Dear Journal Viewers, 

Well as many of you know or now will know, I took an amazing ten-day tour through Europe this Easter break. I wouldn't have traded it for anything, I am so thankful to my parents for giving me the oppurtunity! 
Our wonderful group of highschoolers and chaperones--35 total, went through 3 major cities (Paris, Brussels, and Amsterdam)  and took three mini-trips (Bruges, Antwerp, and a little town outside of Amsterdam that I forget the name of!).

I decided then and there that I am determined to live in Europe!  It's truly amazing, so much history and a true culture! 

So without further adieu here are the long awaited photos--there are lots! They speak for themselves. 


.Our beautiful French tourguide, Jean Christophe, we nicknamed him "J.C"  


well this is self-explanitory...


The military acedemy statue...


this too...! 


Musee d'Orsay..


the entrance to gardens at Versailles! 


me randomly in Paris waiting for the metro! 


woops forgot to resize lol but a Paris street, this makes me happy! 


Effiel Tower lit up at night! it sparkles!! 


somewhere in Brussels! 


Bruges is amazing! (it's in Belgium)


Atomic thing in Brussels from the 58' world's fair! 


more Bruges beautifulness 


Seaport town outside of Amsterdam maybe called Vollendam (??) 

Well that's just the tip of the iceberg as for all of the 600 photos I took.  Hope that was enjoyable!

That'd be a great minor! You definitely have the talent. :)

Have to say, her elusiveness is one of the many things about her with which I'm fascinated. Ohhhhhhh, yes, do I ever have icons! These were all made back when my photoshop skills were still at a basic level, so they're definitely in need of some revamping soon. Yet, I figured I'd share them anyway: http://s280.photobucket.com/albums/kk172/randomcrazies/non-animated%20icons/

I've also just started working on some animated icons with Deneuve.

Btw, we watched Juliette Binoche "Bleu" in my Film History class the other day, and guess who's header kept flashing in my mind? ;)

omg ICONS!! Well that's probably better than I could do, computers are well, they aren't my friend lol hello, it took me this long to ask about the cut thing lol
haha! I love your icon, I watched a brief clip of Deneuve singing in 8 femmes omg *sexy* haha and it's in french lol

"Bleu" is the reason I just adore Juliette, she's so brilant in anything she does, but that film is amazing. It's painful to see her character struggling to let all of this emotion out, and fighting it. Ahhh Juliette...
