What a week!

Weighing in at 280 pages, laden with calories, memories and more than a couple embarrassing moments from my life abroad, my baby, Paris, My Sweet, is finally out in the world!

As well as a feature in the New York Post (!).

There was a double flower delivery… Dinner with friends from different chapters of my life… drinks and nightcaps and bottles… and a million well wishes and sweet thoughts. It was incredible. Thank you, everyone. It's been the best week ever!


  1. Oh..Congratulations!! I am so excited for you and I can't wait to read my copy! Enjoy, Enjoy!!

  2. You deserve all of it and MORE!!! Get ready to for the SECOND best week ever when you get to Paris this Spring!! Another round of drinks and nightcaps and bottles awaits you!! Can't wait to see you and celebrate! xoxo m

  3. Amy, you are a superstar! Such a lovely, gorgeous, lively woman. I can't wait to devour your book. Yay!

  4. Forgive me if you hear the echoes of someone in South America saying over and over and ..... " This is a book by a friend of mine ... I KNOW HER !! :) .....
    besitos and Congrats and I hope they break records selling all the bookstores out.

  5. In many ways, I feel like I'm living in the excitement with you ! 2012 is your year Amy!

  6. What a feat - congratulations! Can't wait to read it and add it to my collection of "living in France" books.
    Warm regards

  7. I am reading it with so much joy! Every Francophiles must-read book! Can we trade lives?

  8. I've loved following your blog and I bought your book for my iphone kindle app yesterday and I can't put it down! Great job!

  9. Congratulations Amy! Actually I posted my review of your book the day it came out! Here it is. I loved it and plan to check some places next time I get to Paris- I'm French and living in the US! Here is my review:

  10. Congrats on the book, Amy. Looking forward to it.

  11. Congratulations! I'm also looking forward to reading your book.

  12. Bravo Amy!
    What a terrific writeup in the Post too!
    Utterly delish

  13. Bonjour Amy! Like you, I studied abroad in Paris in college and am hoping to move back for grad school this fall. I have been an avid reader of your blog for some time now and just got your book in the mail on Friday... I have NOT been able to put it down. Your vivid descriptions of Paris, your funny encounters with the French, and all the food you experienced along your journey are not only an inspiration to me (as they hit very close to home!) but also just a joy to read. Congratulations on the incredible accomplishment and bonne chance on your next book!!
    Will you be doing any book tours or signings?

  14. I'm so happy and elated and proud and excited for you! What a wonderful moment of your life to savour! A chapter forever in print, as it should be.

    Congratulations mon amie!!!!

    I loved every page :)

  15. CONGRATS!! You are amazing! I'm almost finished with the book - it's superb and I'm so proud of you!!!

  16. Woo hooo!! And you look absolutely terrific in that picture for the New York Post. Love the shoes! As I put on FB, my copy should be here in Paris on... March 6. Yeah, is a little slower. *sigh* I would have just downloaded the Kindle version, but I really wanted to hold the real book in hand, and then have it on my shelf later. :) I am sure it will be worth the wait! Loved Kasia's post, and am looking forward to reading the what the other bloggers have to say, too.

    I'm so glad this day is here, Amy, and I hope that this book takes off, sky high! NYT Bestseller List, here she comes! :D

    Take care, Amy. Have fun with everything going on. :)

  17. Congrats on your baby being born!
