moving from one swamp to another...

In my life I have not moved very often nor very far. This move to Paris is the furthest I have ever been from home as well as far from what I know to be home. France is a western nation like the US. BUT there are many differences that are apparent.

I have visited Paris/France many times. And I am married to a Frenchman and understand the basics of what makes the French, French. My husband is however been living in the US for the past 8 years. So this may be a learning experience for him as well as for me.

We are preparing for the move which will take place in early June. We are making a stop to visit some family before we are in our new home town on June 14th.

This summer will be spent remodeling every room in the apartment (some with help from contractors and others by ourselves/with family). And of course a summer in France would not be the same without a vacation thrown in the mix. The Vacation Days are one of the things we are looking forward to (4x's as much to be exact!).

This blog will be dedicated to living in Paris (the good, the bad and the ugly), being a stay at home mom to our baby boy (ditto) and remodeling our apartment.

Blogging might bring out more topics of inspiration so stay tuned.
