaining reading (I finally got around to Les Allobroges in the 20th last weekend, it was terrific, thanks again for that post about it)

I really loved your blog; I took your recommendations with me on a week-long trip to Paris in December.

Oh! Best of luck with everything, but know that your blog was a joy and I hope to read you again soon.
